2013 Yearlings



***News Update*** The yearling sales in 2016 at Tattersalls proved to be a record year for Floors Stud who sold 12 yearlings across Books 1 and 2 with the record top price lot 475 by Frankel out of Attraction fetching 1.6million guineas. Other successes included lot 540 by Dubawi out of Comic (750,000 guineas) and lot 300 by Invincible Spirit out of Scarborough Fair (240,000 guineas). The Duke commented “Frankel is the most exciting stallion and Attraction was the most exciting thing to happen in my racing life – both of them made all up the Rowley Mile. This colt was always the coolest horse to work with, a fantastic temperament and outlook and my staff have done a wonderful job all year. “It is an honour that Sheikh Hamdan and Shadwell have bought him’’ ***************************** One of the most successful horses Floors Stud has bred was Attraction. Her record of ten wins from fifteen starts, including five Group I’s, place her up with the very best horses in recent years, and she is certainly the finest racehorse ever bred in Scotland. Her wins include the 1,000 Guineas, the Irish 1,000 Guineas and the Coronation Stakes. She was Champion Two-Year Old Filly in Europe and Champion Three-Year Old Filly in Ireland. Read her full story here.

Attraction's success has continued as a broodmare. She is now the dam of six foals including Huntlaw who has won six races this year in the Dukes colours. (Previous winners include Cushion and Fountain of Youth showing form at Group level. Mention must also be given to Viva Pataca and his half sister Laughing, both Group 1 winners out of Comic. Viva Pataca was sold to Hong Kong where he had phenomenal success winning 18 races in total including the Hong Kong Derby, the QEII Cup and the Hong Kong Gold Cup and earning £6 million in prize money.
