Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale Continues Record Run

The Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale came to a close with the fifth and final day seeing an additional 93 lots sell for 424,900 guineas, with a clearance of almost 80%. The five-day turnover rose 9% to a record 27,282,200 guineas at an average of 25,617 guineas and a median of 11,000 guineas.

The top price on the final day of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale was 50,000 guineas for BECKTON, a filly from the first-crop of FINJAAN, who was knocked down to Will Douglass for 50,000 guineas.

Douglass purchased the half-sister to the Group 3 winner CHIGUN on behalf of Qatari trainer Gassim Ghazali and following the purchase commented;

"I saw the filly this morning, and liked her. I rang Gassim, who is now on a plane. She has good form, but is a maiden and there is good prize-money in Qatar for maidens.

"We've bought 13 this week, many of them maidens."

BECKTON was consigned by Robyn Brisland’s Sackville House Stables.

At the conclusion of the 2017 Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented;

“The one word which best describes the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale is ‘unique’. The sale is unique in that there is nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world in terms of size and diversity and it is also unique for the extraordinary number of overseas buyers it attracts every year.

“This year’s catalogue was the largest ever, with almost 250 more lots catalogued than last year, and the sale has still managed to achieve a clearance rate of 85% as well as record turnover for the third time in the past four years. The obvious highlight of the sale was the 700,000 guineas record top price for the outstanding Group 2 winning GALILEO filly ELIZABETH BROWNING, and in addition we have had a record 51 six figure lots including an unprecedented 18 selling for 200,000 guineas or more, all of which demonstrates the sustained demand for quality horses.

“While the top priced lots grab the headlines, the real feature of the Autumn Horses in Training Sale is the international participation which is evident at all levels of this market. The top twenty lots have been shared amongst buyers from Britain, Ireland, Australia, China, Dubai, Hong Kong, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the USA and in total buyers from more than 30 different countries have all played their part in this week’s record breaking sale. The British and Irish National Hunt fraternity have been very active all week, European buyers, in particular those from Greece and Spain, have been prolific, and as ever the extraordinary support of buyers from throughout the Gulf region continues to have a massive influence on this truly unique bloodstock sale.

“Looking ahead we have top class catalogues for the Tattersalls December Sale, which features the final instalment of the once in a generation Ballymacoll Dispersal, and we look forward to seeing an equally diverse international presence at Europe’s premier foal and breeding stock sale."
