Tattersalls Ascot £100,000 Breeze Up Bonus to continue for 2020
Tattersalls Ascot have announced the £100,000 Ascot Breeze Up Bonus for two-year-old graduates that go on to win at Royal Ascot will continue in the same format for the 2020 renewal of the sale.
The £100,000 bonus will be open to two-year-old graduates of the Ascot Breeze Up Sale, with an 80/20 split between the owner of the Royal Ascot two-year-old winner and the vendor of the horse offered at the sale.
The bonus has proved to be a realistic incentive and saw four two-year-old graduates take their chances in two-year-old races at Royal Ascot this year: FLAMING PRINCESS, LORELEI ROCK, ROPEY GUEST and SUMMER SANDS who have all subsequently won or been placed in black type races.
The £100,000 bonus not only caught the attention of owners at the Ascot Breeze Up Sale but also focused Breeze Up consignors buying at the Ascot Yearling Sale. Some notable pinhook successes include Flaming Princess (pictured above), who was purchased for £20,000 at last year's Ascot Yearling Sale and resold at this year's Breeze Up Sale for £60,000 by Danny Benson's Dunsany Stables.
This year's Ascot Yearling Sale takes place next Tuesday from 11am.
