Newmarket moves card after bloodstock worries

NEWMARKET has switched its card featuring the £500,000 Tattersalls Millions 2yo Trophy and the £300,000 Tattersalls Millions 2yo Fillies' Trophy to October 1 from October 7 after concerns raised by the bloodstock industry.

The BHA haveallowed the move after the bloodstock industry had voiced displeasure at the original date affecting time individuals could spend at Tattersall's October Yearling Sale before attending the inaugural Future Champions' Day on Saturday, October 8.

Future Champions' Day, which features the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes, the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes and the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes, is unaffected by the changes.
