Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: “Bradsell’s victory in the group 1 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot has been the highlight of an exceptional year for the Tattersalls Somerville Yearling Sale. The sale’s attention to conformation and precocity has been emphasized by the impressive number of black-type performers in the sale’s short history as well as two successive Weatherbys Super Sprint winners. 

“The quality of this year’s catalog has taken another step forward, and combined with the international success of its graduates, underlines the Tattersalls Somerville Yearling Sale’s position as Europe’s most progressive yearling sale.”

All yearlings cataloged in the Tattersalls Somerville Yearling Sale are eligible for the £100,000 Tattersalls Somerville Auction Stakes as well as the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes held five weeks later. There are also 77 fillies cataloged who are registered for the Great British Bonus scheme and eligible to win up to £20,000 in bonus prize money per qualifying race.
