Tattersalls August Sale Catalog Now Online

The catalog for the two-day Tattersalls August Sale, which takes place Tuesday, Aug. 31 – Wednesday Sept. 1, is now online and can be viewed at www.tattersalls.com.

Numbering 458 lots, the Tattersalls August Sale comprises 308 colts and geldings in/out of training and 138 fillies in/out of training, as well as 12 broodmares.

This year’s edition of the Tattersalls August Sale has again attracted consignments from many of the world’s foremost owner/breeders including Ballydoyle Stables, Godolphin, Juddmonte Farms and Shadwell Estate Company, as well as drafts from many of the UK and Ireland’s leading trainers.

High-class French form is a feature amongst the leading lots cataloged in the August Sale. Agent Jamie Railton will offer Pascal Bary’s Group 3 winner Pretrville, runner-up in the Group 2 Prix du Muguet in May, alongside a pair of Listed-placed two-year-olds colts in Bunglejungleparty and Papa Don’t Preach.

Well-bred colts with high-class form are a customary feature of drafts from Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle Stables and the Group 3 placed duo Arturo Toscanini and Lough Derg and the Listed placed Horoscope look certain to attract plenty of interest.

Several promising lightly-raced 3-year-olds look certain to pique the interest of buyers including the Paddy Twomey trained Beamish, the Teofilo half-brother to dual Group 3 winner Bourree who was an impressive three-length winner of his only start at Leopardstown. The winning Territories gelding London Royal has earned an official rating of 94 following only three starts for trainer Ted Walsh, and Roger Varian’s 90-rated Dinoo broke his maiden by four lengths on his most recent start at Haydock. William Haggas will offer the progressive Sea the Stars gelding Chalk Stream, rated 86 following a win on his most recent start at York.

Consignments from Juddmonte Farms are always amongst the highlights of horses-in-training sales at Tattersalls and their select August Sale draft is no exception featuring the smart three-year-old colt Fabilis, a 96-rated full brother to Group 3 winner Monarchs Glen. The ever-popular Godolphin draft includes a customary offering of smartly-bred fillies led by Bright Spirit, a daughter of Dubawi out of the three-time Group 3 winner Local Time.

Buyers looking for well-related fillies will have plenty more to consider including the Baroda Stud-consigned Golden Hind, a half-sister to dual Group 1 winner Amazing Maria, and Burning Sea, a full-sister to Group 3 winner Blue de Vega and to the dam of Group 2 winner Angel Power who will be offered by the Castlebridge Consignment.

The largest consignment comes from Shadwell Estate Company who have a draft of 44 lots catalogued featuring unexposed winning 3-year-olds Afkaar, Maraakiz, Mothill, and Taskheer and several highly-rated older horses including the 94-rated Taqareer. Amongst the 27 lots offered by the Castlebridge Consignment are two promising 3-year-olds trained by John and Thady Gosden in Rifleman and Zagato. The 95-rated Rifleman has shown smart form in his three starts this year whilst the regally-bred Zagato, a son of Frankel out of the dual Group 1 winner Izzi Top, earned an official rating of 86 following an easy 3 1/4-length win at Thirsk on his most recent start.

Commenting on the catalog for the Tattersalls August Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;

“The Tattersalls August Sale was introduced for the first time in 2020 in response to COVID-related circumstances, but the enthusiasm for the sale from both vendors and purchasers and an extraordinary clearance rate made it an easy decision to make it a permanent fixture. With the Tattersalls July Sale being held in more normal circumstances this year, it was natural that the catalogue size for the second edition of the August Sale would reduce but we are still delighted to catalogue 458 lots over two days that will appeal to a wide cross section of buyers, both domestic and further afield. We are also pleased that buyers from the key Middle Eastern markets will find it much easier to travel to the UK for the sale with the recent easing of restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers.”

The Tattersalls August Sale will take place from Tuesday, Aug. 31 to Wednesday, Sept. 1, and buyers unable to attend the sale in person will be able to bid via the Tattersalls Live Internet Bidding platform or telephone bidding through members of the Tattersalls team. Full details of the expanded bidding options can be found on the Tattersalls website.
