Kingman Colt Lights Up Second Day Of Tattersalls October Book 2

Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale continued in robust fashion on the second day with six lots selling for 300,000 guineas or more and a Kingman colt topping proceedings at 525,000 guineas. There were rises across the board with turnover topping 18 million guineas for the second consecutive session.

The top price on the second day of Book 2 of the October Yearling Sale was 525,000 guineas for the Kingman colt from Adrian and Philippa O’Brien’s Hazelwood Bloodstock. The son of the Listed winning and Group placed Galileo mare Reem was knocked down to Juddmonte Farms’ Simon Mockridge after he saw off the effort of John Gosden who trains King Leonidas, this colt’s older brother who topped this sale at 750,000 guineas in 2018 and who is officially rated 103.

Consignor Adrian O’Brien of Hazelwood Bloodstock said: “What more is there to say than, in a nutshell, we are delighted. The full-brother topped the sale three years ago and it is clearly a cross that works. King Leonidas has had a few setbacks, but he is back on track now and he is clearly a very talented horse.

“I am very flattered that Juddmonte has bought a horse of his quality from our farm and delighted for the breeder and for everyone. It is just fantastic, we wish them the very best of luck.”

Juddmonte Farms purchased three yearlings at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale for 1,230,000 guineas.

U.S. agent Ben McElroy will be hoping that history repeats itself after buying a Kodiac filly from the draft of Tally-Ho Stud for 340,000 guineas. It was that combination at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale in 2019 that resulted in the purchase of dual Group 1 winner Campanelle.

“She has been bought for same connections as Campanelle,” revealed McElroy. “I saw her two or three days ago, she has a lot of likeness with Campanelle. She has the scope for a Kodiac filly and is a half-sister to a filly we are familiar with in Ventura Diamond, and her siblings are all well rated. She is obviously by a top sire of fillies, and we have had a lot of luck with the sire.”

The filly, who is out of Zamindar mare Shehila, is a half-sister to the Listed Bosra Sham Stakes winner and Group 3 Bengough Stakes placed Ventura Diamond and was secured by McElroy after a bidding duel with Anthony Stroud.

McElroy added: “She stands over a lot of ground, I think she is going to be quick. She has a lot of presence and a lot of class, just everything you like to see in a filly. She will go back to America.”

Campanelle is owned by Barbara Banke’s Stonestreet Stables and trained in the U.S. by Wesley Ward. She won the Group 1 Prix Morny Stakes and Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes as a 2-year-old and returned to Royal Ascot this year to win the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup.

McElroy continued: “Hopefully the luck continues, and I think Barbara Banke has already picked out a name for her!”

Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale continues with the third and final session at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 13.
