All of the current top 20 active sires standing in Britain and Ireland are well represented with the current top four GALILEO, DUBAWI, FRANKEL and SEA THE STARS having 94 yearlings catalogued between them. Amongst the 21 yearlings by Coolmore’s nine-time Champion sire GALILEO are the own or half brothers to Classic and Group 1 winners GOLDEN HORN and WAS as well as the own-sisters to Irish Derby hero CAPRI and Grand Prix de Paris winner KEW GARDENS.

In total the top 20 active sires have 265 yearlings catalogued between them with the current top 10 accounting for a massive 166 yearlings. Top 10 sires DARK ANGEL and SEA THE STARS have 20 and 27 apiece, KODIAC and INVINCIBLE SPIRIT have 23 and 17 respectively, while NEW APPROACH, sire of Derby winner MASAR has seven catalogued and MASTERCRAFTSMAN, sire of superstar filly ALPHA CENTAURI, a further five.

Now well established as one of the world’s leading sires, the incomparable FRANKEL’s 25 yearlings also look set to command plenty of international attention and include the half sisters to Group 1 and 2 winners ALJAZZI, MASKED MARVEL and SULTANINA as well as the half brother to Champion miler RIP VAN WINKLE.

Sires with their first crop of two year olds also feature prominently with current leader NO NAY NEVER having 10 catalogued from his second crop, CHARM SPIRIT three and KINGMAN an impressive 31, including the half sister to Champion two year old RIZEENA and the half brother to this year’s Group 1 Grand Prix de Saint Cloud winner WALDGEIST.

Devotees of first crop yearling sires will also be spoilt for choice with 15 freshmen represented by a total of 91 yearlings led by the Champion trio of outstanding Derby winner GOLDEN HORN, dual Guineas winner GLENEAGLES and all-conquering sprinter MUHAARAR who have 18, 15 and 30 yearlings catalogued respectively. DUBAWI’s 2000 Guineas winning son NIGHT OF THUNDER is also well represented with a further nine yearlings catalogued.

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.
