In line with Government guidelines relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tattersalls has produced a set of safety protocols ahead of its first breeze-up of the season, the Craven and Ascot Sale in Newmarket on June 25.

As previously announced, the sale will be restricted to those attending in a professional capacity. All those planning to attend are asked to familiarise themselves with the protocols for both the sale and the breeze, and are required to complete a Medical Declaration Form, which should be returned to Tattersalls well in advance of the sale.

Both the protocols and the Medical Declaration Form can be downloaded in full from the Tattersalls website.

Commenting on the required procedures, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;

“We are all acutely aware of our responsibilities to the health and safety of all those attending sales at Tattersalls under the current circumstances and the Protocols and Medical Declaration Forms will ensure that those attending the Craven and Ascot Breeze Up Sale can do so with confidence.

“We are looking forward to staging the first live sale of the 2020 European Breeze Up season. There have been many challenges in the past few months, but not only are we confident in the environment and format for the combined Craven and Ascot Breeze Up Sale, we are also confident that the reintroduction of live internet bidding and telephone bidding will be add a new and important dimension for buyers.”
