Commenting on the 2022 Tattersalls July Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;
“Quality and diversity are the hallmarks of the Tattersalls July Sale which has long been established as Europe’s premier midsummer sale and this year’s catalogue holds plenty of appeal for buyers from throughout the world, whatever their requirements. In 2021 mares bought for as little as 8,000 guineas from the July Sale produced Group 1 and 2 winners in America, Australia, Canada, Dubai, Great Britain and Japan and this year’s Tattersalls July Sale catalogue features the usual compelling combination of well-bred fillies and in foal mares as well as high class horses in training, all of which look set to attract plenty of interest from domestic and international buyers alike.”
