Tattersalls To Cease Operations At Ascot Racecourse

Park Paddocks will host the Ascot July and Ascot November Sales | Tattersalls

Tattersalls will no longer hold sales at Ascot Racecourse beginning immediately, the company announced on Wednesday. The final sale at the venue under the Tattersalls banner was the Ascot June Sale, which took place on Tuesday, June 6.

Both the Tattersalls Ascot July Sale on July 18 and the Tattersalls Ascot November Sale on Nov. 9 will be moved to Park Paddocks in Newmarket and retain their dates on the calendar. Entries are now being taken for the Tattersalls Ascot July Sale, which has been renamed the Tattersalls Summer Sale. The relocated sales will be conducted in guineas, with a vendor commission of 5%, in line with all Tattersalls sales held at the Park Paddocks complex.

Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said, “We have enjoyed our seven-year association with Ascot Sales and would like to thank all the loyal vendors and purchasers who have contributed to some memorable moments in that time, as well as the support team at Ascot Racecourse. We will continue to serve this sector of the market with mixed sales at our Park Paddocks base in Newmarket in addition to the market leading mixed and online sales which we already stage throughout the year.

“Just as with the Tattersalls sales at Ascot, the relocated sales will continue to cater for all categories, both Flat and National Hunt, with the added advantage that we can also accept mares in foal and foals, which was not an option at Ascot. Vendors and purchasers will also benefit from the outstanding facilities at Park Paddocks and the lowest commission rate in Europe.”
