Tattersalls and Goffs have released further changes to the schedule of point-to-point sales in December.
The Tattersalls Cheltenham December Sale, which originally had been scheduled to follow the end of the Tattersalls December Mares' Sale on Thursday, Dec. 3, will now be staged at Park Paddocks in Newmarket a week later on Thursday, Dec. 10.
Goffs UK will hold its December P2P Sale at Yorton Farm Stud in Wales on Thursday, Dec. 17.
“Not for the first time in 2020 Tattersalls and Goffs have worked collaboratively in the best interests of all concerned,” said Matthew Prior, Head of the Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales. “The revised schedule will allow our mutual clientele to take part in both sales and we look forward to hosting our first P2P Sale in Newmarket. We are aware that Goffs have an established NH Sale on the same day as our revised date, and we appreciate their acceptance that extenuating circumstances make this one-off clash unavoidable.
Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent added, “We would like to thank Tattersalls for once again working with us to find a solution that best assists the point-to-point market during this busy autumn period. Goffs received some very positive feedback after the Yorton Farm Sale on 12 November and have reacted to requests from vendors to revisit this concept on 17 December. We are grateful to the Futter and Potter families for hosting us again and we look forward to working with vendors to compile the catalogue of horses in the coming weeks.”
