THOROUGHBRED DAILY NEWS - Goresbridge Breeze-Up Moved To Newmarket

Published 2020/07/10


The Tattersalls Ireland Goresbridge Breeze-Up Sale has been moved to Newmarket as a result of continued quarantine restrictions for people traveling to Ireland. The sale will remain on its original date of July 24 at Park Paddocks, with the breeze taking place down the road at Newmarket Racecourse on July 22.

Tattersalls Ireland Chief Executive Matt Mitchell said, “The team at Tattersalls Ireland are doing everything possible to stage a successful breeze-up sale and by holding our Goresbridge sale in Newmarket it allows all purchasers to attend the sale at the leading breeze-up sale venue in Europe without the imposition of the travel restrictions currently in place in Ireland. We are taking every precaution to make the sale the safest environment for our staff and clients and strict proven protocols will be in place. Live Internet Bidding, which has proved extremely successful already at Tattersalls, will be available to all purchasers who cannot attend the sale in person as well as telephone bidding on the day of the sale.”

The sale was traditionally staged at Gowran Park before an association with Tattersalls Ireland beginning last year saw it moved to Fairyhouse and its accompanying sales grounds.
