TATTERSALLS Ireland are pleased to confirm the September Yearling Sale will return to its original scheduled dates of Tuesday, September 21 and Wednesday, September 22, whilst remaining at Park Paddocks in Newmarket. Part II will now take place on Wednesday, the second day of the September Sale, following on immediately after Part I.
The September Yearling Sale lotting and boxing is now underway, with 500 quality yearlings catalogued for Part I and just over 100 yearlings catalogued for Part II. All yearlings catalogued will be candidates for the €300,000 Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sales Stakes, which takes place at the Curragh on Irish Champions Weekend. As well as the big pot for purchasers, the vendor of the winning horse will also drive away in an Overlander 2-stall horsebox.
Graduates of the September Yearling Sale have been excelling on the track this season, with ‘Helvic Dream’ winning the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh. A number of impressive two-year-old winners were sourced at last year’s sale, most notably ‘Hermana Estrella’, who claimed Group 3 victory on debut, as well as ‘Go Bears Go’, who was narrowly beaten at Royal Ascot but later powered home to win the Group 2 Railway Stakes at the Curragh. ‘Beauty Inspire’ remains unbeaten and put in a fine effort on Saturday to win the Group 3 Anglesey Stakes for Ger Lyons and Colin Keane.
Commenting on the September Yearling Sale, Simon Kerins CEO of Tattersalls Ireland, said: “We are pleased we are able to offer certainty surrounding our dates for the September Yearling Sale and confirm the sale will return to its historic dates of the third week of September. The decision to relocate the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale was to provide clarity to our vendors, while providing a vibrant marketplace and we believe that this option delivers the best chance of achieving that goal. However, we look forward to a strong September Yearling Sale returning to Ireland in 2022.
“The sale has exceeded expectations in recent years and is truly going from strength to strength in all aspects. The team at Tattersalls Ireland have worked hard this year to secure a better quality yearling and we look forward to releasing what looks to be one our best catalogues ever assembled.”
