There are a total of 446 lots catalogued for the first sale of 2018. These lots consist of some top quality fillies, broodmares, colts, geldings, yearlings and two-year olds. Some hail from the likes of Godolphin, Juddmonte Farms and Shadwell Estates; a selection of some of the world’s most famous owner breeders.
The majority of lots are made up by colts and geldings and out of these, the one to watch out for is Willie John. This three-year-old has been trained by William Haggas and achieved an impressive win in his only start as a two-year-old. He has been entered into the English and Irish Derbies and being Timeform rated 87p, he is certainly one to watch.
Our Tattersalls Tour will take you right to the heart of the action with one of our expert tour guides to give you all the insider’s advice. Learn what the top buyers are looking out for when bidding and brush shoulders with some of the world’s most famous owners and trainers as you soak up the buzz inside the legendary sales ring.
The excitement doesn’t just stop at the sales. This amazing tour will also take you behind the scenes at the racing stables of Group 1 winning trainer, Sir Michael Stoute!
After watching the thoroughbreds exercising on Newmarket’s legendary Warren Hill, you will be taken to find out what it takes to train a champion at the home of one of the most famous trainers in the sport!
