Mohammed Al Shehhi, General Manager of Emirates Racing Authority (ERA), was happy with the turnout during the sale and commented: “We are happy with the large attendance at the auction and the fact it was well attended by owners from various GCC countries apart from UAE based owners. “The Horses In Training Sale is a good opportunity for owners to look into buying horses with real potential. Horses that have participated in racing and won races before. Previous auctions have been a great success and we have seen graduates from the sales achieve a good amount of success under new ownership and I hope those that have bought horses during the auction will stand to gain from winning races in the future.”
