Outbox Lands Amir Trophy For Watson, Doyle

A stakes winner in England and stakes-performed in France and in Sweden, Outbox (GB) (Frankel {GB}) added a stamp from Qatar to his passport for Saturday's His Highness The Amir Trophy in Doha and walked away with the lion's share of the US$1-million in prize money on offer. The Amir Trophy is one of three races contested locall that is recognized internationally as black-type eligible. Ridden aggressively from a wide alley by Hollie Doyle, Outbox took up a pace-pressing position from second, as Qatari Gold (Lemon Drop Kid), with Tom...

Another Sale, Another Record

By Chris McGrath NEWMARKET, UK--This has already been another record-breaking auction, even if they decide to release the whole of Thursday's closing catalogue into the high street--and a significant one, in terms of underwriting a yearling market that had appeared so curiously immune to the challenges of domestic prizemoney and a volatile economic environment. Once again, the third session of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses-in-Training Sale was defined by twin channels of export traffic: one to the Middle East, with investment seemingly driven not just by the Saudi Cup but by...

Tattersalls Autumn Horses-In Training Sale Off To A Strong Start

NEWMARKET, UK--Well, if the astounding yearling market is to make any kind of sense, then this one needs to prove every bit as strong. And the early signs, after the opening session of the Tattersalls Horses-in-Training Sale, are that those who invested so heavily in new stock at the October Sale can pin their hopes on other dividends beyond the notorious limits to domestic prizemoney. Year-on-year comparisons at an auction like this must carry a caveat, granted the random element in the calibre and distribution of the best stock. But...

925,000gns English King Sent to Rule Australia

NEWMARKET, UK—There are obviously lessons to ponder, regarding the divergent economies of British and Australian racing. But first and foremost, let's pause and give due credit to those who brought English King (GB) (Camelot {GB}) to the point where he could on Wednesday become much the most expensive colt ever sold at Europe's premier horses-in-training sale. After all, when auctioneer John O'Kelly tried to coax one last effort out of underbidder Ted Voute for lot 1153a, he told him: "There's only one chance to buy English King." But Jeremy Brummitt...

Haggas Draft Tops Brighter Trade

NEWMARKET, UK--It's a conundrum of the training profession: do you serve your client better by exhausting every last ounce of a horse's potential, or by preserving a degree of residual value when the time has come to cash out and restock? You see exemplary operators at both ends of that spectrum, but only rarely does anyone manage to reconcile both obligations as expertly as William Haggas did with his principal draft on the second day of the Autumn Horses-in-Training Sale at Tattersalls. Of 17 Somerville Lodge horses into the ring,...

Slow Start to Tattersalls Autumn Horses-in-Training Sale

NEWMARKET, UK--A sale like this will always be rather a law unto itself. The quality on offer won't be as consistent, year to year, as a cross-section selected from each new crop for graded catalogues of younger stock. And the distribution of such quality as does appear, across a four-session auction, will be no less variable. So let's not leap to any premature conclusions about a steep decline in returns from the opening day of the Autumn Horses-in-Training at Tattersalls. The coveted Juddmonte draft, for one thing, has this time...
