Tattersalls Autumn HIT Sale Concludes
Overnight, on Thursday, the fourth and final session of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale in the UK 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. At the conclusion of the 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.” He also said, “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."
