Tattersalls Ireland launch vendor prize for the September Yearling Sale
Tattersalls Ireland are delighted to partner with Overlander to provide September Yearling Sale vendors with the opportunity to drive home in a brand-new Overlander R160 2-Stall horsebox. Widely known as the best 2 box on the market, the horse box will be presented to the vendor of the horse that wins the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes at the Curragh Racecourse on Irish Champions weekend, commencing in 2022.
The September Yearling Sale continues to go from strength to strength in the sales ring and on the racecourse. Record trade at last year’s September Yearling Sale returned a top price of £325,000, a record number of yearlings sold for £150,000 or more and a healthy clearance rate of 84%. Graduates have been performing exceptionally well on the track already this season, most notably on Irish Guineas weekend where Helvic Dream won the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup and Gustavus Weston won the Group 2 Greenlands Stakes.
Announcing the Overlander R160 vendor prize, Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins said:
“The €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes is the longest running sales race of its kind in Europe and we are delighted to announce this partnership with Overlander and to be in a position to offer our loyal vendors the chance to drive home in a highly desirable Overlander 2-Stall horsebox. The September Yearling Sale has made major advances in quality, turnover and market share in recent years’ and we aim to build on that this year by reducing the catalogue and improving the quality of yearlings on offer.
Purchasers are reaping the rewards on the racetrack however we would not be able to offer top class yearlings without the support of our loyal vendors. Introducing a vendor prize of an Overlander 2-Stall horsebox is a unique incentive for yearling vendors to send their better stock to the September Yearling Sale.”
Robbie McDonnell a Director in Overlander commented:
“The Overlander 2-Stall has gone from strength to strength and we are delighted to partner with Tattersalls Ireland and sponsor the September Yearling Sale & the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes at the Curragh Racecourse on Irish Champions weekend.”
