Tattersalls Ascot Yearling Sale switches to Park Paddocks for 2020
Owing to the ongoing challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic this year's Tattersalls Ascot Yearling Sale has been relocated to Park Paddocks in Newmarket.
The auction will be held on its original date of Tuesday, September 8 and all lots will be offered subject to the Tattersalls conditions of sale. The auction will be conducted in guineas.
Matthew Prior, head of Tattersalls Ascot sales, said: "With yearling inspections ongoing it was important to be able to provide our vendors with some clarity and a clear road map in what has been a period of uncertainty.
"By moving the Tattersalls Ascot Yearling Sale to our headquarters at Park Paddocks we are in a position to do so."
Graduates who shone on the track last year include the Redcar Two-Year-Old Trophy winner and Middle Park Stakes third Summer Sands, Group 2 Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte scorer Shadn, the Listed-winning fillies Flaming Princess and Flippa The Strippa as well as Bettys Hope, who landed the £250,000 Weatherbys Super Sprint.
All Lots will be eligible for the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes held at Newmarket's Rowley Mile Racecourse.
