Bremner Heads Second Day Of Tattersalls Hit Sale At 280,000 Guineas
The Kevin Ryan-trained BREMNER was the top lot on the second day of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale at 280,000 guineas on a day where 235 lots were sold for 6,528,800 guineas. The median and the average were both up, by 14% and 2% to 16,000 guineas and 27,782 guineas respectively.
The MANDURO two-year-old BREMNER is headed for Hong Kong and the John Moore stables after being knocked down to SackvilleDonald’s Alastair Donald for 280,000 guineas.
"He is one here that we targeted to buy for Hong Kong," said Donald. "He is a lovely looking horse, looks progressive and should be better over further.
Owned and bred by Martin Wainwright's Highbank Stud, BREMNER has run just three times, winning twice after finishing third first time out for trainer Kevin Ryan. He is BHA rated 91 with ‘Timeform’ reporting that he'll be "better suited by 1m than shorter: open to further improvement."
Underbidders included Johnny McKeever, who was standing with Adrian Bott, a representative for Gai Waterhouse, and Gassim Mohammed Ghazali.
The ROCK OF GIBRALTAR colt JALLOTA looks headed for Dubai and the Carnival there after being knocked down to agent Stephen Hillen for 150,000 guineas.
"He is a good buy - if he has a good Carnival, he could win that back. There is a good programme for three-year-olds at the Dubai Carnival " said Hillen. "His form is pretty solid - he has been up against the best. A trainer has yet to be decided."
That form includes a second in the £100,000 Tattersalls Millions Median Auction Trophy, a third in the Group 2 July Stakes, a fourth in the Group 1 Prix Morny, behind NO NAY NEVER, as well as a fourth in the Group 3 Anglesey Stakes.
Late in the evening Paul Moroney outstayed National Hunt trainer Venetia Williams to secure the three-year-old MISTER IMPATIENCE for 150,000 guineas.
"Mister Impatience has been bought for my brother Mike's stable," reported Paul Moroney. "The horse will go into quarantine, get on the next flight to Australia and then will have break, he probably won't be back on a track until next May or June.”
The HERNANDO colt, who finished second in the Group 3 Chester Vase and fourth in the Group 3 Queen's Vase as Royal Ascot is officially rated 96.
"He's a tough horse," added Moroney. "His form was very strong in the spring, he's been well tried but he has kept on bouncing back, he's tough and resilient and proved he stays two miles at Ascot."
Whilst the Melbourne Cup may be a long term target for MISTER IMPATIENCE, it is also a short term one for Moroney who is travelling to Australia at the end of the week for the to watch recent acquisition VOLEUSE DE COEURS in the ‘race that stops a nation’.
The Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale continues at 9am on Wednesday, October 30.
