German filly heads Tattersalls day


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Klaus Jacob's Newsells Park Stud, Keeneland November's second-leading buyer with more than $15.9 million spent, added another filly to its stable Tuesday at the Tattersalls December mare sale's second session in Newmarket, England.

Newsells Park Stud signed for the English auction's second-day session-topper, an $813,750 Acatenango filly named Midnight Angel. The German-bred 3-year-old sold as a horse in training and went through the ring from Germany's Union Stud consignment.

The session-topper is a European Group 1-placed runner. She is out of the unraced Sure Blade mare Midnight Fever, who also produced North American Grade 2 winner Moonlady.

The Tuesday session in Newmarket sold 200 lots for $17,888,666, yielding an average price of $89,444. That brings the two-day total for the December sales' mare sessions to $32,370,650 for 386 head. The two-day average is $83,862.

The Tattersalls December mare sales were to continue through Dec. 5.
