Proclamation’s first crop continues to win support 15/10/09

Another batch of Proclamation’s first yearlings were put to the commercial test at Tattersalls this week and passed with flying colours. All six in Book 2 sold for an average of 22,900gns – more than five times his covering fee in 2007.

Sheikh Hamdan’s racing and bloodstock manager Angus Gold secured the highest priced of these when going to 60,000gns for a colt out of the Danehill mare Gleam Of Light, who has already produced the dual Group Two winner Arabian Gleam.

Gill Richardson, the regular buyer for trainer Mick Channon, had already bought a Proclamation filly at Doncaster and she came back for another filly at Tattersalls, a daughter of Zachera, a Zamindar half-sister to G1-winning sprinter Sakhee’s Secret. Consigned by Templeton Stud, the April-foaled filly was knocked down for 27,000gns.

Trainer Clive Cox has enjoyed a really successful season and his team for next year will include a Proclamation half-brother to Flying Childers Stakes winner Godfrey Street from the Whitsbury Stud consignment. Out of the Caerleon mare Tahara, the colt fetched 22,000gns.

Aidan Kennedy and David Redvers both went to 10,000gns for colts by Proclamation while Norfolk-based Whitwell Bloodstock bought a colt out of Amiata, who will join the Proclamation filly bought at last December’s foal sale.

Bertolini had five yearlings sell during Book 2 for an average of 19, 400gns. With his consistent stream of two-year-old winners, it was no surprise that trainers were keen to buy his stock and Michael Jarvis and David Simcock bought colts for 26,000gns and 13,000gns respectively while John Berry secured Langton Stud’s daughter of Lady Donatella for 22,000gns.

Peter Doyle, the successful agent for Richard Hannon’s stable, was another to appreciate Bertolini’s good strike rate, paying 16,000gns for a filly out of the multiple-winning Miswaki mare Galapagar. Rabbah Bloodstock took a fancy to the Tally-Ho Stud-consigned colt out of Raze (Halling),  who fetched 26,000gns.

A Bertolini filly out of Film Buff had been sold to Richard Frisby the previous week for 37,000gns but Book 1 honours went to Zafeen, whose colt out of Miss Prim, and thus a half-brother to the talented sprinter Amour Propre, sold to Shadwell for 70,000.
