Dubawi Colt Tops December Yearling Sale

The Tattersalls December Sale got underway in Newmarket with a day of yearlings to kick off proceedings. The DUBAWI colt from Hazelwood Stud was the top price of the day with three lots selling for 100,000 guineas or more.

Lot 35: O'Callaghan buys Dubawi colt for 200,000 Guineas.

David O'Callaghan of Sun Bloodstock secured the DUBAWI colt out of VOLEUSE DE COEURS for 200,000 guineas after seeing off Stroud Coleman Bloodstock’s Anthony Stroud. The colt is out of the Group 1 Irish St Leger-winning daughter of TEOFILO.

"We've bought out the partnership," said O'Callaghan. "She was a very good mare and he is quite similar to her in looks – he had just been held up a bit and so had not sold earlier this autumn.

"This colt is a good mover and looks as though he will need some time – that is fine, we can give him time. He goes to David Simcock."

The April-born colt was consigned by Hazelwood Bloodstock, consignor of this year's 3.6 million guineas October Book 1 top lot, also a son of DUBAWI.

Lot 146: Stroud Strikes for Golden Horn Colt

The Derby winner GOLDEN HORN has made a good start to his stud career with his first runners on the track this year and agent Anthony Stroud went to 100,000 guineas to secure his son out of the SELKIRK mare LEADERENE. The Staffordstown offering is a half-brother to LE DON DE VIE, a three-time winner and rated 101.

"He is a very attractive horse," said Stroud. "He was bred by very good breeder in Kirsten Rausing. His half-brother is a well-rated horse."

LEADERENE is a half-sister to the Group 1 Prix de l’Opera winner LADY MARIAN, dam of Group 2 winner LOXLEY, and is from a deep German family that includes the Champions LOMITAS, LA DORADA and LA COLORADA.

Lot 181: Elliot Buys Sea The Stars Filly

Agent Alex Elliot struck late in the day to secure the SEA THE STARS filly out of the Listed-placed TERTULLIAN mare NINAS TERZ.

"It has been a frustrating day as we have missed on a couple, but this filly was a stand-out to me," said buyer Alex Elliott of The Castlebridge Consignment's Sea The Stars filly.

"She has a lovely page – it has one I like a lot – her full-sister Fashion's Star was bought as a yearling by Brendan Holland for 100,000 euros and sold as a breeze-up for 400,000 euros. She had a lot of ability.

"She will stay in England, but we don't which trainer as yet."

The Sunderland Holdings bred filly is out of a half-sister to PAKISTAN STAR, a dual Group 1 winner in Hong Kong.

The Tattersalls December Foal Sale starts at 10am on Wednesday, November 27.
