Tattersalls Releases Craven Catalogue


Donjuan Triumphant | racingfotos.com

A Shalaa (Ire) colt out of GI Beverly D. S. winner Royal Highness (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}) (lot 116) and a Dubawi (Ire) filly out of G2 Park S. victress Meeznah (Dynaformer) (lot 83) are among the expected highlights of the 145 juveniles in the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale, for which the catalogue was released on Monday. The sale takes place Apr. 14 and 15, with the breeze on Apr. 13 on the Rowley Mile.

The Shalaa colt, a €25,000 Arqana October yearling, is consigned by Kilminfoyle House Stud and is a half-brother to triple French group winner Free Port Lux (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) and from the immediate family of dual Group 1 winner Wild Illusion (GB). The Dubawi filly out of Meeznah was a 180,000gns buy back at the Tattersalls October yearling sale and is consigned here by Egmont Stud.

There are 18 2-year-olds catalogued out of group or listed-winning mares, and 28 siblings to black-type winners. The five catalogued by Kingman (GB) include half-brothers to Group 1 winners Al Kazeem (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) (lot 62) and Poet’s Word (GB) (Poet’s Voice {GB}) (lot 142). Grove Stud offers a full-brother to G1 Cheveley Park S. winner Rosdhu Queen (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) (lot 49), while Brown Island Stables presents a Showcasing (GB) half-sister to G1 Australian Cup winner Harlem (GB) (Champs Elysees {GB}) (lot 25). The American-bred juveniles include a half-brother to GI Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown (Boundary) by Temple City (lot 85). Other American sires represented include American Pharoah, Bernardini, Dialed In, Distorted Humor, the recently deceased Empire Maker, Flintshire (GB), Kitten’s Joy, Noble Mission (GB), Street Boss, Union Rags and War Front.

Leading second- and third-crop sires Night Of Thunder (Ire), No Nay Never and Kingman (GB) are all represented, as are leading general sires like Acclamation (GB), Dark Angel (Ire), Dubawi (Ire), Exceed and Excel (Aus), Invincible Spirit (Ire), Kodiac (GB), Lope De Vega (Ire), Oasis Dream (GB), Shamardal, Showcasing (GB) and Siyouni (Fr).

First-crop sires with progeny on offer include Awtaad (Ire), Belardo (Ire), Charming Thought (GB), Harzand (Ire), New Bay (GB), Pride of Dubai (Aus), Shalaa (Ire), Territories (Ire), The Gurkha (Ire), Twilight Son (GB) and Vadamos (Fr).

All 145 2-year-olds will once again be eligible for the £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus, which was collected 10 times last year and which will be tied to in excess of 300 races this season. The Craven Breeze Up Sale has produced 52 black-type winners since 2015, including last year’s G1 British Champions Sprint winner Donjuan Triumphant (Ire) (Dream Ahead), who cost just 30,000gns.

“Outstanding racecourse results maintain the Craven Breeze Up Sale’s global appeal and are a testament to the support of the top British and Irish breeze-up consignors,” said Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony. “Group 1 British Champions Sprint winner Donjuan Triumphant crowned another year of success for sale graduates who have flown the flag for the Craven Breeze Up Sale in group races across Britain, Ireland, France, the U.S., the Gulf Region and Australia. The Craven Breeze Up Bonus was incredibly well received in its first year and reinforces the sale’s market-leading status, providing another compelling reason to buy at the Craven Breeze Up Sale.

“This year’s catalogue of 145 lots has quality and diversity in abundance and as ever the sale looks certain to attract a strong contingent of domestic and international buyers.” (fonte : TDN)


Orby Double On Saudi Cup Day & Stakes Success in US
Goffs graduates enjoyed more success on the international stage at the weekend, with a double for the Orby Sale on Saudi Cup day in Riyadh and another Graded winner in the US.

The first race on the inaugural Saudi Cup card and the first ever to be run on turf in Saudi Arabia, the Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors Cup, was won in great style by the Fawzi Nass trained Port Lions with international Group 1 filly Deirdre in second.  Previously a dual winner in Ireland for Madeleine Tylicki, Port Lions is a graduate of the 2016 Goffs Orby Sale where he was sold by Lodge Park Stud to John Ferguson.

The second turf race on the day, the 1351 Cup, was won by the Allan Smith trained Dark Power under Frankie Dettori.  Owned by Al Adiyat Racing, the son of Dark Angel was bred by Guy O’Callaghan and sold by his Grangemore Stud to Clive Cox Racing at the Orby Sale.

In America, Elizabeth Way proved to be a shrewd purchase by John McCormack at the recent Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale from the Godolphin draft as the Roger Attfield trained Frankel filly won the Grade 3 The Very One Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Saturday and is now two wins from two since the sale.  

Nominations are now open for the 2020 Goffs Orby Sale which takes place from 29 – 30 September 2020:
