Canford Cliffs Popularity to the Fore Again at Tatts. AUS$500,000 Colt.

The strong demand for first crop members of World Champion Miler Canford Cliffs has continued at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale in Newmarket, England. Two days in to the Book 1 session of Europe’s biggest yearling sale and there have been some wonderful results for the five time Group One winner.

Topping the bill at 270,000gns (Aus$518,000) was a magnificent bay colt from the well related young Galileo mare Bright Sapphire. This colt (pictured) was purchased by Amanda Skiffington who in recent times has purchased the multiple Group One winner Toronado (2013 Sussex Stakes and 2014 Queen Anne Stakes) amongst others as yearlings.

MV Magnier made another purchase of a quality Canford Cliffs yearling when parting with 150,000gns (Aus$287,000) for the colt from Group Three winner Welsh Diva and Dermot Farrington also made another Canford Cliffs purchase when prevailing for the filly out of Newmarket Pretty Polly Stakes winner Saphira’s Fire.

Canford Cliffs is working through his third Australian book of mares here at Blue Gum Farm this season. He is displaying his usual thorough professionalism and fantastic fertility. At a fee of just $13,750, he represents fantastic value. It’s not too late to call Philip Campbell or Chris Kent to discuss your mare’s mating with Canford Cliffs this season. His first Australian yearlings sell in 2015.
