Tattersalls Releases Craven Breeze Up Catalogue

Champion 2-year-old and Craven graduate Native Trail | Tattersalls

Tattersalls has released a catalogue of 163 juveniles for its Craven Breeze Up Sale, which takes place on Apr. 12 and 13 with the breeze happening on the Rowley Mile on Apr. 11. This year's graduates will have big shoes to fill, as last year's sale produced not only the champion 2-year-old and unbeaten G1 Dewhurst S. and G1 National S. winner Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), but also Group 2 winners Asymmetric (Ire) (Showcasing {GB}) and Go Bears Go (Ire) (Kodi Bear {Ire}).

Among the Group 1 siblings catalogued is a filly from last year's sale-topping consignment, Tally-Ho Stud, by its resident sire Mehmas (Ire) who is a half-sister to last year's G1 Phoenix S. winner Ebro River (Ire) (Galileo Gold {GB}) (lot 65). Among the Mocklershill draft is a daughter of No Nay Never who is a half-sister to G1 Australian Cup winner Harlem (GB) (Champs Elysees {GB}) (lot 111); a first-crop son of Sioux Nation who is a half-brother last year's GII Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint victress Twilight Gleaming (Ire) (National Defense {GB}) (lot 84); and a Zoffany (Ire) half-brother to the multiple group winning Lemista (Ire) (Raven's Pass) (lot 59). Brown Island Stables offers a Lope De Vega (Ire) half-sister to Classic winner Just The Judge (Ire) (Lawman {Fr}) (lot 144), and Longways Stables brings an Adaay (Ire) half-brother to Dragon Symbol (GB) (Cable Bay {Ire}) (lot 103), who after being disqualified from the win in last year's G1 Commonwealth Cup due to interference was runner-up in the G1 July Cup.

Daughters of Group 1-winning mares catalogued include a Showcasing filly out of the G1 Preis der Diana winner and black-type producer Penelopa (GB) (Giant's Causeway) (lot 35) and a War Front filly out of GI Alcibiades S. winner Dancing Rags (Union Rags) (lot 125). Lot 160 is a Lope De Vega colt out of Hibiscus (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), a stakes-placed full-sister to GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf winner Line Of Duty (Ire).

Kingman is well represented in the catalogue by three colts and a filly: lot 32, a son of Australian Group 3 winner One Last Dance (Aus) (Encosta De Lago {Aus}); lot 124, a daughter of G3 Nell Gwyn S. winner and G1 1000 Guineas third Daban (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}); lot 138, a colt out of Earring (Dansili {GB}), a group-placed daughter of GI Queen Elizabeth Challenge Cup winner and multiple Classic-placed Together (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}); and lot 145, a colt out of G3 Prix de Flore winner Fate (Fr) (Teofilo {Ire}), a half-sister to the champion mare Pride (Fr) (Peintre Celebre). There are also colts and fillies catalogued by leading sires like Australia (GB), Camelot (GB), Dark Angel (Ire), Exceed and Excel (Aus), Invincible Spirit (Ire), Kodiac (GB), Night Of Thunder (Ire), Sea The Stars (Ire), Shamardal, Siyouni (Fr) and Starspangledbanner (Aus). American-based sires represented, in addition to the aforementioned War Front, include American Pharoah, Distorted Humor, Honor Code, Kitten's Joy, Medaglia d'Oro, Nyquist and Speightstown. First-season sires represented include Cracksman (GB), Expert Eye (GB), Harry Angel (Ire), Havana Grey (GB), James Garfield (GB), Kessaar (Ire), Saxon Warrior (Jpn), Sioux Nation, Smooth Daddy and Tasleet (GB).

All lots are eligible for the £250,000 Royal Ascot/Group 1 Bonus and the £15,000 Craven Breeze-Up Bonus.

Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said, “2021 was a benchmark year for the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale with the unbeaten European champion 2-year-old Native Trail landing a huge Craven Group 1 Bonus when winning the National S. and two additional Group 2-winning juveniles further enhancing the global reputation of the sale. The sale has been strongly supported by Europe's leading breeze-up consignors and the combination of an outstanding catalogue and unrivalled bonuses makes the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up a compelling prospect for both domestic and overseas buyers.”
