"He'll ship straight away to California," he said. "It's good to have them out there running. I'm not sure yet who will train him."He's a nice horse who has his conditions to race in the US. It's nice he's a two-year-old - it's always good to have a horse with a future."
"I was going to come here anyway but it definitely helps," said Cohen. "Obviously we're buying at a discount. Having said that, so are a number of other people. So when you factor that in, is there really a discount?"
"As a stakes-placed Montjeu, she's a bit of a collectors item," said Fitzsimmons. "She's for a new client to stay in Europe but I'm not sure where she'll go."
"He's been bought for Abdulatif Hussain Al-Emadi, who is here," said Al-Malki, who trains 70 horses in Doha. "Emma has been helping me this week."He's in good form and a nice type of horse - the right type to do a job in Qatar. There's no specific target yet - we'll just get him back to Qatar and go from there."
"We're keen to buy horses that can run at the summer festivals," said Hillen. "This horse ran well at Goodwood in the summer and you could see him ending up going back there, perhaps Ascot as well. He's a solid, tough horse."
"He's just a lovely individual," said Knight. "And he came with a good report from Ballydoyle."Zoffany is obviously doing well and we liked the fact he's out of a Galileo mare. I wouldn't be surprised if we cracked on with him and tried to win a maiden before giving him a break."
"He's for an owner in Hong Kong," said Donald. "He's a nice, scopey horse with a bit of maturing to do. But he's a very good physical and is effective at the right trip and on the right ground for Hong Kong. I know David held him in high regard and didn't want to lose him."
"It was an eye catching run at Newmarket last time," said Donald. "The horses that beat him look smart [Dreamfield and Top Score] and I think he just got tired coming up the hill."
"He's for Dubai but we're not sure yet who will train him," said Stroud of the Rip Van Winkle four-year-old. "He's got the right profile for Dubai - the right rating and he's sound. There should be plenty of opportunities for him there."
"He's a gorgeous horse," said McKeever, "the standout of the day. He's an attractive stayer and we couldn't leave him behind. You wouldn't know he'd run just two days ago. It was good to see Roger Charlton bidding hard to keep him too."This sale has been a happy hunting ground for us - we bought [Group 1 winners] Glencadam Gold and The Offer here. Let's hope it continues."
