Alcohol Free: Several Group 1 winners for sale at Tattersalls December Mare Sale

Alan Crowhurst

The four-time Alcohol Free Group 1 winner will be sold at the Tattersalls December Mare Sale which takes place from November 28 to December 1, during the new Scepter session on the second day of the auction.

The versatile daughter of No Nay Never is owned by Jeff Smith and has won four competitions at the highest level; the Cheveley Park Stakes at two, the Coronation and Sussex Stakes at three and the July Cup this summer at four.

The Andrew Balding-trained filly finished third behind the brilliant Baaeed on her last Sussex Stakes start at Goodwood and is set to bow out on Champions Day at Ascot next month in the British Champions Sprint Stakes or the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. .

After her emphatic victory in the July Cup, Smith said of her superstar: “This filly is something else, the way she won is just unbelievable. She’s a champion, there’s absolutely no doubt in my mind.”

Balding said: “She’s a superstar! She’s the only filly I’ve trained to win four Group 1s and the only horse I’ve trained to win Group 1s at two, three and four years old. which is pretty special – and hopefully there are more to come.

“She’s not only an exceptional racing filly, she’s also a magnificent person; an imposing and flighty filly who has improved physically and mentally with age. She acts on all types of ground and will become a day a beautiful broodmare.”

Bred by Churchtown House Stud and purchased for €40,000 by Smith’s Littleton Stud at Goffs November Foal Sale in 2018, Alcohol Free is out of the third generation of Coolmore’s red bull, No Nay Never.

She is the fourth foal of the Hard Spun Plying winning mare and a half sister to French Listed winner Alexander James. The couple’s half-sister by Gleneagles will be offered as lot 136 in Book 1 of Tattersalls October Yearling Sale by Jossestown Farm.

Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said: “It is an honor to be asked to contribute non-alcoholic products to Tattersalls’ December sale on behalf of Jeff Smith.

“Jeff has been the most wonderful supporter of British racing and breeding for so many years and Alcohol Free is yet another outstanding performer to wear his famous colors following in the illustrious footsteps of some great champions including Arabian Queen, Chief Singer, Lochsong and Persian Punch.

He added: “Four-time winning racing fillies in Group 1 rarely appear at public auction and booze free is a rare gem to grace our first Scepter sessions at Tattersalls December sale.”
