A FILLY by Darley first-season-sire Dubawi from the oustanding family of Meon Valley Stud matriarch Reprocolor (257) became the second most expensive yearling of the Tattersalls October yearling sale so far when knocked down to John Ferguson for 460,000gns.

Lancashire Oaks winner Reprocolor, who died last year, is the filly's third dam. She founded an empire at Meon Valley Stud, and is theancestress of Irish Oaks heroine Colorspin, dual Ascot Gold Cup winner Kayf Tara and Group 2 scorer Stagecraft.

Meon Valley Stud consigned the yearling, who is a half-sister to Queen's Vase runner-up Yankee Doodle and Listed-placed Fontana Amorosa.

Luke Lillingston, standing with Olivia Hoare, an owner with Michael Bell, was underbidder.
