THE final share in Wootton Bassett, the sire of this year's triple Group 1 hero Almanzor, will be auctioned online on Arqana's online auction facility Arqanaonline.

The auction will begin on October 24 at 3pm local time (2pm GMT) and run until the same time the following day on October 25.

A resident of Haras d'Etreham, the Group 1-winning son of Iffraaj was syndicated into 50 shares with 20 offered to breeders and 30 retained by Etreham.

Last year he covered a book of 130 mares with the Normandy operation contractually committed to limiting the horse to that number of mares every year.

Retired to stud at a fee of €6,000, his first crop of 17 foals includes Almanzor and the Group 2-placed filly Do Re Mi Fa Sol.

The successful bidder who gains the last share in Wootton Bassett will be guaranteed two nominations a year to the sire.
