Before we continue, for those of you that don’t know, a ‘Breeze Up’ sale differs from a normal sale because the buyers get to observe the horses being galloped or ‘breezed’ over a short distance, whereas at a regular sale they only get to observe the horses walking around the parade ring.
This adds a whole new dimension to the sale because buyers don’t have to just rely on the horse’s looks, conformation and pedigree, they also get to see the horses actually run.
We will once again be operating our Tattersalls Tour on 16th April where one of our expert guides will take you behind the scenes at this world-famous auction house. You will learn all about the history of the sales and they will share with you their expert knowledge on what to look out for when picking a winner.
And there have been plenty of them since 2012 – take a look at the below list of past Group 1 Winners that were bought and sold at the Craven Breeze Up Sale to find out who they were, what they won and how much they sold for.
