Those planning on attending the Tattersalls Winter Mixed Sale at the Meadowlands on Monday (Jan. 18), or who expect to bid using the Proxibid website, are reminded of steps that need to be taken beforehand, per sales manager David Reid.
Those coming in person are asked to print and fill out the COVID-19 questionnaire available on the Tattersalls website and bring it with them to the sale. The usual COVID-19 precautions will be in place during horse inspection and during the auction, including the wearing of masks, social distancing, and hand washing.
Those planning to watch the livestream and bid using Proxibid must be sure to create a Proxibid account, and also have credit on file with the sales company. Both Proxibid sign-up and credit information is available on the home page of the Tattersalls website, tattersallsredmile.com.
The Tattersalls website will also provide a livestream of the sale.
The sale, which gets underway at noon in the Meadowlands race paddock, is highlighted by a large selection of racehorses — most currently racing — along with “Magnificent Mares” to race or breed and stallion shares and 2021 seasons.
Twelve 2021 stallion breedings have been donated by Crawford Farms, with all the proceeds earmarked for standardbred aftercare programs.
“This is maybe best described as an ‘active racehorse’ sale,” said Reid. “A significant number of horses are racing right up to sale time, with 12 in-to-go just this weekend at the Meadowlands. At last count 17 have won their last starts, either at time of consignment or afterward.”
As a service to buyers, sale past performances, which include the supplement, will be updated a final time this Sunday (Jan. 17) so they include weekend starts.
