Tattersalls And Turkish Breeders Are Shoulder to Shoulder For Earthquake Victims

The aim of the sale to help the victims of the 6 February earthquake disaster that resulted in the death of more than 50 thousand people in Turkey and Syria and the war in Ukraine. Studs and farms participating in the campaign marketed one or more nominations of some stallions in their stocks through Tattersalls’ online sales.

In the sales organized under the name of the charity online auction on February 20-21, the nominations of 79 stallions – in different numbers – were put up for sale. There was a demand for all stallions and the nominations of 31 stallions, which reached the reserve price, were bought for £238,600 in the second day of the sale. After the online auction the evening and the morning of February 22, a further £120,000 was released in sales of multiple nominations that had been donated.

Turkish horse owner and breeder Emir Alkaş bought a nomination of Showcasing (Oasis Dream-Arabesque/Zafonic), which reached the highest price with £35,000 pounds. The nomination fee of this stallion is £45,000 in 2023. Another Turkish breeder, Serhat Ürküt, paid £3,800 to buy a nomination of Armot (No Nay Never-Hestia/High Chaparral).

As BOSPHORSE media, we would like to thank all the attending farm officials and the bidders but especially Stephen Byrne, Oliver St Lawrence and Tattersalls.
