The remaining 2020 Tattersalls Ireland sales have been postponed to December after the Irish government moved the country to Level 5 COVID-19 restrictions on Monday evening. The November National Hunt Sale will be held on Dec. 12-14. The November Flat Foal & Breeding Stock Sale, including a yearling section, is now set for Dec. 16, and the Tattersalls Cheltenham December Sale will be conducted on Dec. 17. The three sales were originally slated for Nov. 9-13.
“In these uncertain times we must plan as best as we can for further sales and ensure we provide the most vibrant marketplace possible for our clients,” said Tattersalls Ireland CEO Matt Mitchell. “We trust that the increased Level 5 restrictions for the next six weeks will meet the government's objective and allow us to host our remaining sales in December.”
