EDMOND Mahony, Tattersalls’ chairmen, issued a post-sale statement. He said: “Another post-Covid Tattersalls sale with a clearance rate around the 90% mark has to be regarded as a success.

“We made the observation after the recent Tattersalls July Sale that this sort of clearance rate would be noteworthy under normal circumstances, but in the face of the multiple challenges that everyone currently faces these sort of returns are little short of miraculous.
