At the conclusion of the May Store Sale, Tattersalls Ireland CEO Matt Mitchell said; 

"The original May Store Sale date was May 14 and in that short of time to now, the impact of Covid-19 has been enormous. It is positive that we have been able to hold the sale and to enable the market to function. Trade was selective with buyers adapting a cautious approach.

We now look forward to the August National Hunt Sale taking place next week with the Select Part I on Thursday 27 August and Part II on Friday 28 August. The sale starts at 11am each day."
