Change of date for Cheltenham January Sale
The sale will now take place on February 16
The Tattersalls Ireland Cheltenham January Sale will now take place at 1.30pm on Thursday, February 16 at Cheltenham racecourse.
Originally scheduled to take place after racing on Saturday, January 28, the new date is just over two weeks later than initially planned.
Richard Pugh, director of horses-in-training sales for Tattersalls Ireland, commented on the change of date:
"In 2016 we moved the January Sale to this equivalent date and it worked extremely well for us so this is not an unprecedented move - it is a proven one.
"We are committed to ensuring that these sales continue to bring the appropriate mix of quality and quantity which serves vendors and purchasers best and we feel that deferring the sale to February 16th achieves this."
