IT has been a while since Rathasker Stud’s Clodovil sired his previous Group 1 winners, Nahoodh in the Falmouth Stakes and Moriarty in South Africa, but his third came on Sunday when bargain yearling Tiger Tanaka, sold for €6,500 at the Tattersalls Ireland September Sale, won for the sixth time this year, annexing the Prix Marcel Boussac.

She was previously a Group 3 winner at Deauville and her only defeat in seven outings saw her placed in the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin. With winnings of over €200,000 she is proving to be a contender for bargain of the year.
