Friday, 30th October 2009

Overall at the conclusion of the 4 days at Tattersalls, 903 lots had sold for a cumulative 17,457,800 guineas (A$33.17m) which was down 11.3% on last year’s final total. The cumulative average of 19,333 guineas (A$36,700) was down 8.2%. However the cumulative median of 9,000 guineas (A$17,100) was up 12.5% & the final clearance rate of 85% improved from 79% in 2008. Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony summed up: “Our 2009 yearling sales outperformed expectations & this week's sale has continued in a similar vein. Overall this has been another week which has provided encouragement for the industry. Quality horses have sold particularly well, with buyers from all corners of the world providing stern competition for the domestic buyers. It has been gratifying to have seen the success of past graduates from the sale attracting an unprecedented number of Australian buyers.”
