Tattersalls Purchases Dominate Final Day At Royal Ascot
THE TIN MAN led a spectacular Tattersalls dominated final day of Royal Ascot with a magnificent sprinting display in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes. Trained in Newmarket by James Fanshawe, the five year old son of EQUIANO produced a devastating turn of foot to see off a top class international field in the final Group 1 contest of the five day Royal Meeting. Purchased for 80,000 guineas at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale by bloodstock agent Anthony Stroud, THE TIN MAN is now the winner of seven races, including two Group 1 contests and more than £850,000 for his owners the Fred Archer Syndicate.
One race earlier the regally bred IDAHO made it a family double when winning the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes, three days after his older brother HIGHLAND REEL landed the Group 1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes for the formidable Ballydoyle team. IDAHO was purchased for 750,000 guineas at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale by MV Magnier from Camas Park Stud a year after the same connections bought HIGHLAND REEL at Europe’s premier yearling sale for 460,000 guineas through bloodstock agent John Warren.
On a day which saw three Northern trained winners at the Royal Meeting, SNOANO, trained by Tim Easterby at his Habton Grange Stables in Malton, landed the Listed Wolferton Handicap for owner Martyn Macleod. The gelded son of NAYEF, bred by Willie Carson at his Minster Stud, was originally purchased for 36,000 guineas at the Tattersalls December Foal Sale and subsequently bought by Tim Easterby and Stroud/Coleman Bloodstock for 21,000 guineas at the 2015 Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale.
Completing the Tattersalls sold quartet was Wokingham Stakes winner OUT DO, another shrewd purchase from the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale. Bought as a yearling at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale by bloodstock agent Charlie Gordon - Watson from Voute Sales, the gelded son of EXCEED AND EXCEL was subsequently snapped up for 18,000 guineas by his current trainer David O’Meara.
