UK Tatts Yearlings Day-1: Average Down 10%
Overall on Day-1 at Tattersalls, 132 lots sold for 15,078,000 guineas (A$33.17m) at an average of 114,227 guineas (A$251,000) & a median of 80,000 guineas (A$176,000). The sale has been shortened from 4 days to 3 this year (making direct comparisons with last year difficult), but Tattersalls advised "the average on the opening day was down only 10% compared with the sale average at the 2007 renewal & the median exactly the same". Sheikh Mohammed & his bloodstock advisor John Ferguson dominated proceedings, buying 17 lots in total for 3,085,000 guineas (A$6.787m).
