Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale Moves To Newmarket


Tattersalls's Park Paddocks | Tattersalls

In light of Ireland's widespread 14-day quarantine requirement for visitors, Tattersalls Ireland will stage its September Yearling Sale on Sept. 21 to 23 at Park Paddocks in Newmarket rather than its Fairyhouse headquarters.

“The decision to relocate the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale to the Tattersalls headquarters in Newmarket has not been an easy one, but the sale traditionally attracts large numbers of overseas visitors and at present Britain, while also being the source of many of our buyers, is significantly more accessible than Ireland,” said Tattersalls Ireland Chief Executive Officer Matt Mitchell. “The primary objective at Tattersalls Ireland since the outbreak of the global pandemic has been to deliver sales which combine the minimum of disruption with the optimal conditions for both vendors and purchasers alike. We are confident that, bearing in mind the prevailing COVID-19 related restrictions in Ireland, this difficult decision allows us to fulfil this objective and to provide as vibrant a market as we possibly can.”
