Owing to huge demand for places in the October Yearling Sale, in particular Books 1 and 2, Tattersalls has taken the decision to add a fourth day to Book 2 of the October Yearling Sale and to start Book 1, Europe's premier yearling sale, on Tuesday 8th October, a day earlier than originally envisaged. Book 2 of the October Yearling Sale, which is expected to number around 1,000 lots, will now begin on Monday 14th October, while Book 3 will take place on Friday 18th October as scheduled.
Commenting on the date changes, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;
"The Tattersalls October Yearling Sale is the preferred option for British and Irish breeders and the demand for places is a massive tribute to the sale. It was our intention to have three days for both Books 1 and 2 but, as last year, Book 2 will need to be a four day sale to accommodate the number of entries. The same format at the 2012 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale produced unprecedented levels of turnover and we are confident that the date changes are in the interests of both vendors and purchasers alike. The extra day in Book 2 will allow us to catalogue very manageable numbers on each day and provide the optimum viewing time for prospective purchasers in all three books of the October yearling Sale."
The dates for the 2013 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale will now be as follows:
Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Book 1, featuring the £1,300,000 Tattersalls Millions: Tuesday 8th October - Thursday 10th October
Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Book 2, Europe's largest yearling sale: Monday 14th October - Thursday 17th October
Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Book 3, Friday 18th October
Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Book 4, Thursday 31st October/Friday 1st November
