Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale to relocate to Tattersalls in Newmarket
The 2021 Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale is to be relocated from its base in Fairyhouse to the Tattersalls UK based headquarters in Newmarket.
The sale has been relocated to Tattersalls in Newmarket owing to the continued uncertainty surrounding COVID related issues in Ireland, most notably the difficulty in guaranteeing that international buyers will be able to visit Ireland without having to undergo lengthy periods of quarantine. The three day sale will now take place a week earlier than originally scheduled, with Part I taking place on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th and Part II taking place onThursday 16th September, reflecting a similar move that has been made after an agreement between Tattersalls and Goffs which will see the Orby Sale also taking place at the Tattersalls Park Paddocks site on the earlier than scheduled date of 24th - 26th September.
Commenting on the change of location for the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale, Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins said;
"The decision to relocate to Newmarket has not been taken lightly, especially having had to relocate the September Yearling Sale in 2020 but, given the disruption we experienced at the Derby Sale, it is now clear to us that we cannot rely on a ‘bubble’ which would allow overseas buyers to visit Ireland without onerous quarantine requirements. The September Yearling Sale traditionally attracts large numbers of overseas visitors and at present Britain, while also being the main source of our buyers, is considerably more accessible than Ireland.
We are hopeful that this will be the last change to our 2021 sales calendar and have taken the decision at this early stage to provide clarity to our loyal vendors prior to entries closing next week. We are confident that relocating the sale to Park Paddocks will again allow Tattersalls Ireland to achieve our constant objective of providing a vibrant market by attracting the widest and most diverse group of buyers that we possibly can.
The relocated 2020 Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale returned record breaking figures with a top lot of £325,000 and more horses selling for £150,000 or more than ever before. Vendors have already been supporting the sale this year with their better quality stock and we look forward to another successful renewal of the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale at Park Paddocks in Newmarket.”
All yearlings catalogued for the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale are eligible for the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes at The Curragh in September 2022. Vendors not wishing to sell yearlings at the relocated sale will be accommodated in the Tattersalls Ireland Flat Sale which takes place at Fairyhouse on November 13th and 14th.
