Tattersalls will conduct a second breeze-up sale in 2007 in England. The new auction will be held May 4, which is the day before the two-day Newmarket Guineas Meeting, and will be named the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale.
Tattersalls will aim to catalogue between 125 and 150 2-year-olds for the new sale. The horses will breeze adjacent to the Rowley Mile Racecourse on the strip of ground used for Tattersalls' principal breeze-up auction in April. The under tack show is scheduled for May 3.
"Having established the Tattersalls breeze-up as Europe's premier 2-year-olds in training sale we felt that the time was right to stage a second sale and Guineas weekend provides the perfect focal point for a new breeze-up sale," said Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony. "The impetus for the new sale has come not only from the spectacular sale ring results, but also from the racetrack achievements of the sale graduates.
Entries for both 2007 Tattersalls breeze-up sales should be made to Gavin Davies by Dec. 8 of this year.
