Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale Concludes

The fourth and final session of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale brought down the curtain on the world’s largest horses in training sale. Sustained demand continued through to the end with a clearance rate in excess of 90% taking the turnover for the sale past 25 million guineas, the third highest in the sale's history.

Loughnane Secures Daysaq for 40,000 Guineas

The highlight of the final session was the 40,000 guineas given for DAYSAQ from the Shadwell Stud draft. The two-year-old son of INVINCIBLE SPIRIT has raced just twice and is rated 78 by ‘Timeform’ and was knocked down to trainer Daniel Mark Loughnane.

Loughnane said: “His first run at Wolverhampton was very good [when fourth] but he didn’t run so well on his second start. I don’t think the track at Chelmsford suited him. I’ve bought him for a syndicate which has horses with me.

“We’ll keep him going on the All-Weather, but we’ll get him home and make a plan from there.”

Chairman's Statement

At the conclusion of the 2019 Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented;

“A record price for a colt of 625,000 guineas, four lots making 300,000 guineas or more and fourteen selling for 200,000 guineas and above all demonstrate the enduring appeal of this unique fixture. The top 20 lots this week sold to buyers from England, Ireland, America, Australia, Bahrain, Dubai, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia and it is the diversity and sheer number of buyers which make the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale an unrivalled marketplace.

“The Autumn Horses in Training Sale is a magnet for buyers at all levels of the market and the key to the sale’s appeal is that it caters for literally every possible requirement, both Flat and National Hunt. Amongst the top 10 lots we had the outstanding Group 1 placed two year old SUMMER SANDS, the four year old miler SALUTE THE SOLDIER, the top class stayer MEKONG, a regally bred broodmare prospect LADY CORSICA and Juddmonte Farms’ improving three year old SASH. Nowhere else will buyers find such a rich and varied choice of quality proven horses in training and it is this feature which makes the sale an unmissable event for so many people.

“Every year we marvel at the sustained demand from throughout the Gulf region and 2019 has been no exception. Buyers from Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have yet again had a massive impact on the sale, and there is no doubt that the growing strength of racing in the region has spurred the buyers on. They have been joined by strong contingents from throughout Europe, most notably Greece, Italy, Poland, Spain, Scandinavia and the Czech Republic and from further afield Americans, Australians and buyers from Hong Kong have all contributed to a sale turnover bettered only twice and an impressive clearance rate of 90%. The Autumn Horses in Training Sale has enjoyed consistent success in Australia and the sale’s four high profile 2019 Group 1 winners there this year have not gone unnoticed with Australian buyers particularly active this week.

“Probably the only other European bloodstock sale that attracts overseas buyers in similar numbers is the Tattersalls December Sale and as we approach the Europe’s premier foal and breeding stock sale we can take plenty of encouragement from the sustained international demand at the Tattersalls over the past four days."
