The Tattersalls Ascot & Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales along with the Point-to-Point Authority (PPA) are delighted to announce their sponsorship as Title Sponsor of the National Point-to-Point Awards Dinner and Dance.
Ascot and Cheltenham Sales are synonymous to the point to point fraternity and the recent acquisition in 2015 by Tattersalls, Europe’s Leading Bloodstock Auctioneers, has seen both venues make progressive strides in the quality of horses offered.
The famous Berkshire venue of Ascot has, since 1947, been a consistent source of horses sold to race between the flags. The sales are rich in the history of UK pointing and over the past 72 years have witnessed many champions pass through its ring and welcomed generations of point to point trainers and owners.
The demand for high class young NH prospects that have shown their ability in point to points has seen an increase of trainers and owners in the UK specialising in this market. Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales have built a reputation as the leading auction house to sell young prospects with form. The last 12 months has seen record breaking prices at Cheltenham for UK point to pointers of up to £220,000 for Tom Lacey’s Interconnected and at the recent February Sale Garry Clermont realised £150,000 for Fran Nimmo and Charlie Poste.
Richard Pugh Director of Horses in Training Sales commented “We are delighted to be the official Title Sponsor of the prestigious National Awards Dinner and Dance. It is a special evening which highlights the very best of point to pointing in England, Scotland and Wales throughout the season. It is a perfect fit to thank our vendors and purchasers for their continued support at both Tattersalls Ascot and Cheltenham Sales”.
To compliment Tattersalls Title Sponsorship, Tattersalls Ascot & Cheltenham will also sponsor the Leading Point to Pointer Owner Award. We also look forward to unveiling a new Tattersalls Ascot Graduates Point to Point Championship for horses running during the current season.
