Because of an increase in the number of horses entered, Tattersalls has made changes in its schedule for the October yearling sale in England. The Book 1 portion of the auction will start a day earlier than originally planned and a fourth day has been added to Book 2.

Book 1 will be held Oct. 9-11 and Book 2 is set for Oct. 15-18. Book 3 will take place Oct. 19 as scheduled.

“We have received almost 15% more entries for our October yearling sale this year, which is a huge tribute to the sale, but does present challenges as to how best to accommodate the greater numbers,” said Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony. “At present, we expect Book 2 to number in excess of 1,000 lots, which is more than can be cataloged over three days. The extra day in Book 2 will allow us to catalog very manageable numbers on each day and provide the optimum viewing time for prospective purchasers in all three books of the October yearling sale.”
