Outstanding calibre of Gelding pedigrees at the Derby Sale

Derby Sale

Tattersalls Ireland's Derby Sale strength is illustrated not just by the success of its graduates but also the calibre of pedigrees it attracts. Eight geldings catalogued in the Derby Sale are out of Black Type winning mares.

A rare offering is Lot 22 a gelding by Kendargent and the only horse by Haras de Colleville's outstanding sire catalogued in the Derby Sale. His dam is the Group 2 May Hill Stakes winner Karasta, who was runner-up in the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac. Selling through Oaks Farm Stables, this gelding is a half-brother to four winning hurdlers including the Listed winner Karasenir.

A trio of first foals out of high-class race mares is headed by Lot 209 out of the multiple winner Shop DJ.
