FULL brothers to champion Ghaiyyath and Arc winner Waldgeist are among the dazzling number of blueblooded yearlings in the catalogue for Book 1 of the 2022 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.

All 549 yearlings catalogued are eligible for the £20,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus scheme, which recently celebrated its 286th winner and has paid out £6,845,000 in bonus prize money to date.

This year’s Derby winner Desert Crown, 1000 Guineas winner Cachet, July Cup winner Alcohol Free, Commonwealth Cup winner Perfect Power and Coronation Stakes winner Inspiral are among the stars with siblings catalogued.

The largest consignment comes from last year’s sale-topping Newsells Park Stud who will offer a draft of 30 yearlings, followed by Baroda Stud and Highclere Stud who both have 24 lots catalogued.
Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: “Even by its customary lofty standards the catalogue for Book 1 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.”
