Three-year-old The Grey Berry (by Observatory) topped the closing day when selling for 340,000 guineas (about $740,000) as a jumping prospect to agent Aiden Murphy.
Two-year-old Sporting Art (Doneraile Court) is heading back to the U.S. after New York agent Steve Young, accompanied by British adviser Jamie McCalmont, saw off California trainer Jim Cassidy when the colt made 220,000 guineas (about $480,000). Young was acting for owners Jon and Sarah Kelly.
Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony was satisfied with trade and said: "The Autumn horses in training sale has made remarkable progress in recent years, and after the huge rises last year it would have been no great surprise if this year’s renewal had fallen a little short. The turnover, however, has all but matched last year’s wide margin record of almost 24 million guineas.
"The key to the sale’s continuing success is the extraordinary diversity of the buyers, and this week has been no exception with buyers from every continent in the world all making significant contributions."
