O'Callaghan Buys Dubawi Colt for 200,000 Guineas
At the opening session of the 2019 Tattersalls December Sale, which featured a yearling section, well known bloodstock advisor David O'Callaghan of Sun Bloodstock secured the Dubawi colt out of Voleuse De Coeurs for 200,000 guineas after seeing off Stroud Coleman Bloodstock’s Anthony Stroud. The colt is out of the Gr1 Irish St Leger-winning daughter of Teofilo. "We've bought out the partnership," said O'Callaghan. "She was a very good mare and he is quite similar to her in looks – he had just been held up a bit and so had not sold earlier this autumn. This colt is a good mover and looks as though he will need some time – that is fine, we can give him time. He goes to David Simcock." The April-born colt was consigned by Hazelwood Bloodstock, consignor of this year's 3.6 million guineas October Book 1 top lot, also a son of Dubawi. He was one of three yearlings to fetch six figures – the other two being a Golden Horn colt out of a Selkirk half-sister to Gr1 winner Lady Marian, and a Sea The Stars filly out of Listed-placed Nina Terz who’s half-brother is prodigiously talented but enigmatic Hong Kong Gr1 winner Pakistan Star.
