Revised Date For Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales
Tattersalls Cheltenham wish to update clients in relation to their upcoming Sales schedule for 2020.
The April and May Sales will not now take place in 2020 owing to the Covid-19 restrictions which have halted both the UK and Irish National Hunt and Point to Point seasons.
In noting the press release from the IHRB recently which indicated a likely 'enhancement' of the 2020-21 Autumn season Tattersalls will now schedule a Sale on Friday 23 October attached to the Cheltenham 'Showcase Meeting' after racing in the Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales Arena.
Commenting on the revised date, Matt Prior, Head of Cheltenham Sales commented;
'We intend to reintroduce the Tattersalls Cheltenham October Sale as we at Tattersalls acknowledge the difficulties faced by our clients in these challenging times and understand the importance of holding a sale in a select environment to facilitate the inevitable increase in quality horses at this time. Select Sales of this type at Cheltenham have long lead the way for Vendors and Purchasers alike and we hope that this sale coming earlier in the season than has been the case in recent years will afford vendors in particular the opportunity to return to normality as early as possible.'
The remaining Autumn Sales will go on as scheduled.
