Commenting on the catalogue, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;  


“The Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale has a long established reputation for producing top class performers at all levels of the market and last year’s Ascot Group 2 winner TRUESHAN, bought for 31,000 guineas, is another fine advertisement for the sale.  This year’s Guineas Breeze Up has been very well supported by the leading consignors and features two-year-olds which will appeal to a cross-section of buyers, alongside a number of high class proven performers.”
