Tattersalls is a fantastic asset to Newmarket, West Suffolk and UK Plc. It is THE place to buy and sell horses. This is a worldwide trade with buyers and sellers jetting in from around the world.
Today, is day two of a three day sale. So far sales have topped a whopping 67m guineas. That is £67m plus 67m 5 pences, a total of over £70m. And still day three to go.
Tattersalls is a significant employer in the region and supports a huge business eco system. It must be protected and nurtured.
Today I spent some time chatting to Newmarket councillors to better understand the issues facing the special place of Newmarket. It is unique and should be treated as such.
