AN AWTAAD half-sister to Champion Racemare Taghrooda is one of the star lots of an exciting Tattersalls February Sale catalogue, which is now online. The 2yo filly is part of a strong draft offered by New England Stud on behalf of Shadwell during the two day sale which begins on Thursday, 3 February at Park Paddocks.

A total of 486 horses have been included in the sale which will be preceded by the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (TBA) Stallion Parade, which takes place at Park Paddocks prior to the sale commencing on 3 February. A mixture of weanlings, juveniles, horses in training and broodmares have been assembled with a significant proportion of the catalogue consisting of Shadwell stock due to the operation’s ongoing downsizing.

Barton Sales has the largest draft in the catalogue with 57 horses, 40 of them are on behalf of Shadwell, comprising 30 colts and geldings in and out of training and ten fillies. They include Hamaayel, a 3yo Tamayuz sister to Grade 1 EP Taylor Stakes winner Blond Me. New England Stud offers ten juveniles of exceptional pedigrees for Shadwell, headed by the half-sister to Taghrooda.

The draft also includes a Sea The Stars colt out of Blandford Stakes winner and Oaks second Tarfasha. A colt from the first crop of Cracksman out of Sortita, a sister to Group One winners Schiaparelli, Samum and Salve Regina and to the dam of Sea The Moon is another bound to attract plenty of interest.

Shadwell themselves will offer two broodmares and eight weanlings, including colts from the first crops of Group One winners Too Darn Hot and Blue Point. The Godolphin draft of 47 includes New Style, a Street Cry half-sister to Dream Ahead and to the dam of Group One winner Fairyland, in foal to Kodiac, sire of Cheveley Park winner Heaven’s Angel.

A Henrythenavigator half-sister to Oaks winner Qualify, in foal to Siyouni, is another potentially exciting Godolphin entry.
