Commenting on the catalogue for the 2019 Tattersalls December Yearling Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;
“The Tattersalls December Yearling Sale is a consistent source of top class performers and Group 1 Prix d’Ispahan winner ZABEEL PRINCE and Group 2 Royal Lodge Stakes winner ROYAL DORNOCH are evidence of the quality on offer. The vast majority of the leading British and Irish sires have yearlings catalogued, and owners and trainers will undoubtedly be drawn towards the large number of yearlings qualified for lucrative Tattersalls bonuses or valuable sales races.”
