Will join Gary Moore after selling for 25,000gns. From the good staying family of Allegretto, the son of Lawman has been placed five times for Willie Muir and appeals as an interesting dual-purpose prospect.
The same figure was earlier matched by Porto Ferro, who was picked up by Dr Jon Scargill on behalf of Dan Tunmore with an eye on all-weather maidens. The daughter of Arcano has been placed three times for Johnny Murtagh, including at Dundalk since the publication of the catalogue.
Here's an interesting breakdown of the international involvement at Tattersalls so far this week. Note: figures do not include horses purchased through agents, which will come to light in the next few days.
So far, visitors from 30 individual countries have participated, including:
Saudi Arabia: 31
Horses have also been purchased to continue their careers in Barbados, Cyprus, Morocco and Poland.
High Commander, who has shown a good level of form in both his starts to date for Andrew Balding and Qatar Racing, becomes the latest addition to Gassim Al Ghazali's stable in Qatar when selling for 57,000gns.
Al Ghazali had to fight off the likes of Emma O'Gorman and Peter Harper for the Teofilo two-year-old, who has run third on both his starts at Haydock and Windsor.
"He's a lightly raced colt with a good profile," said Will Douglass of Charlie Gordon-Watson Bloodstock who has been assisting Al Ghazali this week. "He's shown good form already.
"It's always nice to buy off Andrew Balding and he was also bred by a phenomenal breeder [Hascombe and Valiant Studs] - he's closely related to Footstepsinthesand, who is about the most popular stallion in Qatar, he gets winner after winner out there. It's also nice he's out of a Giant's Causeway mare."
High Commander is a half-brother to minor winner Rock Kristal and out of a placed half-sister to Footstepsinthesand and to the dam of Power.
The Al Ghazali-Douglass partnership have enjoyed success this year with another former Qatar Racing runner in Flying Empress, who was bought out of this sale last year.
Another off to Qatar. This time it is Abdulaziz Al Boenain who signs the ticket at 52,000gns.
Nurlan Bizakov's Dariga is one of the better-bred fillies in the whole catalogue as a Medicean half-sister to Fergus McIver, runner-up in the 2009 Ballysax Stakes. Her dam, Danelissima, won the Noblesse Stakes and is a sister to the dam of Intense Focus and from the further family of Sholokhov and Soldier Of Fortune.
She also showed fair ability on her second start for Roger Varian last week when fourth in a fillies' maiden at Newmarket.
"She's shown ability and I think in time that she will be a very good filly in Qatar," said Al Boenain. "She's very good looking and has the pedigree as well - it's a very good page and she'll be good to breed from at the end of her racing career."
Work, the easy winner of a two mile handicap on her most recent start for David Simcock at Chelmsford, is set for a change of codes after selling for 34,000gns to David Pipe. The daughter of Mastercraftsman has won and been placed once from seven runs and is rated 51.
Last time out maiden winner is bought back for 20,000gns. The son of Requinto was backed into 12/1 from 100/1 when successful on his second start, a 7f maiden, for Jo Hughes at Wolverhampton in late September.
Meanwhile, one of the more interesting names of the week has appeared on the buyers' sheets. 'Fidel Castro' was the winning bidder on lot 1430, Maer Rocks.
At the conclusion of the 2016 Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented; “In a year when the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale has produced a Classic winner purchased for 12,000 guineas, it is perhaps not surprising to see such frenetic demand at this unique sale.
"Jet Setting winning this year's Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas only seven months after being bought here is yet another in a long list of outstanding success stories to come from the Autumn Horses in Training Sale, and I have no doubt that there will be plenty more to come from this year’s sale.
“The turnover and median at this week’s sale have both risen to record levels and the average has leapt by around 35%. Even more impressive has been the clearance rate of more than 90%, yet again demonstrating the enduring international appeal of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale. Every year we reflect on the extraordinary diversity of buyers, both domestic and overseas, who attend the Autumn Horses in Training, but the sheer number of people here this week has been almost overwhelming. The beauty of this sale is that it caters for every possible requirement, both Flat and National Hunt, and the sales paddocks have been a hive of international activity throughout the four days.
“Competition at the top of the market has been particularly fierce with the number of lots making 200,000 guineas or more rising from five last year to twelve this week, but it has been the sustained demand at every level of the market which has been the real feature. Buyers from more than 30 different countries have all contributed to the success of the sale, with those from the Gulf region making a massive contribution, American, Australian and Hong Kong interests all playing their part, and prolific activity from throughout Europe with Greek and Spanish buyers very much to the fore. A huge proportion of the horses sold this week will go abroad, but the renewed vigour from the British and Irish National Hunt fraternity has also been particularly welcome and another major factor in making the 2016 renewal of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale so vibrant."
