Top Ten Sales At The October Yearling Sales 2021 Book One

1: Sea The Stars x Best Terms 

The Chesnut filly was purchased by Godolphin for 1,500,000. Dam Best Terms was a lovely 2yo for trainer Richard Hannon Senior. The speedster won her first four races including the Group 2 Lowther Stakes in 2011. Offspring include full-brother Star Terms who also made an impact as a 2yo winning twice and running a stormer to finish third in the Group 1 Criterium des Pouliches at Longchamp. 

2: Dubawi x Waldlerche 

The Chesnut filly was purchased for 1,250,000 gns by Al Shira'aa Farms. Dam Waldlerche only had four runs but won the Group 3 Prix Penelope at Saint-Cloud for trainer Andre Fabre. A half-sister to the Group 1 Arc de Triomphe winner Waldgeist also trained by Fabre who now stands stud at Ballylinch Ireland. Looks one to keep an eye out for and comes from an excellent family. 

3: Sea The Stars x So Mi Dar 

The bay colt was purchased for 1,200,000 gns by C Gordon-Watson Bloodstock / Woodford Racing. Dam So Mi Dar had an excellent career for John Gosden winning first time up in 2015 before going on to win the Group 3 Musidora Stakes and running with credit in top company. 

4: Galileo x Anthem Alexander 

The bay colt was purchased for 1,100,000 gns by Mr Magnier. Dam Anthem Alexander was a lovely 2yo for trainer Edward Lynam winning the Queen Mary Stakes. Anthem Alexander had a few ding dong battles with good old Tiggy Wiggy in 2014 coming out on top once. Offspring include Anthem National trained by Simon and Ed Crisford who won a novice last year and looks one to follow. 

5: Age Of Kings  

The bay colt is first foal for dam Turret Rocks and was purchased for 1,100,000 gns by Mr Magnier & White Birch who is trained by Aidan O'Brien. Dam was a lovely filly for Jim Bolger winning on her debut back in 2015, won the Group 2 May Hill Stakes in 2015 and the Group 3 Meld Stakes in 2018. 

6: No Nay Never x Alta Anna 

The bay filly was purchased for 925,000 gns by Al Shira'aa Farms. Dam Alta Anna was unraced. Looks a good source of winners with the dam producing five winning offspring out of six all by Galileo. I did put Bolshoi Ballet up as a horse to follow before making his debut and he's done pretty good winning a couple of group 3s, pretty sure this will make it six out of seven winners for dam Alta Anna. 

7: Frankel x Qushchi 

The bay colt was purchased for 925,000 gns by Mr Magnier and is in training with Aidan O'Brien. Dam Qushchi was a nice type for William Jarvis until moving to America. Won a Newmarket maiden at 2 before running in decent company over longer trips. Half-brother to the David Simcock trained Mrs Sippy, another who went to America after putting up a few nice performances. Mrs Sippy won second time out as a 2yo. 

8: HIGH HONOUR (Frankel x As Good As Gold)  

This bay colt was purchased for 900,000 gns by Godolphin. Dam was an average type for Aidan O'Brien but picked up a few races when moving to Richard Fahey. Full-brother to Charlie Appleby's Stormy Ocean who won in January and looks a 3yo to follow. 

9: No Nay Never x Lady Ederle 

The bay filly was purchased for 825,000 gns by Cheveley Park Stud. Dam Lady Ederle was placed once in America. Offspring Arizona and Nay Lady Nay. Arizona won the Coventry Stakes for Aidan O'Brien and Nay Lady Nay won 2/2 races as a 2yo. 

10: Galileo x Quiet Oasis 

The bay filly was purchased for 800,000 gns by agent A C Elliott. Dam won one race at Kempton before moving to America winning a couple of races. Offspring include Aidan O'Brien's Lancaster House who won his first three races, also won a Group 3 as a 4-year-old. Thanks for reading.
