Sibling to George Washington tops day one of Tattersalls sale

A half brother to Europe's leading miler, George Washington, proved the pick when Part 1 of Tattersalls October yearling sale opened in Newmarket on Tuesday..........................

After the first session of this four-day sale, Tattersalls produced another solid set of figures, even if the occasion lacked the sparkle normally associated with Europe's major yearling auction.

Overall, Tattersalls reported the sale of 107 of 142 yearlings for gross receipts of $26,021,678—down about 7% from last year's opening day—with an average price of $243,123 and a median price of $158,560, about 19% higher than last year's first-day median of $133,785.

Other high-priced lots included a $1,189,200 filly by Dalakhani, who was bought by Charlie Gordon-Watson on behalf of Saeed Suhail, owner of British classic winners King's Best and Kris Kin.

Gordon-Watson and Suhail later bought a son of first-crop sire Oasis Dream from Ashtown House Stud. A bid of $872,080 was enough to secure the colt, making a tidy profit for the colt's vendors, who paid $267,570 for him as a foal.
