"As well as the massive Middle Eastern presence, the feature of the Autumn Horses in Training Sale is the ever increasing influence of Australian buyers drawn to the sale in their search for quality middle distance performers. The Australian contingent has spent more than 2.5 million guineas this week and a look at the probable field for next week's Melbourne Cup tells the story. The race is dominated by British and Irish bred horses, including a number purchased at previous renewals of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale, and the appetite for our middle distance horses is a key part of the continuing success of the sale.

"While buyers from more than 30 different countries have all made a major contribution, they have not had it all their own way and it has been equally encouraging to see the British and Irish National Hunt fraternity active at all levels of the market. The 380,000 guineas paid for co - sale topper GOODWOOD MIRAGE is the highest auction price for a National Hunt prospect in Britain and Ireland this year and is another example of the diversity which sets the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale apart from all other similar sales."
