ONCE again, we are indebted to every vendor and each purchaser for their trust and support of the Sapphire Sale.

European buyers, particularly from Italy and Poland, have made a contribution and the network of Tattersalls Ireland’s international agents played a significant part in this sale.

It was very apparent as we were inspecting yearlings in the spring that there was genuine enthusiasm for our newest yearling sale and we are in a position now to work on it and move it forward for next year.

So, as the year closes, we can reflect on a year of so many achievements with the Goresbridge Breeze-Up Sale smashing records, headed by a historic top lot of €520,000 and a record number of six-figure lots and a best-ever average of €38,155.


The September Yearling Sale continued in the same fashion setting its own records with 70 lots selling for €50,000 or more as well as a record median and an average and turnover just below 2021’s records.

These results prove that when we are provided with the best horses we can deliver. Our hope is that these results and our improved facilities will continue to convince more consignors that they can and will achieve the very best results in the Tattersalls Ireland sales ring.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the team for their hard work and dedication throughout the year and to ITM for their continued support.

We can now look forward to following the careers of our new graduates and get back on the road searching for the class of 2023.
