ONE lot by Galileo, five by his highflying freshman son Frankel and four by Dubawi feature among a 1,136-strong catalogue for the Tattersalls December Foal Sale, which has been published online.
The auction takes place in Newmarket over four days starting November 23.
The one-off by Galileo is a filly out of Group 3 Leopardstown 1,000 Guineas Trial winner Lady Springbank from Castlefarm Stud.
Other leading sires with progeny on offer include Dansili, Dark Angel, Invincible Spirit, Kodiac, Lope De Vega, Pivotal, Sea The Stars and Shamardal.
Toronado has the largest draft among the first-crop sires, with 41 on offer, while Charm Spirit and Mukhadram ave 28 each and Sea The Moon has 21.
Derby winners Australia and Ruler Of The World have ten and three foals in the catalogue respectively, while brilliant miler Kingman has eight.
Group 1 winners Dunaden, Garswood, Magician, No Nay Never, Olympic Glory, Slade Power and War Command also have first-crop foals at Tattersalls.
Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: "Every year the Tattersalls December Foal Sale attracts pinhookers from throughout Britain, Ireland and further afield, but the sale is an equally important fixture for many of the world's leading racehorse owners.
"This year's catalogue features foals by all of the current top 20 active sires in Britain and Ireland, as well as significant numbers by an exciting collection of first crop sires, all of which should appeal to the usual international cast of buyers who consistently make the December Foal Sale the premier sale of its type in Europe."
