Tattersalls and Goffs agree further revisions to Autumn Point to Point Sales schedule
Tattersalls and Goffs have worked together to agree further revisions to the Point-To-Point (“P2P”) Sales programme which will enable all participants to take part in both sales before the end of the year.
The revised schedule means that Tattersalls will now hold their Cheltenham December Sale at Park Paddocks in Newmarket on Thursday 10th December rather than Thursday 3rd December.
This will be followed by Goffs UK holding the December P2P Sale at Yorton Farm Stud on Thursday 17th December. This date has been vacated by Tattersalls as part of a collaborative agreement to avoid any potential clashes and, as such, Goffs UK will not be including a P2P section within their HIT Sale on 4th December.
Matthew Prior, Head of the Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales, said:
"Not for the first time in 2020 Tattersalls and Goffs have worked collaboratively in the best interests of all concerned. The revised schedule will allow our mutual clientele to take part in both sales and we look forward to hosting our first P2P Sale in Newmarket. We are aware that Goffs have an established NH Sale on the same day as our revised date, and we appreciate their acceptance that extenuating circumstances make this one-off clash unavoidable.”
Following these latest changes, Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:
"We would like to thank Tattersalls for once again working with us to find a solution that best assists the Point to Point market during this busy Autumn period. Goffs received some very positive feedback after the Yorton Farm Sale on 12th November and have reacted to requests from vendors to revisit this concept on 17th December. We are grateful to the Futter and Potter families for hosting us again and we look forward to working with vendors to compile the catalogue of horses in the coming weeks.”
