Tattersalls Announces New August Sale
Mixed Sale to Take Place August 25 - 26
Tattersalls is to stage a new mixed sale to be held at its Park Paddocks base in Newmarket on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th August. Similar to the ever - popular Tattersalls July Sale the August Sale will primarily comprise horses and fillies in training, but will also be open to all other categories including breeding stock.
Commenting on the decision to stage a new fixture, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented;
“The decision to stage an August Sale is entirely in response to the unique COVID-19 related circumstances we all find ourselves facing. We were acutely aware as we took entries for the July Sale that the absence of racing was posing major difficulties in terms of assessing the merits of stock and what was suitable for entry in the July Sale. We spoke with a wide cross section of vendors and it became clear that there was significant demand for an extra fixture to accommodate requirements related to the impact of the global pandemic which has caused so much disruption in every walk of life.
“In a normal year there would be a major yearling sale in the week we have chosen for the August Sale, but with that sale moving to a later date we have been able to react positively and collaboratively for the benefit of all concerned.”
Entries are now being taken for the Tattersalls August Sale and should be made online at www.tattersalls.com. The closing date for the sale is expected to be Monday 20th July, but will be finalised at a later date.
