DUE to the continued Covid-19 Level 5 restrictions, Tattersalls Ireland have no choice but to postpone the February National Hunt Sale to a later date. The Sale is now scheduled to take place at Fairyhouse on Wednesday, April 7.
It is hoped that by this time, restrictions will have eased allowing the sale to proceed at Fairyhouse, whilst also utilising the Online Bidding platform and Telephone Bidding to assist purchasers who cannot attend. Entries have now closed for the February National Hunt Sale and the catalogue is available to view online.
Announcing the postponement, Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins commented: “It was hoped that we would be in a position to hold the February National Hunt Sale in March and we have been planning as such since our announcement earlier this month. It is disappointing that we have been forced to reschedule the sale yet again, but with the current scale of the pandemic and the continued Level 5 restrictions, it is necessary to do so.
“We have received feedback from vendors, who understand the situation we are facing, but all have a common objective, to sell their stock as soon as it is safe to do so. We hope that this revised schedule gives some clarity to our clients and we thank them for their patience and understanding during these extraordinary times. Rest assured that we will work tirelessly to provide the best possible opportunity to sell and buy as soon as possible.”
