Tattersalls has amended the start times for each day of the forthcoming Tattersalls December Foal Sale. All four days of the December Foal Sale, which takes place Wednesday 25th - Saturday 28th November, will now start at 10.00am; an hour earlier than published in the catalogue.


The amendment comes in response to a lower than usual number of withdrawals from the sale which looked likely to lead to each session ending later than originally anticipated.


Commenting on the amendment, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;


“There is no doubt that COVID - related changes to our selling procedures combined with full catalogues have contributed to some long days at recent sales and we are keen to avoid this scenario if at all possible. The original start time of 11.00am for each day of our December Foal Sale reflected this year's smaller catalogue and now that we appear to have fewer withdrawals than expected, we feel it is in the best interests of all participants to start each day at 10.00am; an hour earlier than published in the catalogue.”


The start times for the December Yearling Sale and December Mares Sale will remain unchanged. The December Yearling Sale, which takes place Monday 23rd November, will start at 11.00am as published in the catalogue, and all four days of the December Mares Sale will commence at 9.30am as published in the catalogue.
