Chriselliam Another Group 1 Winning Tattersalls October Yearling
Tattersalls sold two-year-olds continued their 2013 run of success as the Charlie Hills-trained CHRISELLIAM belied her extravagant odds with an impressive win in the Group 1 Shadwell Fillies' Mile. Purchased for 40,000 guineas by bloodstock agent Alastair Donald of SackvilleDonald, CHRISELLIAM led home a Tattersalls October 1 - 2 with 50,000 guineas Group 1 winner RIZEENA finishing second.
Trained by Charlie Hills for owners Willie Carson, Chris Wright and Emily Asprey, CHRISELLIAM came from last to first under jockey Richard Hughes prompting her trainer to suggest next year's 1,000 Guineas as the logical target for next spring.
By Darley stallion IFFRAAJ, CHRISELLIAM was bred and consigned at Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale by Ballylinch Stud who have a LOPE DE VEGA half-sister catalogued as lot 352 at Book 1 of the forthcoming Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.
