TATTERSALLS OCTOBER YEARLING SALE BOOK 1

An opening day on a par with last year was a satisfactory result when Tattersalls’ October Sale Book 1 opened in Newmarket yesterday.

In the ethereal world of upper-tier yearling sales any outcome was possible, so turnover of 16,840,000gns, up 12% on last year, albeit from a slightly bigger catalogue, a median of 80,000gns to match the 2008 figure, and an average of 111,523gns, down 2%, have to be classed as rather good, although a glance at the results showed once again that Maktoum and Coolmore money is king and crucial – Darley’s John Ferguson became the day’s top buyer when purchasing 16 horses for 2,710,000gns. The clearance rate of 67% was also marginally up on the same day 12 months ago.

Backed by support from Coolmore chief John Magnier, there were notable results for Galileo, Sadler’s Wells and Holy Roman Emperor.
