Commenting on the 2020 Tattersalls February Sale, Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: “The Tattersalls February Sale continues to be a source of high quality breeding stock and horses in training with the dam of last year’s multiple Group winning 2yo A’ali being a prime example as is Dramatic Device, a 20,000gns purchase at last year’s February Sale, who subsequently sold for 220,000gns at the Autumn Horses In Training Sale. “Along with the 2yos and yearlings on offer, this year’s February Sale looks certain to attract the usual diverse mix of domestic and international buyers who have made the Tattersalls February Sale such a consistently popular fixture.” The Tattersalls February Sale starts immediately after the TBA Stallion Parade which begins at 11.00am next Thursday, whilst the second day will commence at 10.00am on Friday.
