Tattersalls July Sale Final ummary

New benchmarks for turnover, average and median were set at the 2017 renewal of the three-day Tattersalls July Sale.

The final session saw a total of 178 lots realise 4,161,300 guineas and featured the sale-topping price of 330,000 guineas.

The three-day sale totals saw 574 lots sell for 14,691,700 guineas, at an average of 25,595 guineas and a median of 12,000 guineas. The turnover was up 19% on the 2016 renewal, whilst the average and median rose 19% and 20% to new records.

The Godolphin consigned filly Time Check realised 300,000 guineas on the opening day but that figure was usurped during the last session on Friday evening when the Galileo filly Adanta Sana was knocked down to Saeed Manana for 330,000 guineas.

Bloodstock agents Andrew Williams and Cathy Grassick looked to have won the battle to secure the daughter of the Australian Group winner Milanova ut Manana entered the fray late to disappoint the pair.

She will be sent back into training with trainer James Tate.

"We will try and win a race with her, and then she will join Saeed's broodmare band,” Tate said.

Asanta Sana is out of the Danehill mare Milanova a G3 winner and G1 placed in Australia and dam of the G3 winner Pretty Perfect and a half-sister to the dual G1 winner andf sire Holy Roman Emperor.

* JEWEL House, a winning son of Dubawi, topped the second day of the Tattersalls July Sale when purchased by Qatar-based trainer Ibrahim Al-Malki for 215,000 guineas from the Juddmonte Farms draft.

The three-year-old colt is out of the Dansili mare Arizona Jewel, a winning sister to G2 Ribblesdale Stakes winner Riposte.

Arizona Jewel is also a half-sister to dual G1 winner Powerscourt (Sadler’s Wells), G3 winner Last Train (Rail Link) and Listed winner Kind (Danehill), dam of the champion Frankel (Galileo).

Al-Malki has a stable of 70 thoroughbreds and Arabians and finished fourth in the most recent Qatari trainers' championship.

"He'll ship to Qatar and if all goes well he could be one for the Qatar Derby. He's very well bred and we like the fact he's by Dubawi. One day he could stand as a stallion in Qatar." Al-Malki said.

Tattersalls reported significant gains in all key indicators, with turnover for the day standing at 3,500,900 guineas up a massive 43 per cent on last year’s corresponding session.

The average was up by 37 per cent to 20,475 guineas and the median leapt by 79 per cent from 7,000gns to 12,500 guineas, while the clearance rate was a healthy 96 per cent.
