2014 Group 1 winners G FORCE, THE OFFER and FORETELLER have all shown the key to the sale’s enduring global appeal and the 2014 renewal, which takes place Monday 27th - Thursday 30th October, combines all the usual ingredients to attract buyers from all corners of the world. Numbering 1,539 lots, the catalogue features more than 400 British and Irish trained entries boasting ‘Timeform’ ratings of 90 or more, no less than 37 Group and Listed winners, including the Group 1 winners BAYRIR and KRYPTON FACTOR, and an equally impressive 99 Black Type performers.

The high class Ballydoyle consignment numbers 47 lots, while Juddmonte Farms have 42 catalogued and Shadwell Estates a further 67. Current top 20 British Flat trainers John Gosden, Richard Hannon, Mark Johnston, Richard Fahey, William Haggas, Sir Michael Stoute, Roger Varian, David O’Meara, Andrew Balding, Marco Botti, Kevin Ryan, Luca Cumani, David Simcock, Mick Channon, Charlie Hills and Ralph Beckett all have significant consignments, as do leading Irish trainers Aidan O’Brien, Dermot Weld, Jim Bolger, Ger Lyons, Mick Halford, John Oxx, David Wachman, Edward Lynam, Tommy Stack, Johnny Murtagh, Andy Oliver, David Marnane and Jessica Harrington.

Consignments from France and Germany add to the pan - European flavour of the catalogue and the largest consignment, numbering 76 lots comes from Richard Hannon’s powerful East Everleigh Stables. Sharing ’Timeform' ratings of 116, the two highest rated of the Hannon team are the Group 2 winning duo PRODUCER and TRUMPET MAJOR, while the current ‘Timeform’ top rated in the catalogue is Wokingham winner BACCARAT on a mark of 121.

Eyecatching two year olds include the very highly regarded VERT DE GRECE, recent runner up in the Group 2 Futurity at the Curragh behind subsequent Group 1 winner GLENEAGLES, the David Elsworth Group 2 placed ASTROPHYSICS, HEARTBREAK HERO from the William Haggas stable, and the smart Listed winning and Group 2 placed MIND OF MADNESS. French juvenile form is also to the fore in a quality consignment of French trained horses from Con Marnane’s Bansha House Stables, all of which are qualified for French Premiums. Six of the seven Bansha House team are two year olds, five of which have already won in France including the Listed placed ROYAL STYLE. The septet is completed by the high class three year old ANOTHER PARTY, the winner of four races and placed nine times at Group or Listed level.

Commenting on the 2014 Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;

“Year after year the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale produces Group 1 horses throughout the world and the likes of Haydock Sprint winner G FORCE, purchased for 25,000 guineas, multiple US Grade 1 winner OBVIOUSLY and Australian Group 1 winners THE OFFER and FORETELLER, have continued to reinforce the sale’s reputation as the number one of its type in the world. The unique appeal of the Autumn Horses in Training Sale is that it caters for every possible requirement, both Flat and National Hunt, and this year’s catalogues as ever looks set to attract a truly cosmopolitan cast of buyers.”
