Tattersalls and Goffs agree revisions to next month's point-to-point sales
Companies avoid fixture clash in busy calendar
Tattersalls and Goffs have worked together to agree further revisions to the point-to-point sales calendar to enable all participants to take part in both sales before the end of the year.
The revised schedule means that Tattersalls will now hold their Cheltenham December Sale at Park Paddocks in Newmarket on December 10 rather than December 3.
This will be followed by Goffs UK holding the December P2P Sale at Yorton Farm Stud on Thursday December 17.
This date has been vacated by Tattersalls as part of a collaborative agreement to avoid any potential clashes and, as such, Goffs UK will not be including a point-to-point section within their horses in training sale on December 4.
Matthew Prior, head of Tattersalls Cheltenham, said: "Not for the first time in 2020 Tattersalls and Goffs have worked collaboratively in the best interests of all concerned.
"The revised schedule will allow our mutual clientele to take part in both sales and we look forward to hosting our first P2P sale in Newmarket. We are aware that Goffs have an established NH sale on the same day as our revised date, and we appreciate their acceptance that extenuating circumstances make this one-off cash unavoidable."

The revised schedule means that we will now hold the #CheltenhamDecember Sale at Park Paddocks in Newmarket on Thurs 10th Dec rather than Thurs 3rd Dec.
Goffs UK managing director Tim Kent added: "We would like to thank Tattersalls for once again working with us to find a solution that best assists the point-to-point market during this busy autumn period.
"Goffs received some very positive feedback after the Yorton Farm Sale on November 12 and have reacted to requests from vendors to revisit this concept on December 17.
"We are grateful to the Futter and Potter families for hosting us again and we look forward to working with vendors to compile the catalogue of horses in the coming weeks."
