Buoyant Trade Continues on Third Day of Autumn HIT Sale

Trade on the third day of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale continued in buoyant fashion with 23 lots making 100,000 guineas or more and SOLOMONíS BAY topping proceedings at 390,000 guineas. A total of 279 lots were sold for 10,799,600 guineas, a record turnover for a single day at this sale, at an average of 38,708 guineas and a median of 22,000 guineas.

Topping the sale on the third day of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale was the Listed Surrey Stakes winner SOLOMONíS BAY who realised 390,000 guineas when knocked down to Rupert Pritchard-Gordon after he saw off the determined effort of Anthony Stroud.

Consigned by Roger Varianís Carlburg Stables on behalf of Prince Faisal, the three-year-old son of EXCEED AND EXCEL is out of a SADLERíS WELLS mare and holds a Timeform rating of 112 following a win last time out at Kempton over six furlongs.

Pritchard-Gordon commented after the sale;

"He is for a Hong Kong client and will be racing in Hong Kong. He has form from 6f to a mile and has plenty of speed - he has a profile which should suit the race programme in Hong Kong very well. He is a very consistent horse who has done very little wrong. He has not been over-raced and he came here looking in great shape.

"He has been in good recent form, and his last win came on the All-Weather which opens up options for both surfaces in Hong Kong."

Chris Waller, trainer of Australian wonder mare WINX and a regular purchaser at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale through his agent Guy Mulcaster, has purchased seven lots for a total of 880,000 guineas at this yearís sale including todayís second highest priced lot BRIMHAM ROCKS.

The three-year-old son of FASTNET ROCK has won four times, most recently at York over a mile and six furlongs, and was bought by Chris Waller Racing for 340,000 guineas.

Timeform rated 106, the bay gelding is out of the Listed-placed mare COLIMA and was consigned by trainer Ralph Beckettís Kimpton Down Stables on behalf of owner-breeders Vimy and David Aykroyd who commented;

"We did not offer him as a yearling, and, yes, it is mixed emotions to sell him but you have to move them on. We have a Frankel yearling and a Kingman half-sister to this horse going into training next week with Ralph.

"We still have the mare Colima so we really hope that this horse goes on to be successful in Australia. We bought her at Tattersalls as a foal."

Mulcaster, who saw off the challenges of eventual underbidder Alastair Donald, said;

"We had identified this horse on his form earlier this summer - it's been a struggle this week, so it's good to buy one.

"We'll ship him down, get him into the system and acclimatise him. We'll take it step by step and see how he gets on."

Another lot destined for foreign lands is FROZEN ANGEL who was purchased by Sean Woods for 335,000 guineas on behalf of Hong Kong-based trainer David Ferraris.

The two-year-old son of DARK ANGEL is a winner over five furlongs and has had numerous outings in Group and Listed company in his first season. Most notably he was second to HAVANA GREY in the Listed National Stakes at Sandown and also runner-up in the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin to UNFORTUNATELY who went on to win the Group 1 Prix Morny.

Timeform rated 106, FROZEN ANGEL was consigned by trainer Tom Dascombeís Manor House Stables.

The Juddmonte Farms draft is always a highlight of the third day of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale and this year proved no different with a total of 27 lots selling for 1,401,500 guineas. The top-priced amongst them was MELTING DEW, the winning son of CACIQUE, who was knocked down for 310,000 guineas to Rupert Pritchard-Gordon.

Formerly trained by Sir Michael Stoute and Timeform rated 103, MELTING DEW is a brother to Group 1 Nassau Stakes winner WINSILI and has won twice and placed four times on his ten starts over distances of a mile to a mile and a half.

"He is lovely athletic horse, with size and scope," said Pritchard-Gordon. 'He will be staying in England and will be targeted at the nice mile and a half heritage handicaps. He still has a little maturing to do and will do well over the winter. My client is very happy to get him."

The Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale continues at 10am on Thursday, November 2.
