Tattersalls Ireland, including their sales at the Ascot and Cheltenham venues, have announced their provisional sales fixtures for the 2018 calendar. As announced previously the sales calendar at Fairyhouse will see the introduction of a two-day sale in May dedicated to three and four-year-old stores. The November Flat Foal and Breeding Stock Sale, still in its infancy stages, has also been extended by a day and remains the first dedicated flat foal and breeding stock sale in Europe, continuing to expand the ever-increasing flat portfolio at Tattersalls Ireland. The Cheltenham January Sale in recent years has been postponed to February due to adverse weather conditions impacting on entries and with this in mind the final date for this sale will be confirmed in due course. The Ascot Breeze-Up Sale will retain its traditional slot as the first Breeze Up Sale in Europe. The sale will start a day later in the week in 2018 to facilitate Easter Monday.
