TATTERSALLS OCTOBER YEARLING SALE BOOK 1

Tattersalls’ Book 1 October Yearling Sale finished in Newmarket last night with figures marginally down on 2008. The final session’s 116,138gns average dropped by 11 percent and the 76,500gns median fell by 15 percent. The day - and sale - were topped by a 700,000gns Oasis Dream (GB) colt out of Maganda (Ire) (Sadler’s Wells). Marcus Tregoning and Kazakhstani owner Nurlan Bizakov made a bold play for the colt, but it was Coolmore boss John Magnier who signed the buyer’s ticket after seeing off Sir Robert Ogden.

The colt, selling as hip 545 from John Deer’s Oakgrove Stud in Wales, had been bought in utero by agent Amanda Skiffington for 320,000gns at the 2007 December Sale.

“I’d imagine he’ll be going to Ballydoyle and race for the usual partnership,” said Magnier. “Paul Shanahan and Demi O’Byrne liked the horse, and that was it really.”

Magnier had earlier outbid BBA Ireland agent Eamonn Reilly, standing withJim Bolger, for a 600,000gns Galileo (Ire) colt sold from Michael O’Flynn’s Co Cork-based Rockfield Farm. The yearling, hip 499, was out of G1 Irish Oaks and G1 Irish 1000 Guineas second Kitza (Ire) (Danehill), who had been bought for 550,000gns at the 2006 December Sale. It was the second highest price on the day.
