The inaugural Tattersalls Ireland-Goresbridge Breeze-Up will be shown live on Racing TV this Thursday May 23rd.

Live coverage featuring breeze footage and interviews with leading breeders, vendors and buyers will be shown on the main Racing TV channel from shortly before 12pm until 1.30pm.

2019 is the first year that Goresbridge have teamed up with Tattersalls Ireland to host the Tattersalls Ireland-Goresbridge Breeze-Up at the new location of Fairyhouse Racecourse and Tattersalls Ireland.

Horses will breeze close to the stands rail in catalogue order on Thursday May 23rd. On Friday May 24th the sale itself will take place at Tattersalls Ireland, beginning at 10am.

Tattersalls Ireland CEO, Matt Mitchell, commented: "This year is about establishing the sales new identity and location in people's minds and providing the best service possible in our new surroundings.

"We will then be seeking to build on this year's foundation and have ambitious targets with regard to the growth of the sale.

"I think the new Tattersalls Ireland-Goresbridge partnership is a brilliant opportunity to enhance the quality of the horse coming through the sale based on the facilities on offer and provide both vendors and buyers with plenty of opportunities."

Irish Thoroughbred Marketing CEO, Charles O’Neill, commented: "We are very pleased that the inaugural Tattersalls Ireland-Goresbridge Breeze-Up will be shown live on Racing TV.
