Juddmonte Farms Draft the Highlight on Day 3 of Tattersalls December Mares Sale

The Juddmonte Farms consignment is normally the highlight of the third day of the Tattersalls December Mares Sale and the draft of fillies from the leading nursery did not disappoint, realising 2,809,000 guineas for the 24 lots sold.

Aquis Buys Time Saver for 750,000 Guineas

The leading light for the Juddmonte draft was the FRANKEL filly TIME SAVER who was knocked down to agent Demi O’Byrne for 750,000 guineas.

"She is for Aquis," said O'Byrne after signing the docket. "She is a very good-looking filly and breeding plans have not been decided but she might well be bred in Europe."

O’Byrne secured the filly after a prolonged battle with Blandford Bloodstock’s Richard Brown and eventual underbidder Timmy Hyde, stood with Paul Shanahan.

TIME SAVER is a half-sister to the Group 1 winners TIMEPIECE and PASSAGE OF TIME, herself the dam of Group 2 winner and sire TIME TEST. She is also a half-sibling to the Group 2 winner FATHER TIME and to the Listed winner CONTINUUM. The family also includes the Champion and four-time Group 1 winner TWICE OVER.

Aquis Farm is owned by the Hong Kong-based Fung family. The farm was established in 2015 initially at Canungra in Queensland and at Seymour in Victoria. In 2017, Aquis took over the management of Emirates Park in New South Wales. It now stands 14 stallions, has a broodmare band numbering 186 mares and over 150 horses in training.

Blandford Strike for Wild Rye at 300,000 Guineas

Blandford Bloodstock’s Richard Brown got some recompense for missing out on the purchase of TIME SAVER by purchasing the next two lots through the ring including WILD RYE for 300,000 guineas. The three-year-old daughter of BATED BREATH is a sister to the Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris winner ZAMBEZI SUN and also caught the attention of Jono Mills and Hugo Lascelles.

"She is for an established British-based client and the filly will stay in England” said Brown. “It makes such sense to buy from Juddmonte, such outstanding breeders."

"There is a huge amount happening in the family, it would be no huge leap of faith to see in the next ten years the whole page taken up by the first dam.

"Last night was frustrating as trade was so hot, but am really pleased to get her."

WILD RYE’s pedigree had received a timely update subsequent to cataloguing with her half-sister SHARED ACCOUNT now the dam of Group 3 Prix des Reservoirs winner POCKET SQUARE.

Newtown Anner Secure Oboe for 290,000 Guineas

There was plenty of North American interest in the MIZZEN MAST filly OBOE with agent Jim Schenck and Denali Stud’s Conrad Bandaroff both making bold bids to secure the winning daughter of the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks winner FLUTE. However the pair were no match for BBA Ireland’s Eamonn Reilly who secured the three-year-old for 290,000 guineas on behalf of Newtown Anner Stud.

"Newtown Anner bought Entwine and so that is the interest with this filly," said Reilly. "She will stay in Europe and she is a good outcross."

An EMPIRE MAKER half-sister to OBOE, ENTWINE is the dam of this year's Group 3 Nell Gwyn Stakes winner and 1,000 Guineas third QABALA. The Tattersalls December Mares Sale continues at 9.30am on Thursday 5th December with the fourth and final session.
