Entries open for this year's installment of the December foal sale
Tattersalls is now taking entries for the December Foal Sale, which this year takes place from November 28 to December 1.
At last year’s sale, 75 lots sold for at least 100,000 guineas with foals achieving six-figure sums on each of the four days of the sale. The 2017 December Foal Sale achieved a record average price of 44,027gns and a record-equalling median figure of 25,000gns. It was the fifth consecutive year that the sale recorded turnover in excess of 30 million guineas.
The number of foals who made 200,000gns or more increased from 16 in 2016 to 26 last year, headed by Willie and Elaine Carson’s 750,000gns sale of a Dubawi half-sister to Irish Derby and Dubai Sheema Classic hero Jack Hobbs. She was purchased by Godolphin, in whose colours Jack Hobbs raced.
Entries for this year’s sale are open until 31 August and can be made online at tattersalls.com. For more information contact Matthew Prior on +44 1638 665931 or firstname.lastname@example.org
