Commenting on the catalogue for Book 1 of the 2018 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said:

“The catalogue for last year’s October Book 1 was outstanding and the 2018 renewal looks to be equally special. There are a huge number of own or half brothers and sisters to Group and Listed winners in the catalogue, but equally impressive is that 130 of the yearlings are out of Group and Listed winning mares, including many of the truly outstanding racemares of our time, and a further 76 are out of Group and Listed placed mares. Graduates of the October Yearling Sale have as ever enjoyed enormous success on the global stage headed by 65,000 guineas Irish Derby winner LATROBE, and the enormously popular £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus will again ensure that buyers have the chance to win unprecedented prize money by purchasing at Europe’s premier yearling sale.“

Catalogues are online now at www.tattersalls.com and will be available from Tattersalls and Tattersalls Representatives from Monday, 20th August.
