Tattersalls Oct Day-1: 2.6 Million For Dubawi Colt
A colt by Dubawi topped a strong opening day of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale and became the highest priced yearling in the world this year when selling for 2.6 million guineas on Tuesday. A total of 136 lots sold for a total of 31,240,000 guineas at an average of 229,706 guineas and a median of 145,000 guineas. A total of 17 lots sold for 500,000 guineas or more. The highlight of a stellar start to Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale was the Dubawi colt out of Gr2 Coronation Stakes winner Fallen For You who became the highest priced yearling sold in the world this year. Catalogued as Lot 39, the well-related colt attracted a wide range of international interest that included Australian-based Sun International’s David O’Callaghan, Qatar Bloodstock’s David Redvers, South African owner Markus Jooste and local trainer Roger Varian but it was John Ferguson who won the day with a final bid of 2.6 million guineas.
