Loder Buys Kerashan at Tattersalls' Autumn Sale

The Aga Khan's homebred Kerashan (Ire) topped day two of Tattersalls' Autumn Horses In Training Sale Tuesday when bought for 300,000gns by soon-to-retire trainer David Loder.

Agent John McCormack was underbidder on the 3-year-old son of Sinndar with Alastair Donald of the Kern/Lillingston Association, seated with trainer Ben Cecil, another to bid.

"He's going to come back to my place for the time being and then hopefully he'll be racing here and abroad next year," said Loder, who could not name his client.

Four-year-old sprinter Moss Vale (Ire), a multiple stakes winner by Shinko Forest (Ire), will leave Barry Hills' stable to join North Yorkshire handler David Nicholls after making 260,000gns.

Agent Bobby O'Ryan bought the colt – who could head to the Hong Kong International races in December – on behalf of owner Lady Chryss O'Reilly.

The sale continues Wednesday with a session starting at 9.30 a.m.
