Tattersalls Launches New £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus for Craven Breeze Up Sale
New £250,000 Bonus to Run Alongside £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus
Owners of two-year-olds bought at the 2021 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale look set to be rewarded with unprecedented bonuses as Tattersalls launches a new £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus in addition to the lucrative and widely acclaimed £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus scheme.
The new £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus will offer a £125,000 bonus for the first Craven Breeze Up winner of any of the six two-year-old races at the 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.
Commenting on the new £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;
“The new £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus reinforces our commitment not only to the flagship Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale, but also to rewarding owners in as many innovative ways as we can. The £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus immediately captured the imagination of owners and trainers and the new £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus further enhances the appeal of a sale which annually produces a consistent flow of high class precocious Royal Ascot two-year-olds as well as Group 1 performers throughout the year. The multiple bonuses will reward numerous owners and in addition, the prospect of an owner winning a £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus, followed by the £125,000 Royal Ascot Bonus and ultimately the £125,000 Group 1 Bonus is also very real."
Endorsing the new £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus, trainer Richard Hannon added;
“We have bought some serious two-year-olds from the Craven Breeze Up with Peter and Ross Doyle over the years and the combination of the new £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus with the £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus will make it a compelling prospect for our owners. MEHMAS springs to mind, although we will have to do better this time. He finished second in the Coventry at Royal Ascot, second in the Group 1 National Stakes and third in the Group 1 Middle Park!”
The 2021 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale will take place April 12th - 14th, with all two-year-olds breezing on the morning of Monday 12th April on the Jockey Club Estates’ watered gallop at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile Racecourse.
