Next week's Tattersalls December Foal Sale to start an hour earlier at 10am
The auction at Park Paddocks takes place from next Wednesday
Tattersalls have announced that next week's December Foal Sale will start at 10am each day instead of 11am as stated in the catalogue.
The change is due to a lower than usual number of withdrawals from the sale, which would likely have mean later finishes than envisaged every day.
The four-day auction takes place at Park Paddocks from November 25-28. Start times for the December Yearling Sale (November 23) and December Mares Sale (November 30-December 3) will remain unchanged
Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: “There is no doubt that Covid-related changes to our selling procedures combined with full catalogues have contributed to some long days at recent sales, and we are keen to avoid this scenario if at all possible.
"The original start time of 11am for each day of our December Foal Sale reflected this year's smaller catalogue, and now that we appear to have fewer withdrawals than expected we feel it is in the best interests of all participants to start each day at 10am, an hour earlier than published in the catalogue.”
