Buyers looking for horses in training with smart form will have plenty to choose from with the potential highlights including the promising three-year-old GLENTANEOUS who boasts a Timeform rating of 91p following an impressive win on his second start for Brian Meehan. The well-bred son of GLENEAGLES is out of a sister to the joint Champion European older horse YOUMZAIN and to the Group 1 winner and dual Classic runner-up CREACHADOIR.
Other eye-catchers include the progressive four-year-old DARK PINE, rated 103 by Timeform following wins on both his starts for David Loughnane, and Shadwell Estates’ HURAIZ, a smart performer for Mark Johnston who placed in the Group 3 Sirenia Stakes at two and has a current Timeform rating of 104. Horses-in-training offered by Juddmonte Farms are always much sought after and amongst their consignment is the high-class BUGLE MAJOR. Placed in the Listed Prix Lyphard in November and runner-up behind the Group performer and two-time Listed winner MAGNY COURS on his most recent start, BUGLE MAJOR holds a Timeform rating of 108.

Commenting on the 2021 Tattersalls March Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;
“The addition of the Tattersalls March Sale to our 2021 sales calendar came in response to the COVID-related disruption to the February Sale and we have a catalogue which has all the ingredients to appeal to the customary mix of domestic and international buyers. Strict COVID protocols will continue to be in place, but we are looking forward to welcoming registered participants to Park Paddocks for the March Sale, and those unable to attend in person will as ever be able to use our Live Internet and Telephone Bidding platforms.”
