Tattersalls October Book 2 Day-1: 275,000 Guineas Colt
A colt by High Chaparral topped Day-1 of the Tattersalls October Book 2 Sale in the UK when selling for 275,000 guineas. Knocked down to M.V.Magnier, who saw off strong competition from Peter Doyle, Paul Moroney, Antony Stroud & Dwayne Woods, the colt is out of the broodmare Middle Persia, a daughter of Cornerstone Stud shuttler Dalakhani. "He is a very good-looking horse and we've been lucky with the family," said Magnier. "High Chap has been doing well lately. We've seen plenty of nice horses here this week." The sale produced the highest priced Book 2 yearling since 2008.
