The international appeal of Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale is traditionally enhanced by a strong contingent of overseas based sires and leading American sires KITTEN’S JOY and MEDAGLIA D’ORO feature, alongside promising young stallions AMERICAN PHAROAH and CARAVAGGIO and their French counterparts ALMANZOR, GALIWAY and ZARAK.

The largest consignment comes from last year’s sale topping Newsells Park Stud who will offer an outstanding team of 30 yearlings, followed by Baroda Stud and Highclere Stud who both have 24 lots catalogued.

Commenting on the catalogue for Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;

“Even by its customary lofty standards the catalogue for Book 1 of the 2022 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale looks to be exceptional. This year’s October Book 1 features own or half brothers and sisters to more than 60 Classic and Group 1 winners and more than a third of the 549 yearlings catalogued are by current European top 10 sires.

“The consistent quality of October Book 1 is reflected in yet another outstanding year for Book 1 graduates on racecourses throughout the world headed in Europe by Classic winners MAGICAL LAGOON and NATIVE TRAIL and further afield, by American Grade 1 winners IN ITALIAN and MCKULICK.

“Every October Book 1 yearling will again be eligible for the hugely popular £20,000 October Book 1 Bonus Scheme, which has already rewarded 286 winners with almost £7,000,000 in bonus prize money and ensures that buyers at Europe’s premier yearling sale continue to be rewarded with unprecedented prize money."
