TATTERSALLS IRELAND has announced the permanent appointment of current and two-time Irish point-to-point champion jockey Jamie Codd to the role of horses-in-training representative.
Codd's riding career has seen him ride 790 point-to-point winners, win the Grade 1 Champion Bumper at Punchestown on Shaneshill and more recently land the Kim Muir on Cause Of Causes and the Fox Hunters' at Aintree on On The Fringe.
Codd already had an association with the sales at Tattersalls Ireland having bid-spotted at Fairyhouse for the past three years and in the last year having also assisted with the sales at Cheltenham and Ascot.
"I am delighted to be joining the team at Tattersalls Ireland on a permanent basis," said Codd. "Since Tattersalls Ireland took over the sales at Cheltenham and Ascot, I've had the opportunity to gain a real insight into the operation of these sales.
"The venues are exciting and I am looking forward to using my knowledge and contacts to develop the sales along with the Tattersalls Ireland team. It's an exciting time for me."
Tattersalls Ireland managing director Roger Casey added: "We are delighted to welcome Jamie to the team at Tattersalls Ireland on a permanent basis.
"He has a wealth of knowledge on the pointing and racing fields and an expansive network of contacts which we firmly believe will help the on-going development of our horses-in-training sales.
"Jamie's appointment comes at an opportune time; the National Hunt and point-to-point seasons are about to get into full swing and he will immediately focus on the growth of the upcoming horses-in-training sales, beginning with the sales at Cheltenham and Ascot in November."
