Tattersalls December Mares Sale Around The Corner!

Group 1 Winner Pearls Galore on offer

PEARLS GALORE, the brilliant winner of the Group 1 Matron Stakes at Leopardstown on Irish Champions Weekend, is to be offered at the forthcoming Tattersalls December Mares Sale.

The Paddy Twomey trained racemare joins a stellar cast already announced to headline the all-new Sceptre Sessions which includes Group 1 winning fillies ALCOHOL FREE, LA PETITE COCO, SAFFRON BEACH and DESERT BERRY, the dam of this year’s Derby winner DESERT CROWN.

PEARLS GALORE has won five Group and Listed races for her owner/breeder Andreas Putsch’s Haras De Saint Pair and also finished a close second in last year’s Group 1 Matron Stakes behind NO SPEAK ALEXANDER as well as second in the Group 1 Prix de La Foret at Longchamp behind triple Group 1 winner SPACE BLUES.

PEARLS GALORE is by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT out of the Group 3 winning PIVOTAL mare PEARL BANKS, herself a daughter of the outstanding Haras De Saint Pair matriarch PEARLY SHELLS who won the Group 1 Prix Vermeille. She is a half sister to two Listed winners, LUCKY LYCRA and PEARLY STEPH who is herself the dam of 2022 dual Group 3 winner ETERNAL PEARL. INVINCIBLE SPIRIT is already the broodmare sire of four individual Group 1 winners as well as this year’s Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes winner TRILLIUM and last year’s Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes second FLOTUS.

Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented;

“Haras De Saint Pair’s homebred Pearls Galore is another top class Group 1 winning filly coming to this year’s Tattersalls December Mares Sale and anyone who saw her recent emphatic victory in the Group 1 Matron Stakes could not fail to have been impressed. She joins her Group 1 winning Paddy Twomey trained stablemate LA PETITE COCO and is another wonderful addition to the inaugural Sceptre Sessions which promise to showcase some truly exceptional fillies and mares at this year’s December Mares Sale.”

Haras De Saint Pair’s Andreas Putsch added;

“Pearls Galore has everything you could want in a broodmare prospect. A May foal, she has progressed throughout her career putting up an exceptional performance on her last start to beat three other Group 1 fillies by 3 lengths and more in the Matron Stakes. Over four seasons racing Pearls Galore proved herself again and again to be tough, consistent and very gifted. She is sound and healthy after 17 career starts.

She comes from a great family we have had at Saint Pair since her grand dam Pearly Shells won the Prix Vermeille but which also includes the Classic winners St Mark’s Basilica, Magna Grecia, Sariska and Beauty Parlour. She has no Sadler’s Wells, Danehill or Mr Prospector in her pedigree and will be an attractive cross for most of the world’s best stallions.”

The Tattersalls December Mares Sale takes place from 28th November to 1st December with the Sceptre Sessions taking place on the evenings of Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th November.
