Kingman Colt Tops Book 2 Opener At Tattersalls October Sale

Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale got off to a strong start with five lots selling for 300,000 guineas (US$411,500) or more and a son of Kingman topping proceedings at 400,000 guineas (US$548,667).

The fireworks started early during the opening day of Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, with the Kingman colt out of the Rip Van Winkle mare Allez Y selling for 400,000 guineas (US$548,667) to Godolphin. The granddaughter of champion European 3-year-old filly l’Ancresse was bred by John Camilleri’s Fairway Thoroughbreds and consigned to the sale by Harry McCalmont’s Norelands Stud.

“He is a very nice horse, nice horses are easy to sell, and there is a strong market for nice horses,” admitted McCalmont. “The dam Allez Y is going to Australia, she belongs to John Camilleri, who bred Winx, and is in-foal to Lope De Vega on Southern Hemisphere time. I am delighted I have sold a good horse for him, very happy.”

The son of Kingman is one of seven yearlings on offer in Book 2 by the in-demand stallion and was knocked down to Anthony Stroud after he saw off the efforts of Irish trainer Joseph O’Brien.

“He is from Norelands who do a fantastic job, he is a well-balanced horse, moved well and we have had a lot of luck with Kingman – Palace Pier and Persian King. He will go to France to be trained by Andre Fabre,” reported Stroud.

Allez Y is a half-sister to the Group 3 winning Frankel colt Master of Reality, who is trained by Joseph O’Brien and is as short as 22/1 for this year’s Melbourne Cup.

Date With Destiny’s Daughter Makes 350,000 Guineas

Newsells Park Stud were celebrating when their daughter of first season sire Churchill out of George Washington’s only foal Date With Destiny sold for 350,000 guineas (US$480,209). The three-parts sister to the Group 3 winner Beautiful Morming, who realized 1.4 million guineas (US$1,920,806) at the Tattersalls December Mares Sale in 2018, was knocked down to Stroud Coleman’s Anthony Stroud after he saw off AMO Racing’s Kia Joorabchian stood alongside Robson Aguiar.

Julian Dollar of Newsells said: “When we bought Date With Destiny some people asked us if it was because of that rarity value, but it really wasn’t. We’d had some luck with the family before, and Flawly was one of the first mares we bought and she produced Best Name – she was one of the best mares we had early on in terms of sales and as a producer. We were very fond of the family so when the opportunity came to buy a bit more of it, we came in with her.

“We mated her to Galileo and she produced a lovely filly in Beautiful Morning, so we went to the son. The Churchill was an interesting mating, going back to something familiar but to put in a bit more speed and precocity, the mare herself was quite precocious.”

Newsells Park Stud purchased Date With Destiny at the 2011 Tattersalls December Mare Sale for 185,000 guineas via agent John Warren.

Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale continues at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 13.
