Tattersalls August sale returns for the third year to a one-day format instead of the two-day format of years past, but international demand for the proven UK and Irish racers is unlikely to have waned since the auction from last year.

Taking place at Park Paddocks from 9.30am on Wednesday, the sale offers a wide variety of choice for potential buyers with drafts like Godolphin, Juddmonte and Baroda Stud as well as trainers such as Sir Michael Stoute, George Boughey and Richard Hannon sending a large number of representatives.

Back on some lots offered for sale.

Lot 39 Grigadale
4 years bg Kodiac – Abbey Angel (Arcano)
Maunby House Stables
Already a winner in Ireland for Jarlath Fahey before moving to David and Nicola Barron’s yard, the Kodiac son was a close third on his stable debut at Ayr before being promoted to first when he suffered interference during his next race and added a clean win to Thirsk. earlier this month.

Half-brother to an American List winner in Lucky Girl and out of an Arcano half-sister to City Place striker Dusky Queen, he looks quite progressive at the start of the sale.

Lot 103 Quantico
3 Years BC Make Believe – Palladius (Sakhee’s Secret)
The Castlebridge Dispatch
This son of Make Believe made an eye-catching start to his racing career for Archie Watson when he met a three-length winner from a Chelmsford novice this month, a result bolstered by the exploits of second and third for good measure .

A 21,000 gns purchase by Blandford Bloodstock as a yearling from Miller Hill at Tattersalls Ascot, he is out of a Talking Hands winning half-sister, Listed Winkfield Stakes winner, and the Anglesey Stakes striker’s family , Air Of Distinction. He seems a promising and lightly run prospect for new connections.

Lot 120 Rather cloudy
3 years av Harzand – Clarinda (Montjeu)
Barton Sales
A hugely progressive stay this season for coach Gemma Tutty, picking up five rebound wins – including an easy four-length strike in a Class 3 event at Ascot – before taking fifth place last time out in the Lonsdale Cup.

With sire Harzand now taking over National Hunt duties at stud, there’s no reason his friendly son can’t play a dual role for new relationships. It remains to be seen where its limit lies and it should be a big hit with a few, while it is also linked to many winners.

Lot 187 Gold
Golden Horn 4 years bg – Receiver (Selkirk)
Park House Stables
Another batch with the potential for a dual purpose or overseas career. By Golden Horn, who is off to a good start with his early riders on the jumps and has also been in great shape on the flat lately, Auriferous has been a generally consistent guy on level and his recent efforts suggest he has plenty more to give in both spheres.

The four-year-old, from the family of Beresford Stakes winner Albert Hall, had a great run when he was last seen in a Newbury two-mile handicap and there should be room for further improvements.

Lot 227 Pulcheria
3yr Boyfriend Shamardal – Placidia (Sea The Stars)
The Godolphin project can always be counted on to cause a sensation among horses in training sales and this filly has a fine pedigree which should serve her well in the future.

The daughter of Shamardal – the broodmare sire of Awtaad, Hello Youmzain and Latrobe to name but a few – has placed in three of her eight starts, but what is more interesting is the fact that she is a half-sister to multi-stakes winner Soft Whisper, who added further sparkle to the page with success in the Queen Charlotte Fillies’ Stakes last month.

They are out of a Sea The Stars winning half-sister to multiple Group 2 winner and Saint-Cloud Grand Prix runner-up Policy Maker and the equally top class Pushkin. So she holds a lot of residual value as a broodmare prospect.

Lot 305 Mr McCann
3 years bc Kodiac – Copperbeech – (Red Ransom)
The Castlebridge Dispatch
The kind of horse that exemplifies this type of selling – a proven type but with the ability for more to come for others – Mr McCann was last seen landing a Class 2 handicap at Haydock to add to the three successes of former coach Tom Dascombe.

A regular sort at two, as well as finishing fourth behind Native Trail in the Group 2 Superlative Stakes at Newmarket, the colt was a respectable fourth behind Maljoom in the German 2,000 Guineas this year as well.

He is out of the third Prix Marcel Boussac Copperbeech and is a half-brother to two other winners, while his dam is in turn out of Italian Group 3 striker Aynthia and from the family of the Prix de Sandringham winner and of Maiden Tower, classified as Classic.
