2017 Tattersalls October Yearlings - Book 3

Highlights: Norman Williamson goes to 42,000gns to buy 1746 a Havana Gold colt selling on behalf of breeder Glebe Farm Stud. "The sire has been going very well, I have another at home by him - I like them," said Williamson. "He will be back to breeze, he's a good-walking sort with a bit of scope. The mare has proven herself too."Reyamour (Azamour) has just had two runners to date, but her second foal, a filly by Canford Cliffs, Tata Pila has picked up Listed placed form in Italy.

Lot 1773: progeny by Farhh continues to appeal to buyers... Houghton Bloodstock's colt out of She Wolf, a half-sister to the Irish 1,000 Guineas-placed Oh Goodness Me, sells for 40,000gns to Stroud Coleman Bloodstock. It is the further family of the dual champion filly Lemon Souffle
