Quinns splash out at DBS for All Or Nothin

TRIPLE winner All Or Nothin was the highlight on the final day of the DBS Autumn Sale yesterday.

Sean Quinn, son of trainer John, made the winning bid of £50,000 for the three-year-old son of Majestic Missile, who will be heading back to the Quinn family's Bellwood Cottage Stables.

"He has been bought for a new partnership," said Quinn jnr. "We didn't really want to see him go, as he's still progressing and there are races to be won with him."

Jim Best went to £45,000 for the 85-rated Lyssio, who beat the useful Rockinante at Epsom in August for Michael Attwater. The five-year-old son of Motivator is well travelled, having won two races in Germany, where he was also Listed-placed, before being narrowly touched off in a valuable handicap at this year's Dubai Carnival.

"He has decent Flat form and I hope he translates that form over jumps," said Best. "He has been bought for Jack Callaghan, who is looking for a better class of horse to go jumping."

David Barron saw off Robin O'Ryan, assistant to Richard Fahey, at £36,000 for Esteaming. The two-year-old son of Sir Percy has been a model of consistency this season, finishing second in three maidens for his owner-trainer Mick Channon.

"He's been bought for Derek Cook, owner of Suits Me, who was looking for a younger model," said Barron. "He has a decent level of ability and we will put him away and let him strengthen over the winter, before trying to win a maiden with him in the spring."
