NEWS: Tattersalls Ireland ready to stage 'Cheltenham' sale on Friday
on 30 October 2020
Up to 20 horses will be offered for sale but purchasers must inspect them in advance

TATTERSALLS Ireland will host a ‘Cheltenham’ sale of approximately 20 point-to-pointers next Friday in Fairyhouse and, while the horses will be in the sales ring, purchasers must make an appointment now to inspect the horses in advance as they cannot attend the sale in person.

Matt Mitchell, CEO of Tattersalls Ireland, said: “Our protocols are very much aligned with the way in which livestock marts operate. Vendors can bring horses to us and we will have vets here to inspect them, as normal. A video of each horse and a vets’ certificates will be posted on our website.

“The first hurdle to be cleared by prospective purchasers is to fill in the medical form on our website. Then you need to make an appointment with us to view the horses here. Purchasers cannot be on-site for the sale itself. The sale will be broadcast live online and bids can be made either through our LiveBid internet platform or by phone.”

Mitchell says the small catalogue allowed Tattersalls Ireland to have horses on-site. He added: “English-based buyers have probably seen a lot of these horses as stores and they can also ask someone they trust in Ireland to come and look at them.” The initial entries include:

Carrols Cottage, 4yo g. by Mahler, winner at Dromahane, consigned by Philip Fenton.

Gallow Ford, 5yo g. by Westerner, two wins, consigned by Colin Bowe.

Gibberwell, 4yo g. by Getaway, Wexford maiden hurdle winner, consigned by Brian Jordan.

Ginto, 4yo g. by Walk In The Park, winner at Tattersalls, consigned by Gordon Elliott.

Gringo D’Aubrelle, 4yo g. by Saddler Maker, winner at Loughanmore, consigned by Donnchadh Doyle.

Free Handshake, 4yo g. by Zambezi Sun, placed second at Loughanmore, consigned by Brian Hamilton.

Heather Rocco, 5yo g. by Shirocco, winner at Umma House, consigned by John Neilan.

Indigo Breeze, 4yo g. by Martaline, Thurles bumper winner, consigned by Gordon Elliott.

Magical Orla, 4yo f. by Flemensfirth, second in a Tipperary bumper, consigned by Barry Fitzgerald.

My Immortal, 4yo g. by Shantou, winner at Ballycrystal, consigned by Cormac Doyle.

Passion View, 5yo m. by Califet, winner at Tattersalls, consigned by Peter Flood.

Rathnure Rookie, 5yo g. by Notnowcato, second in Kilbeggan bumper, consigned by Richard Rath.

Routine Excellence, 4yo g. by Getaway, winner at Tinahely, consigned by Colin Bowe.

Further entries will be accepted up until Monday 2nd November.

This week, Goffs UK and Tattersalls Cheltenham announced changes to the schedule of autumn point-to-point sales.

The revised schedule means that Goffs UK will now hold its November point-to-point sale at Yorton Farm Stud on Thursday, November 12th.

  • Goffs UK November Point-to-Point Sale at Yorton (traditional sale held at Yorton Farm Stud, Powys) on Thursday, November 12th
