  • This is Europe's largest summer sale - and at 877 lots (including four wildcard entries), Tattersalls have compiled their largest July Sale catalogue since 2008.
     
    This year's sale opens off the back of a hot run of success. In Australia, the Juddmonte-bred Index Linked recently landed the Group 3 Tattersalls Cup Handicap at Eagle Farm - he was a 26,000gns purchase by Mick Flanagan's Townley Hall Bloodstock at the 2012 renewal.
     
    African Jade, meanwhile, is the dam of recent Grade 1 Triple Bend Stakes winner Lord Nelson. She was a 37,000gns Tattersalls July purchase by Ted Voute on behalf of the Cleary family's Clearsky Farm in Kentucky.
     
    In fact, during 2015 alone, the Tattersalls July Sale produced the dams of 13 individual Group 1 and 2 winners, including Group 1 Grosser Preis von Baden winner Prince Gibraltar, Grade 1 Manhattan Handicap winner Slumber and Italian Derby winner Goldstream - their dams were purchased for 16,000gns, 6,500gns and 16,500gns respectively.
     
    Last year's sale featured strong participation from both domestic and international buyers, resulting in rises across-the-board. A total of 486 lots sold for 8,949,800gns, up 7 per cent rise on 2014, while the average and median both rose 10 per cent to 18,415 gns and 11,000 gns.
     
    Trade was led by Listed winner Riskit Fora Biskit, a daughter of Kodiac sold by Stratford Place Stud in foal to Dark Angel for 230,000gns to Stroud/Coleman Bloodstock, acting on behalf of Ed's Stud.
     
    Today's session starts at 9.30am and primarily features mares in foal and fillies in and out of training.

  • This is a sale that always attracts its share of international buyers, none more so prominent than leading Qatari trainer Jassim Al Ghazali. However, it's really noticeable how many Americans have made the trip - perhaps not surprising given the current exchange rates.
     
    Freddy Seitz, whose family's Brookdale Farm are regular players in this market, is here as is Leif Aaron of Taylor Made Farm. Justin Casse is also back.

  • One of the biggest success stories of the past year for this sale has been recent Grade 1 Triple Bend Stakes winner African Jade, who was purchased in 2010 by Ted Voute on behalf of Eamon Cleary's Clearsky Farm for 37,000gns.
     
    The daughter of Seeking The Gold was sold as an unplaced three-year-old by Henri-Alex Pantall on behalf of Darley. She is out of Argentinean Group 1 winner Miss Linda, a daughter of Southern Halo who also struck at the top level in America when successful in the Grade 1 Spinster Stakes.
     
    Lord Nelson, by Pulpit, is the first foal out of the mare and provided an excellent return for the farm as a yearling when sold for $340,000.
     
    "We worked closely with Alan Porter," recalls Voute. "He does all the book work and gives me a short list, and I look round to see what is physically acceptable.
     
    "We usually end up with a list of four or five. In African Jade's case, it was the Seeking The Gold that really got us going. And it's a good Argentinean family - Eamon had farms in Argentina as well so was keen to have a go."
     
    Voute bought four mares in all for the Kentucky venture at Tattersalls during that year and each are now stakes producers. They include Somasach, purchased by Voute for 125,000gns and subsequently the dam of Wesley Ward's Listed-winning juvenile Silvertoni, and Rhineshark, a mere 10,000gns purchase who is the dam of the stakes-placed Blue Wings.
     
    A recent purple patch for the farm also includes leading American three-year-old, out of Justwhistledixie. 
     
    It’s such a shame that Eamon Cleary didn’t live to see Clearsky Farm. Cleary died in September 2012, just weeks after the farm’s first draft of yearlings came under the hammer at Keeneland, among them subsequent Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner New Year’s Day. However, the farm remains under the ownership of his family.

  • Lot 47: Princess Guest
     
    Moderate fare so far - the average is running at 4,529gns for 18 sold - but Louise Parry of Pantycoed Stud turns a nice profit on her mare, Princess Guest, who sells for 20,000gns to Hannah Wall.
     
    The daughter of Iffraaj, a half-sister to Listed webber Imperial Guest, was picked up by Pantycoed for 6,500gns here in February. 
     
    She was sold carrying a foal from the first northern hemisphere crop of Brazen Beau.

  • Lot 75: Ms Grande Corniche
     
    Dean Harron goes to 38,000gns for this attractive Pivotal mare from Lanwades Stud. Sold in foal to Sir Percy, she is out of Listed winner Miss Corniche and a half-sister to the Group 2-placed Moyenne Corniche.

  • Lot 77: Bling Ring
     
    Trade remains lukewarm - however, it's not long until the first Godolphin draft of horses, which were always likely to carry this session.
     
    In the meantime, a moderate highlight comes in the form of the Arch mare Bling Ring, a well-connected American-bred who sells out of Brendan Boyle's consignment for 25,000gns to the BBA Ireland.
     
    She was bought back for 10,000gns in this ring last year and offered today in foal to Dream Ahead.
     
    Bling Ring is a placed half-sister to minor American stakes winners Super Dixie and Hard Way Ten and out of Listed winner Youcan'ttakeme.

  • Lot 119: Allegro Viva
     
    First of the Juddmonte mares, a sister to Distant Music, is snapped up by Salcey Forest Stud for 40,000gns.
     
    Sold in foal to Kyllachy, she is already a proven producer having bred the ill-fated Prix Chaudenay winner Canticum.

  • 125: Kahara River
     
    This close relation to Bocca Baciata falls to the Chinese-based YuLong Investments, a first time buyer at Tattersalls, through Seamus Mills for 55,000gns.
     
    YuLong Investments is the racing nom-de-plume for businessman Zhang Yuesheng. Zhang owns a racetrack in China and will break new ground in September by staging a race meeting that features sponsorship from Australian sales company Inglis. The race will be worth approximately $A250,000 and is believed to be the richest prizemoney offered in mainland China.
     
    Zhang has also been steadily increasing his presence in Europe. He has had a number of runners in recent years, trained by the likes of Michael Halford, Johnny Murtagh, Michael O'Callaghan and Eddie Lynam.
     
    Meanwhile, he hit the headlines in Australia earlier in the year when paying A$750,000 for Extremely, the dam of Blue Diamond Stakes winner Extreme Choice, at the Easter Broodmare Sale.
     
    He was also the leading buyer at the Inglis Sydney Classic Sale as the purchaser of 11 yearlings.
     
    Plans call for Kahara River - a Bushranger half-sister to Group 3 winner Perugina and Sovana, the dam of Bocca Baciata - to be covered to southern hemisphere time to one of Europe's premier stallions before shipping to Australia.

  • Lot 129: Timba
     
    Matt Houldsworth of Howson & Houldsworth Bloodstock strikes at 60,000gns for this Oasis Dream mare from a noted George Strawbridge family.
     
    Offered by Whatton Manor Stud in foal to Champs Elysees, the winning Timba is a granddaughter of La Flores, dam of the stakes winners Aiken (Gr2), Sleeping Indian (Gr2), Felicity (Gr3; dam of Gatewood), Nationalism (Listed), La Paz (Listed) and Spanish Spur (Listed).
     
    "It's difficult to buy into these families," said Houldsworth, acting on behalf of an undisclosed British breeder. "It's a lovely family and being by Oasis Dream makes her a stand out."

  • Lot 155: Causeway Lass
     
    Zhang's YuLong Investments strikes again, with Sheamus Mills this time going to 80,000gns for Causeway Lass.
     
    The Australian-bred daughter of Giant's Causeway was a Listed winner in her native country and has since become a stakes producer for Darley as the dam of 2015 UAE 1,000 Guineas third Good Place. She is also in foal to Exceed And Excel, a stallion who works well in both hemispheres.

  • Lot 157: Puzzler
     
    Daughter of New Approach is heading back to her birthplace, Watership Down Stud, after selling to Charlie Gordon-Watson for 100,000gns. The four-year-old from Godolphin is in foal to Raven's Pass.
     
    This is a true Watership Down family that extends to her third dam, the stud's foundation mare Crystal Spray.
     
    Puzzler is a half-sister to Prix Greffulhe winner Ocovango and out of the unraced Crystal Maze, a daughter of Lady Lloyd-Webber's Fillies' Mile heroine Crystal Music. In turn, she is a half-sister to Group 3 winner Dubai Success.
     
    Asked what the plan was for this mare, Gordon-Watson shot back: "Have a foal!"
     
    He added: "She's for Watership Down so going back to where she came from - it's nice to support the family. She was sold privately as a yearling. Crystal Maze is still at Watership, she has a Dansili two-year-old."

  • Lot 159: Desert Snow
     
    The ring filled up for this mare, a young Listed-placed Teofilo mare from the famous Alruccaba family in foal to Night Of Thunder.
     
    Eamon Reilly of the BBA Ireland struck the winning bid of 250,000gns on behalf of Newtown Anner Stud after fending off the likes of Peter Doyle and Richard Brown.
     
    "She is lovely mare," said Reilly. "Maurice Regan Snr picked her out.
     
    "It is a very difficult family to get into. She is a foundation mare and the foal will be retained."
     
    Three-time winner Desert Snow is a half-sister to Listed winner Parish Boy and out of Requesting, a half-sister to Nassau and Sun Chariot Stakes winner Last Second, dam of Aussie Rules, Group 3 winner Alleluia and the Group 1-placed Alouette, dam of champions Albania and Alborada. It is also the family of Yesterday, Quarter Moon and Dragon Dancer.

  • Lot 162: Zuhoor Baynoona
     
    Only mare catalogued in foal to Muhaarar causes a predictable stir, selling out of the Godolphin draft for 250,000gns to Cormac McCormack. Oliver St Lawrence, standing with Julian Dollar, was among the underbidders.
     
    Zuhoor Baynoona was a smart filly for Jaber Abdullah and Richard Fahey who enjoyed her finest moment when successful in last year's Listed Lansdown Stakes at Bath.
     
    "She's a nice mare from a good family who is for an old, established client," said McCormack. "She'll probably go abroad."
     
    By Elnadim, she is out of an unraced half-sister to Listed winner Persian Majesty from the good Plantation Stud family of Sandmason.

    The Godolphin draft continues to carry this session, with Oliver St Lawrence going to 220,000gns for Zoella, another high-priced mare in foal to Night Of Thunder. A busy Eamon Reilly was among the underbidders.
     
    "She is a good-looking mare so has every chance of producing a good-looking yearling," said St Lawrence, acting on behalf of a British-based client. "It's a very good family with lots of positives - there are some young Dubawis coming through."
     
    The winning daughter of Invincible Spirit is a half-sister to Prix de Lieurey winner Zibelina and Listed scorer Floristry, dam of Listed winner Inspirited. Further back, it is the family of Carlton House.

  • Lot 184: Kamakura
     
    A very different market to this morning. The latest to break the six-figure mark is Kamakura, a Medaglia d'Oro half-sister to stakes winner Bay Of Plenty who sells for 150,000gns to Eamon Reilly of the BBA Ireland.
     
    The unraced filly hails from one of the most successful American families of recent times as a great-granddaughter of Up The Flagpole, ancestress of Mineshaft and Mr Sidney among others. This particular filly is also a granddaughter of Irish champion Flagbird.
     
    She was preceded into the ring by Paper Round, an unraced Street Cry daughter of Brigadier Gerard Stakes winner New Morning - a half-sister to Islington, Mountain High et al - who was yet another to be snapped up by YuLong Investments, in this instance for 80,000gns.

    "She's for an existing client," said Grassick. "I absolutely loved her.
     
    "She's ideal for breeding in a bit of Danzig speed, especially as the family has already worked with Cape Cross (Talmud) and Oracle (Danehill Dancer).
     
    "It's a fantastic family and it's lovely to have a mare with both Machiavellian and Galileo in her pedigree."

  • Lot 195: Janine's Approval
     
    Sole mare catalogued in foal to champion Karakontie sells for 36,000gns to Ed Harper. I've made no secret of the fact I'm a fan of this horse - a top-class two-year-old and Classic-winning miler from the family of Kingmambo, I feel he has plenty going for him. He has just completed his first season at Gainesway in Kentucky at a fee of $15,000, and according to the farm's director of sales Michael Hernon, has 102 mares in foal from leading breeders such as Flaxman Holdings, Merriebelle Farm, Ramsey Farm and Lane's End Farm.
     
    "I hold high expectations for Karakontie at stud," said Hernon, Gainesway director of sales.
     
    "Karakontie had real racing ability an he descends from the precocious Storm Cat lire Line through his sire, Bernstein. He also comes from the top-class female family of Miesque, herself dam of leading sire Kingmambo.
     
    "He has strong, excellent balance and a text book hind leg while he possessed that great quality found in most top stallions - ability to accelerate."
     
    Janine's Approval is a half-sister to tough sprinters Tax Free and Inxile. She was claimed for just $14,000 in America last winter.

  • Lot 213: Duet
     
    Will Douglass of Charlie Gordon-Watson Bloodstock sees off plenty of competition to secure this young Pivotal mare in foal to Nathaniel from Cheveley Park Stud for 120,000gns.
     
    Duet is out of Miswaki Belle and therefore a full or half-sister to the very fast fillies Humouresque and Danehurst - both of whom were represented by maiden winners last week. Further back it is the good Cheveley Park family of Dazzle and Hooray.
     
    Duet: sold for 120,000gns to Will Douglass. Photo: Tattersalls
     
     
    "She's for a new client," said Douglass. "I thought she was a really attractive Pivotal mare and it's nice to have Miswaki [damsire] close up.
     
    "There's a lot of speed in the pedigree, a lot of good two-year-olds including Cheveley Park winners. There's also a lot happening in there - Danehurst is in foal to Galileo for example. And Nathaniel is exciting. I thought she stood out."

  • Lot 220: On Location
     
    The latest mare to hit six figures is On Location, yet another high-profile purchase for the BBA Ireland at 100,000gns. The daughter of Street Cry was sold by Brook Stud in foal to Kodiac, having been knocked down for €85,000, again to the BBA Ireland, at Goffs in February.

  • Lot 263: Carte De Visite
     
    Maurice Regan's Newtown Anner Stud makes another strike through Eamon Reilly of the BBA Ireland, paying a new top price of 270,000gns for Carte De Visite, a half-sister to Raven's Pass.
     
    The unraced three-year-old Street Cry filly is yet another highlight of the Godolphin draft, which has underpinned today's sale.
     
    In addition to Raven's Pass, she is also a half-sister to Grade 3 winner Gigawatt and from the further family of E Dubai and Rainbow View.
     
    "She goes back to the stud with the Teofilo mare we bought earlier," said Reilly. "These are great pedigrees to get into and many of them are nice outcrosses for our stallions.
     
    "Newtown Anner have had a great year - they own Sunday's Mother Goose Stakes winner Off The Tracks, had a Listed winner on Monday and of course there's Fascinating Rock. So they've had a great year and now are trying to upgrade the mares again.
     
    "This is a very good draft from Godolphin, in my opinion one of the best drafts I've ever seen in a July Sale. It represents an excellent opportunity."

  • Lot 276: Lake Hamana
     
    One of the most powerful drafts seen at Tattersalls in recent years continues to draw the big players, with Sheamus Mills going to 210,000gns for Lake Hamana on behalf of Yulong Investments.
     
    An eighth purchase of the day for the Chinese-based operation, the unraced Lake Hamana is a Shamardal daughter of Listed scorer Lake Toya, herself a granddaughter of the phenomenal producer Doff The Derby, dam of Generous and Imagine among others.

  • Lot 280: Main Chance
     
    Two quick strikes for McKeever Bloodstock, acting on behalf of Australian operation Aquis Farm. 
     
    The Queensland-based stud was virtually unknown in the racing and bloodstock industry until a few months ago when it was announced that they would stand Coolmore stallion Holy Roman Emperor alongside Domesday, Benfica and recent Group 2 QTC Cup winner Spill The Beans for the upcoming southern hemisphere season.
     
    Gwenella (279), an Authorized half-sister to Queensland Oaks winner Allow from the good Lagardere family of Fragrant Mix and Alpine Rose, was the first to be snapped up by the stud, falling for 120,000gns.
     
    She was followed into the ring by Main Chance, an unraced Street Cry half-sister to Nassau Stakes winner Favourable Terms who was knocked down for 140,000gns.

  • Lot 300: Lieoftheland
     
    As a half-sister to Australian Group 1 winner Magic Hurricane, it's no surprise to see this filly head Down Under by selling to McKeever Bloodstock for 120,000gns on behalf of Aquis Farm.
     
    She continues a busy hour for the Queensland operation following the earlier purchases of Main Chance and Gwenella.
     
    Although unraced, Lieoftheland, by Canford Cliffs, provides an excellent return for connections having been bought for just 17,000gns as a yearling by Andy Oliver.
