Owners of two-year-olds bought at the 2022 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale will once again be rewarded with multiple bonuses as Tattersalls will offer the £250,000 Tattersalls Craven Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus for the second year running in addition to the lucrative and widely acclaimed £15,000 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Bonus scheme.

The £250,000 Tattersalls Craven Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus will offer a £125,000 bonus for the first Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up winner of any of the six two-year-old races at this year’s Royal Meeting, with £100,000 being paid to the owner and £25,000 to the vendor of the horse. An additional £125,000 bonus, with the same £100,000/£25,000 split, 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.   

European Champion Two-Year-Old NATIVE TRAIL won the inaugural £125,000 Tattersalls Craven Group 1 Bonus last year when producing a dominant performance in the Group 1 National Stakes at the Curragh.

Unbeaten in four starts culminating in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes, the Charlie Appleby-trained colt was a 210,000 guineas purchase by Godolphin at the 2021 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale and added the £125,000 Tattersalls Craven Group 1 Bonus to a £15,000 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Bonus won on his debut. Consignor Oak Tree Farm collected a £25,000 share of the £125,000 prize for NATIVE TRAIL’s victory and had previously purchased him with Margaret O’Toole for 67,000 guineas from Kildaragh Stud at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.

Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented:   

“The £250,000 Tattersalls Craven Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus reinforces our commitment to rewarding owners with multiple bonuses. The introduction of the bonus last year immediately captured the imagination of owners and trainers and we were delighted that European Champion Two-Year-Old NATIVE TRAIL was able to collect the £125,000 Tattersalls Craven Group 1 Bonus for Godolphin. The bonuses further enhance the appeal of a sale which annually produces a consistent flow of top class two-year-olds, with last year’s graduates also including Group 2 winners ASYMMETRIC and GO BEARS GO.

“Running alongside the ever-popular £15,000 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Bonus, the multiple bonuses reward numerous owners and as NATIVE TRAIL demonstrated, the prospect of an owner winning multiple Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Bonuses is very real."   

The 2022 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale will take place April 11th - 13th, with all two-year-olds breezing on the morning of Monday 11th April on the Jockey Club Estates’ watered gallop at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile Racecourse.
