Tattersalls to sponsor Falmouth Stakes
Tattersalls, Europe’s leading bloodstock auctioneers, is to sponsor the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket’s prestigious Moët & Chandon July Festival. To mark the 250th anniversary of Tattersalls, the Group 1 contest will be named the Tattersalls 250th Year Falmouth Stakes and will take place on Friday, 8th July, coinciding with the final day of the Tattersalls July Sale.
One of only two Group 1 races staged at Newmarket’s July Festival, the Tattersalls 250th Year Falmouth Stakes has a rich history with winners this century including multiple Group 1 winners AMAZING MARIA, ELUSIVE KATE, SOVIET SONG and the incomparable French superstar GOLDIKOVA.
Edmond Mahony, Chairman of Tattersalls, said;
“Sponsoring the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes is the perfect fit for Tattersalls. Although Tattersalls started at Hyde Park Corner in London we felt it was appropriate to sponsor a Group 1 contest at Newmarket in our 250th year. The Group 1 Falmouth Stakes is both historic and prestigious, and also coincides with our July Sale which always attracts a cosmopolitan crowd of buyers who enjoy the top class racing at Newmarket’s July Festival.”
Amy Starkey, Regional Director, Jockey Club Racecourses East Region, said;
“We are very much looking forward to the inaugural running of the Tattersalls 250th Year Falmouth Stakes in July. This is a new sponsorship that we are very excited to be working with Tattersalls on, especially with it being their 250th year and during the 350th anniversary of the Home of Horseracing.”
