Plum Galileo offerings and half-sister to Gilt Edge Girl head July Sale lots

Gilt Edge Girl: her Fastnet Rock half-sister Novel Concept will be offered in foal to Footstepsinthesand
1 of 1

The headline acts among the 918 lots catalogued for next month's three-day July Sale are the already announced Cloth Of Cloud, in foal to Galileo, and six yearling fillies by Coolmore's perennial champion sire. 

Cloth Of Cloud, a daughter of the late Captain Al, became champion South African filly in 2016 following her length success in the Grade 1 SA Nursery. 

A half-sister to Grade 1 winner Silver Mountain, she hails from the family of Santa Anita and Hollywood Oaks heroine Hidden Light and Breeders' Cup Mile scorer Artie Schiller. 

Embattled businessman Markus Jooste previously part-owned Cloth Of Cloud and he is continuing to disperse his stock after allegations of accountancy fraud emerged in 2017. 

The six yearling fillies include a half-sister to Lowther Stakes winner Besharah who will be consigned by the Castlebridge Consignment alongside Cloth Of Cloud. 

Away from the top-class offerings of Galileo, the Castlebridge Consignment will also offer the Group 3-winning mare Czabo in foal to Ballylinch Stud's crack young sire Lope De Vega and Novel Concept, a Fastnet Rock half-sister to Group 1 heroine Gilt Edge Girl. 

Heavyweights Godolphin, Juddmonte and Shadwell have a combined 133 lots catalogued between them and Group 2 winners Arod and Across The Stars are among the horses in training who are also set to go under the hammer. 

Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: "To have catalogued six beautifully bred yearling fillies by the great Galileo adds a rare and exciting dimension to this year’s Tattersalls July Sale and also to have a young Grade 1 winner in foal to Galileo further enhances the reputation of the July Sale as Europe’s premier midsummer sale.

"Year after year the July Sale is the source of Group 1 producers and performers on the global stage and the combination of fillies and mares from outstanding international families and an abundance of progressive horses in training is a formula which annually attracts buyers from all corners of the world."
