MARGOT DID, purchased for just 10,000 guineas at last year’s Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up, was the highlight of a Tattersalls clean-sweep on the penultimate day of the 2011 York Ebor meeting, with an emphatic win in the Group 1 Coolmore Nunthorpe. The Mike Bell trained 3 year old daughter of EXCEED AND EXCEL was purchased by Richard Frisby from Liam Mcateer’s Woodtown House Stud on behalf of owners Tim Redman and Peter Philips. The 10,000 guineas bargain – buy has now taken her career earnings past £250,000.

MARGOT DID’s spectacular win followed the richly deserved win of another Tattersalls Breeze Up purchase CASPAR NETSCHER in the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes. CASPAR NETSCHER was purchased for 65,000 guineas by bloodstock agent Tom Malone and trainer Alan McCabe at this year’s Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up having been purchased by her consignor Katie Walsh for 25,000 guineas at Book 2 of last year’s Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. The son of DUTCH ART was bred by Meon Valley Stud which has nine yearlings catalogued for Book 1 of the forthcoming Tattersalls October Yearling Sale and a further eight in Book 2.

Catalogues for Books 1,2 and 3 of the 2011 Tattersalls October Yearlings Sales are out now and can also be viewed online at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, featuring the Tattersalls Millions, takes place October 5th – 7th.
