Book 3 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale closed with turnover second only to last year's record levels and an improved clearance rate of above 80 percent, something that has been a feature of all three books of the October Yearling Sale to date.
Three lots realized 50,000 guineas (US $68,593) or more on the final day, taking the total number across Book 3 to 27, up from twenty at this sale last year.
The top price on the second day of Book 3 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale was 60,000 guineas ($82,312) for a Zoffany filly out of the listed Height Of Fashion Stakes winner Cosmodrome.
The Voute Sales consigned filly was purchased by BBA Ireland's Richard Fitzsimons and is out of a sister to the listed winner Splashdown, dam of the Group 3 Solario Stakes winner Aktamantay.
“She might go breezing,” said Fitzsimons. “She's a big strong filly and there's a lot going on in the family – there are Dubawis and Kingmans coming through under the second dam, so she'll always have some residual value.
Book 4 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale starts Saturday, Oct. 20 with 123 lots catalogued.
