(Edited Tattersalls press release)

A trio of grade/group I winners – Lahaleeb, Eva’s Request, and Lush Lashes -- are among the 981 horses in the Tattersalls December mare sale catalog. The auction will be held Nov. 30-Dec. 3 in England.

Lahaleeb recently captured the E.P. Taylor Stakes (Can-IT) at Woodbine. Eva’s Request scored in the Premio Lydia Tesio (Ity-I) in Rome. And Lush Lashes was a three-time group I winner in 2008.

Also in the sale are mares in foal to such sires as Cape Cross, Dalakhani, Danehill Dancer, Dansili, High Chaparral, Montjeu, Oasis Dream, and Pivotal along with the only mare in foal to Galileo to be offered in Europe this year.

“The December mare sale is the culmination of the two-week Tattersalls December sale and in many ways the climax of the European sales season,” said Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony. “It is a quality catalog which looks set to attract the customary global cast of buyers who make the sale such a unique event in the sales calendar. Mares purchased at past Tattersalls December sales have won classic and group I races on every continent in the world in 2009, and it is this sort of success year after year that makes the sale the premier fixture of its type in Europe.”

The Tattersalls December mare sale catalog is available directly from Tattersalls and all Tattersalls overseas representatives. It can be viewed online at www.tattersalls.com.

The mare sale is preceded by the Tattersalls December yearling auction Nov. 23 and the four-day December foal sale, which is scheduled for Nov. 25-28.
