Boltaway Leads Third Session Of Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale

The third session of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale continued the remarkable momentum of the second with exceptional trade resulting in turnover in excess of 10 million guineas, breaking the record aggregate for the sale. Ten lots sold for over 200,000 guineas and the clearance rate was a remarkable 93 percent.

The Juddmonte draft is a customary highlight of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale and it provided the top lot on the third day of this year’s renewal when Boltaway was knocked down to Najd Stud and Peter and Ross Doyle for 400,000 guineas.

The 3-year-old Dubawi colt is out of the four-time Grade 1 winning mare Proviso and has shown smart form himself with four wins from six starts for Roger Charlton this season, earning a ‘Timeform’ rating of 100.

Najd Stud representative Saad bin Mishraf commented:

“We tried to buy this horse privately but that wasn’t possible and so we waited for this sale. It’s proved to be one of the toughest markets I have ever seen for horses in training. He’s by Dubawi, whose offspring have succeeded in Saudi Arabia and out of a Dansili mare, and Dansilis have done very well in Saudi Arabia so he had the right pedigree. He also had size and good feet for racing on dirt.

“He has not been over-raced and he vetted 100 percent, which was one of the main reasons for trying to buy him. All the races in Saudi Arabia are on the up, with better prize money sometimes increased by four or five times. There are races for locally-bred horses and imported horses, and while we don’t have many imported horses the ones we have are very good.”

The Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale continues with the fourth and final session at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28.
