Excelebration Paddock Shot

200,000gns Excelebration filly shines in Book 1

Excelebration has enjoyed another good year on the track and a well-connected filly caught the eye of buyers at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale in Newmarket on Tuesday.

The half-sister to July Stakes winner Mehmas was sold from Denis and Joan Brosnan’s Co Limerick-based Croom House Stud and hails from a star-studded family that includes French Classic heroine Avenir Certain.

She is set to race for a client of Charlie Gordon-Watson after the Berkshire-based agent had the final say at 200,000gns.
