Commenting on the 2023 Tattersalls July Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;
“The Tattersalls July Sale has an extraordinary record not only for producing high class horses in training, but also broodmares of the very highest quality on the international stage. The dam of leading Australian three-year-old filly Amelia’s Jewel is the latest example of the quality to be found at the sale, and this year’s Tattersalls July catalogue features the usual compelling combination of well bred fillies and in foal mares, high class horses in training and significant consignments from leading owner-breeders, all of which look set to attract plenty of interest from domestic and international buyers alike.”
