To mark the 50th anniversary of the sale, at the start of the 2023/’24 National Hunt season, Tattersalls Ireland introduced a €50,000 loyalty rewards scheme, whereby 10 owners of Derby Sale graduates received €5,000 to spend at the 50th Derby Sale.

Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins said: “The Derby Sale has a rich history, and each of the previous 49 editions have consistently produced impeccably bred, quality individuals from Ireland’s leading store vendors.

“This year, as we mark this significant anniversary, we’re proud to present a catalogue that is brimming with the best stores that Ireland and the UK had to offer. We made every effort to compile a catalogue that reflected the significance of the 50th Derby Sale, and I have full confidence that our 2024 graduates will make their mark on the biggest stage.”

All horses catalogued are eligible to take part in the €100,000 Tattersalls Ireland George Mernagh Memorial Sales Bumper 2025.
