Crown of the Desert: Having a nice graduate

Andrew Reddington

The catalogues for volumes 2, 3 and 4 of the Tattersalls October Yearlings Auction 2022 have been published online.

Book 2 of 821 yearlings will take place from Monday 10th October to Wednesday 12th October.

Book 3, with 642 pigeons cataloged, will take place on Thursday and Friday, October 13th to 14th, while Book 4 also has 85 yearlings for sale on the morning of Saturday, October 15th.

The october 2022 book 2 star leader is the derby champion desert crown, which was bought at auction in 2020 for 280,000 gns.

However, he faces stiff competition as the number one graduate to buy State Of Rest from 60,000gns, and he has won four Group/First Class races in his last five races, including the Prince of Wales Championship at the Royal Turf Club, And conceivably he could add to that this Sunday at Prix Jacques le Marois.

Hong Kong Group 1 champion Romance Warriors, German 2,000 Guineas champion Maljoom and Richmond Stakes champion Royal Scots are other purchases for this October’s Book 2, which light up racetracks around the world.

The 2022 catalogue features an impressive 181 groups and listed winners’ full brothers or half-siblings, including Group 1 Prix de Royallieu winner Loving Dream’s Sea The Stars half-brother, Melbourne Cup winner Conservationist Camelot half-brother, Highland Reel half-brother, half-brother of six-time Group 1 winner Laurens and this year’s Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup winner Alenquer, by The Great Gatsby 》

This season’s group winner two year olds The Ridler and Lakota Sioux, winner of the Norfolk and Sweet Solera Stakes respectively, both have siblings. National Stud entrusted the Time Test half-brother to The Riderl, while Galbertstown Stables entrusted the Blue Point half-brother to Lakota Sioux.

There are also 132 sons and daughters of Group and Listed Champion Mares, including Siyouni ponies from Champion Ribbons and Galileo ponies from Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes Champion Tiggy Wiggy.

Mares on offer include No Nay Never daughter of Class 1 Champion Sophie P, Kingman daughter of Class 1 Queensland Oaks Champion Winning Ways and first season daughter of Champion Waldgeist of Class 1 Dynaforce.

All yearlings in volumes 3 and 4 of the October Yearlings auction are eligible for the £150,000 Tattersalls October auction.

Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: “There is no better catalog ad than a Derby winner for sale, Desert Crown has been a great ambassador for the October Book 2, as has 60,000 purchases and four Group 1 winners resting.

“Both perfectly illustrate the quality and value of the second week of the Tattersalls October Yearlings Auction and why it is the focus of so many yearling buyers from all over Europe and further afield.

“The need for a place has allowed us to collect an excellent catalogue showing so many of the best British and Irish breeding yearlings and will cater to all segments of the market.”
