Group 1 winner La Petite Coco (Ruler Of The World) is the latest addition to the new Sceptre Session during the Tattersalls December Mares Sale. 

The Team Valor-raced four-year-old has won five of her 10 career starts to date including the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes (1m2f) at the Curragh in June, providing her trainer, Paddy Twomey, with his first Group 1 winner.

Twomey said: "La Petite Coco will always be special to me and the team at Athassel House as our first Group 1 winner. She is a hugely talented filly and has beaten some very smart fillies in the course of her career, not least dual Classic winner Love, when she won the Group 2 Blandford Stakes last year. She has all the qualities you want in a race filly and a broodmare.

"She is a good looking filly with a wonderful temperament and a huge pedigree, and she tries her heart out every time she runs."

Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony added: "The Team Valor owned La Petite Coco is another wonderful Group 1-winning filly coming to this year's Tattersalls December Sale.

"Similar to Alcohol Free and Saffron Beach, she combines outstanding ability with looks and pedigree and she will be another highlight of our new Sceptre Sessions which are already shaping up to be a bit special."

Bred in Ireland by Bernd and Ute Schone, La Petite Coco is out of the unraced mare La Petite Virginia (Konigstiger), a half-sister to 1996 Group 1 German Derby (2400m) winner Lavirco (Konigsstuhl).
