Tara Madgwick - Thursday October 14

Australian investors have been very active in the past two weeks at the UK’s premier yearling sales Tattersalls October Book 1 and 2 reflecting a growing sentiment that it’s getting harder to find yearlings in this country with pedigree suggesting scope to run a mile and beyond, but if you’re in the market for a sprinter Australian sales are awash with opportunity.

Nine of the 12 runners in the $15million The Everest were offered for sale as yearlings with the only contestants not going through a sale being Godolphin runner Trekking (Street Cry (IRE), Gerry Harvey’s homebred mare Libertini (I Am Invincible) and Jane Kaufmann’s remarkable homebred sprinter Eduardo (Host (Chil).
