Tattersalls is pleased to confirm that in accordance with Government regulations concerning livestock and horse auctions, the forthcoming Tattersalls December Sales will take place in Newmarket as scheduled starting on Monday 23rd November and concluding on Thursday 3rd December.

The Tattersalls December Yearling Sale will take place Monday 23rd November, followed by the four-day Tattersalls December Foal Sale from Wednesday 25th - Saturday 28th November. The sale will as ever conclude with the four-day Tattersalls December Mares Sale which will take place Monday 30th November - Thursday 3rd December.

Commenting on the confirmed dates, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;

“We are delighted and relieved that we have received clarity on this crucial issue and it is clear that the ratified Government regulations will allow us to stage the full Tattersalls December Sale on the originally scheduled dates. This is a huge relief for the industry and we are enormously grateful that the 2020 bloodstock sales season in Britain can proceed and conclude as planned. The Tattersalls December Sale is an event of global significance within the bloodstock industry and the possibility of wholesale disruption was a deeply worrying prospect for all concerned.

“As we all know, staging bloodstock sales in 2020 has been challenging to say the least. To be able to hold the Tattersalls December Sales on the scheduled dates will be universally welcomed and applauded not only in Britain and Ireland, but by the wider bloodstock industry and we will continue to do our utmost to bring the testing 2020 Tattersalls sales season to as successful a conclusion as possible.”

The December Sales will be conducted under strict COVID related protocols and attendance will be restricted only to those professionally involved in the sale. Professional participants should submit the official online Medical Declaration Forms to Tattersalls well in advance of the sale and the relevant form will be available on www.tattersalls.com. Live internet bidding and telephone bidding through members of the Tattersalls team will again be available for buyers unable to attend the sale in person and buyers should register online with Tattersalls in advance of the sale.

The catalogues for the Tattersalls December Sales are all out now and also available online.
