Commenting on the 2022 Tattersalls February Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;  

“The Tattersalls February Sale continues to be a source of high-quality breeding stock and horses in training, with the dams of three individual Group/Grade 1 winners in 2021 a prime example. There is no shortage of top class breeding stock in this year’s catalogue headlined by major consignments from Shadwell Estates and Godolphin, which will undoubtedly appeal to the usual diverse mix of domestic and international buyers who have made the Tattersalls February Sale Europe’s undisputed leading midwinter sale.”
