Tattersalls Autumn HIT Sale Day-2
The Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale continued in robust fashion on day two with nine lots realising 100,000 guineas or more and a packed Park Paddocks crowd pushing the average and median significantly higher. A total of 233 lots were sold for 7,390,900 guineas at an average of 31,721 guineas and a median of 19,000 guineas. The turnover rose 33% on last year's corresponding session whilst the average and median both rose 41%. The clearance rate was an outstanding 89%. Roger Charlton's Beckhampton Stables was responsible for the top price for the second day in a row when Cloudberry was knocked down to Qatari trainer Jassim Ghazali for 310,000 guineas. The 3YO son of Pivotal has shown great promise winning 4 of his 5 starts to date. The Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale continues at 9.30am on Wednesday, October 26.
