Tattersalls Ireland September catalogue out

TATTERSALLS Ireland has catalogued 551 lots for their September Yearling Sale, which takes place on September 23-24.

The catalogue is nine per cent larger than last year's renewal when 504 lots were entered.

A total of 97 per cent of this year's catalogued lots are eligible for the Racing Post Yearling Bonus while all lots are eligible for the €150,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Stakes at Fairyhouse next September, for which the owners' total race entry costs are only €1,000.


The sale has been advertised to excellent effect this season, with the likes of Vintage Stakes winner Xtension, Richmond Stakes winner Dick Turpin and this week's Roses Stakes winner, the ultra-tough Star Rover, among those to have passed through the ring at last year's renewal.

Among the eye-catching lots on offer this time around is a Dubawi colt out of the outstanding Kartajana, a Celtic Swing half-sister to last season's classy two-year-old Firth Of Fifth and a brother to 1,000 Guineas third Vista Bella.

"The two Glorious Goodwood Group 2-winning two-year-olds Xtension and Dick Turpin demonstrate the combination of quality and value for money that buyers have come to associate with the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale and this year's catalogue looks to be stronger than ever," said George Mernagh, managing director of Tattersalls Ireland.

"In addition we have revitalised the €150,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Stakes making it even more attractive to owners than ever, and combined with the £10,000 Racing Post Yearling Bonus, there have never been more incentives for buyers to come to the September Yearling Sale."

As always Irish Thoroughbred Marketing will continue to reimburse overseas purchasers their flight costs.
