Gearing up for the yearling sales

09/08/11 - Seven Overbury graduates set to head for Doncaster and Newmarket

A busy yearling sales season is fast approaching and the team from Overbury Stud will be engaged at both Doncaster and Newmarket with seven yearlings to go under the hammer.

At the DBS Premier Sale, we sell a racy filly by one of the hottest young sires of the moment, Exceed And Excel. Lot 416 is out of Spanish Quest, by Rainbow Quest, and will be consigned for us by Voute Sales.

Spanish Quest has already produced the French two-year-old winner Ruby Day and her two-year-old by Exceed And Excel, Supreme Quest, trained by Roger Charlton, finished runner-up in a maiden in May.

At the following week’s St Leger Festival Sale we consign a Compton Place filly and two colts by Bertolini.

Out of the American winner Blushing Sunrise, by Cox’s Ridge, the Compton Place filly (lot 19) is a half-sister to US stakes winner Sharp Needle.

Three lots later comes the Bertolini colt out of Bonnie Belle, an Imperial Dancer half-sister to Chester Vase winner Red Lancer. The colt’s pedigree boasts plenty of speed, however, with the dual Group 1-winning sprinter Abergwaun as his third dam.

Last of the Doncaster horses to sell is another Bertolini colt, this one being the third foal of two-year-old winner Riva Royale, by Royal Applause. Her first foal, Ask Frank, won at two and has garnered plenty of black type overseas, including a fourth-place finish in the G1 Hong Kong Sprint.

Book 2 of Tattersalls’ October Sale sees a Bahamian Bounty half-brother to the talented Firebeam take to the ring. The three-year-old has had five runs to date for Highclere Thoroughbred Racing and William Haggas, winning twice and finishing in the money on every other start.

Two fillies are headed to Book 3, the first by Zamindar out of Shine Like A Star from the family of the top-class miler Fly To The Stars, and the second a daughter of Excellent Art out of the winning Desert King mare Princess Sabaah.
