New Race & More Money For UK Tatts Millions Series
Also in the UK, Europe's leading bloodstock auctioneers Tattersalls announced a new £250,000 (A$525,000) race over 6 furlongs will be added to the Tattersalls Timeform Millions races (open to graduates of Book 1 of the 2008 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale on October 7-10). The race (at Newmarket's Rowley Mile Racecourse in September 2009) will be known as the Tattersalls Timeform Millions Sprint. The addition will increase the number of races in the Tattersalls Timeform Millions series to 4 with total prize-money climbing to £2,300,000 (A$4.83m). Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony commented: "The 6 furlong Tattersalls Timeform Millions Sprint will add an entirely new dimension to the Tattersalls Timeform Millions & will ensure unrivalled opportunities for owners of yearlings purchased at Book 1 of our October Yearling Sale. Prize-money levels continue to be a major concern & we are delighted to be able to create a series of races which maximise the opportunities for owners to run for huge prize-money, while keeping their costs down as much as possible."
