Tattersalls is to sponsor the Listed Diana Trial at Baden-Baden Racecourse in Germany. The nine furlong contest for three-year-old fillies will take place on Saturday 20th May.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said:

“Tattersalls is delighted to sponsor the Listed Diana Trial at Baden-Baden, a race which is an important stepping-stone to one of the most significant races in the German calendar. Tattersalls has a history of selling some of the finest German-bred foals, yearlings, horses-in-training and broodmares and our sponsorship of the Tattersalls Diana Trial underlines our commitment to the German racing and breeding industries as well as reinforces our long association with Baden-Baden Racecourse.”

Stephan Buchner, CEO of Baden Galopp added:

“We are very happy that Tattersalls, one of our most loyal partners, has expanded the collaboration with us and will support the Diana Trial during our spring meeting. This race is a perfect preparation for the three-year-old fillies and Tattersalls is a perfect match for it.”
