The catalogue contains 59 half or full siblings to classic or G1 winners and 243 are half or full siblings to Group and Listed winners.

There are yearlings from 21 classic or G1-winning mares.

"Graduates of Book 1 of the October Yearling Sale have enjoyed another stellar year with the likes of Blue Point, Japan and Phoenix Of Spain flying the flag throughout Europe," said Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony.

"The achievements of Book 1 purchases at the highest level in America have further demonstrated the uniquely global appeal of Europe's premier yearling sale and this year's catalogue is yet another in a long sequence of truly exceptional catalogues.

"We have an extraordinary number of yearlings by the very best of an outstanding cast of European sires and, crucially for buyers at every level of Book 1, all 552 yearlings can reward owners with the unprecedented prize money offered through the Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus scheme."
