Date Changes For Tattersalls October
Sales company Tattersalls has decided to add a fourth day to the high profile October Yearling Sale following unprecedented demand from vendors. As a result, to ensure the sale still finishes on schedule, the influential Book 1 Sale will start a day earlier than originally planned, with a new date of Tuesday October 8. Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony commented: "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."
