Siyouni Filly Heads Strong Second Day at Tattersalls October Book 2

Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale continued in robust fashion on the second day with eighteen lots selling for 200,000 guineas or more. The turnover and average were both up on the corresponding session last year with the clearance rate remaining at a solid 86%.

Siyouni Filly to Shadwell for 450,000 Guineas

David & Henrietta Egan’s Corduff Stud enjoyed a spectacular result when their SIYOUNI filly out of the DESERT STYLE mare BRYNICA was sold to Shadwell Estates for 450,000 guineas after he saw off the efforts of Juddmonte Farms’ Lord Grimthorpe and agent Stephen Hillen. The dam BRYNICA is a half-sister to the Group 1 Prix du Jockey Club third BARAAN and to BRUXCALINA, dam of the Group 1 British Champion Sprint winner LIBRISA BREEZE.

"We bought her dam at auction from the Aga Khan's draft on the advice of Blandford Bloodstock," said David Egan of Corduff Stud. "She is from an original Lagardere family.

"We knew the filly today had lots of interest and she was making lists, but it is very difficult to value them to that.

"The mare had a Lope De Vega filly this year and is in-foal to Dabirsim."

Purchaser Angus Gold of Shadwell Estates said: "Sheikh Hamdan was very keen to buy fillies this week, and she was on the list very early on. She is a very nice filly with a great attitude - her ears were pricked the whole time.

"I didn't think that we'd have to go that far, but the Sheikh very much wanted her and John Gosden was keen too - I guess that is where she will go into training."

Anthony Stroud Strikes to Secure Dansili Filly for 360,000 Guineas

Agent Anthony Stroud struck to secure the already named CASSANDRA, the DANSILI filly consigned by Stauffenberg Bloodstock for 360,000 guineas after seeing of the efforts of SackvilleDonald’s Alastair Donald.

"She is a very nice filly, very athletic," said Anthony Stroud. "It was a little more than perhaps we were anticipating, but we were up against a formidable opponent. Her two-year-old half-brother Catan, who has won recently, looks a promising sort, is rated 97 and he is the only runner for the mare so far.

"As we also saw last week, good fillies can be very valuable."

CASSANDRA is out of the SHIROCCO mare CAPICHERA, daughter of the Group 2 Preis der Diana winner CENTAINE, and a half-sister to CALRISSIAN, the winner of 25 races in Denmark, France, Germany and Sweden, including the Group 3 Taby Open Championship and three Listed races.

No Nay Never Colt Fetches 320,000 Guineas

The success of first season sire NO NAY NEVER’s progeny on the racecourse has been reflected in the Tattersalls sales ring this week and his son out of the STREET CRY mare WHITEFALL caught the eye on day two of Book 2 of the October Yearling Sale when knocked down to Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock for 320,000 guineas.

The Kilminfoyle House Stud consigned colt received a solid update to his pedigree since the catalogue was printed when his KODIAC half-brother DARK JEDI won on debut and more recently was runner up in the Listed Stonehenge Stakes at Salisbury.

After the sale Doyle commented:

"The stallion has done unbelievably well this year - he has put in some great stats. This is a lovely horse, good moving, strong and mature.

"The mare has proved she can do it too with the recent black-type update. She is also by Street Cry, which is a positive. The colt goes to Richard Hannon, let's hope he is good!"

Kingman Colt Stars for Putsch

Andreas Putsch’s Haras de Saint Pair were consigning at Tattersalls for the first time and enjoyed a fruitful sale with their only two lots realising a total of 420,000 guineas. Leading the way was the KINGMAN colt out of the Group 3 winning mare BUGIE D’AMORE who was bought by SackvilleDonald’s Alastair Donald for 280,000 guineas.

Donald said: “I think that the sire speaks for himself, he averaged highly last week. Both of this colt's siblings have achieved ratings of 90 or more and he was a lovely individual. He was good looking and also well balanced.”

KINGMAN’s average in Book 1 was 314,714 guineas and so far this week in Book 2 it is 243,571 guineas for seven yearlings sold, with the top price yesterday of 750,000 guineas.

Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale continues at 10am on Wednesday, October 17th with the third and final session.
