Tattersalls Changes October Sale Schedule

Book 1 will start a day earlier and a fourth day has been added to Book 2.

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.”
