TWO weeks of sales at Newmarket kicks off on Monday with the one-day December Yearling Sale, an auction which can always be relied upon to throw up a few big prices. Eight yearlings made six-figure sums at last year’s sale, on a day when the average price was 35,000gns.
Monday’s renewal has 186 lots catalogued and it features several own or half-siblings to Group 1 winners, including the Sea The Stars own-sister to Group 1 Australian Cup winner Fifty Stars, and the Mizzen Mast own-brother to Poule d’Essai des Pouliches (French 1000 Guineas) and Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Flotilla.
They are joined by the Tamayuz half-brother to Group 1 Prix Jean Prat winner Laws Of Indices, the Mastercraftsman half-brother to Group 1 Flying Five winner Romantic Proposal and half-sisters to the Group 1 Preis der Diana (German Oaks) winner Well Timed and Group 1 Sydney Cup winner Selino, by Magna Grecia and Sea The Moon respectively.
In total there are own or half-brothers and sisters to 41 group and listed winners catalogued, and 30 yearlings out of group- and listed-winning dams. Highlights include the regally bred daughter of Dubawi and 1000 Guineas winner Miss France and a colt by Time Test out of dual Grade 1 winner and multiple group race and listed producer Jostle.
Last year’s leading consignor Shadwell Estates will again offer a high quality consignment of eight yearlings led by the Dubawi colt out of Group 2 Rockfel Stakes runner up Fadhayyil, already the dam of Group 2 winner Turaath, and well-bred fillies by Dark Angel, Frankel, Kingman, Lope De Vega, Sea The Stars and Siyouni.
