The catalogue for the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up, which will take place Monday 12th – Wednesday 14th April, can be viewed online at www.tattersalls.com and will be available from Tattersalls and Tattersalls Representatives from Monday 8th March. 168 high quality juveniles are catalogued for Europe’s premier sale of two-year-olds in training which has produced a remarkable 49 Group and Listed winners in the last five years.
All 168 lots are eligible for the new £250,000 Craven Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus which will offer a £125,000 bonus for the first Craven Breeze Up winner of any of the six two-year-old races at Royal Ascot. An additional £125,000 bonus will also be paid to the first Craven Breeze Up winner of any of the 15 European Group 1 races open to two-year-olds, including the all-age Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York and the Group 1 Prix de l’Abbaye de Longchamp. This is in addition to the lucrative and widely acclaimed £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus, which has rewarded the owners of horses bought from the Craven Breeze Up Sale with more than £250,000 in bonus prize-money since its inception in 2019.
The catalogue features twenty two-year-olds out of Group or Listed winning mares including the FRANKEL colt out of Group 1 Prix Jean Romanet winner RIBBONS, and the DUBAWI colt out of the Group 3 winner STELLAR PATH. Also out of top class racemares are US-bred colts by ARROGATE and UNION RAGS out of the Grade 1 winners FUNNY MOON and CARELESS JEWEL respectively.
Additionally there are own or half brothers and sisters to a further 32 Group or Listed winners catalogued, including two exceptionally well bred sons of SIYOUNI. Oak Tree Farm consigns a half-brother to the Grade 1 scorer WESTERN ARISTOCRAT, whilst Longways Stables offers a half-brother to the Grade 2 winner and Grade 1 runner-up MRS SIPPY. The catalogue also features the ACLAIM half-brother to Group 1 Sussex Stakes winner HERE COMES WHEN consigned by Ardglas Stables and the half-sister to the Group 2 winner and Classic placed LAUGHING LASHES, by exciting first-season American sire MASTERY, coming from Mocklershill.

Equally impressive is the exciting group of first-season sires with their first crop of two-year-olds with ACLAIM, ALMANZOR, ARDAD, CARAVAGGIO, CHURCHILL, COTAI GLORY, ECTOT, EL KABEIR, GALILEO GOLD, HIGHLAND REEL, PROFITABLE, RECORDER, RIBCHESTER, TIME TEST and ULYSSES joined by a strong contingent of USA-based contemporaries including ARROGATE, GORMLEY, MASTERY and PRACTICAL JOKE.

The largest British-based team comes from Malcolm Bastard, who has a team of eight to represent him.
In addition to all lots being eligible for both the new £250,000 Craven Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus and the £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus, buyers looking to benefit from additional incentives will be well catered for with nine lots entered in the hugely popular £20,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus.
