18 Frankel Yearlings in Tattersalls Sale

in all, 513 cataloged in Book 1 of Tattersalls October yearling sale.

Tattersalls has cataloged 513 lots, including 18 from the first crop of champion Frankel, in Book 1 of the October yearling sale in Newmarket, England, Oct. 6-8.

The number of offspring from the first crop of Frankel, the two-time Cartier Horse of the Year in Europe, is more than the number of yearlings consigned to all other sales combined, according to a release.

"The next chapter of the Frankel legend is set to begin and we are delighted to have 18 outstanding yearlings from his first crop in Europe," Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said. "They are an impressive bunch, both physically and on pedigree, with 15 of them either out of group- and listed-winning mares or half brothers of sisters to group and listed winners."

The catalog also includes full or half brothers and sisters to 37 group I and classic winners and 248 group/listed winners.

According to Tattersalls, all 20 of this year's active leading sires in England and Ireland have yearlings in the sale, including half brothers Galileo and Sea The Stars, as well as Invincible Spirit, Exceed and Excel, and Oasis Dream.

U.S.-based stallions with offspring cataloged are Distorted Humor , Elusive Quality , Exchange Rate, Kitten's Joy , Lemon Drop Kid , Scat Daddy, Smart Strike, Street Cry, and War Front .
