FOLLOWING an announcement by the Irish Government last Tuesday (January 26), Tattersalls Ireland has confirmed changes to its upcoming February National Hunt Sale. The Sale will now be held at Fairyhouse on Tuesday, March 9, 2021.
Due to the continued Level 5 Covid-19 lockdown, it is not legally permitted to host sales during this time, but Tattersalls are hopeful that these restrictions will end on Friday, March 5, as stated by the Irish Government.
Entries have now closed for the February National Hunt and the catalogue will be available to view online this week.
Announcing the postponement, Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins, commented: “It is unfortunate that we have had to make yet another change to the dates for the February National Hunt Sale, but we are constantly having to respond to the evolving situation and to the latest Government guidelines.
“Although matters are out of our control, we will continue to monitor the situation and look at any and all options as matters evolve to provide the best possible opportunities to sell and buy.
“We have consulted with Goffs to ensure that any changes to our sales schedule are in harmony with their plans to ensure we deliver a workable solution for all of our mutual clients.”
