Tattersalls Launches £15,000 Craven Breeze Up BonusThu 10 January, 2019
Tattersalls is to launch an all-new £15,000 Bonus Scheme exclusively for horses purchased at the 2019 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale which takes place April 15th – 17th.
Similar to the widely acclaimed £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus, participating owners will receive a £15,000 bonus if their 2019 Craven Breeze Up purchase wins a Class 2, 3 or 4 two year old Maiden or Novice race in Britain or an ‘Open’ two year old maiden in Ireland. The cost to enter the £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus will be a single payment of £1,000 and the number of qualifying British and Irish maiden and novice races is expected to number around 300 races.
The new £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus will run alongside the hugely popular £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus scheme which has already rewarded owners with well in excess of £3 million in bonuses. All two year olds, sold, bought in or failing to meet their reserve at the 2019 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale will be eligible for the £15,000 bonuses.
Commenting on the new £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony commented;
“The £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus has been inspired by the enormous popularity of the £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus and will make Europe’s premier two year olds in training sale an even more compelling fixture for owners and trainers alike. Winners of £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonuses will routinely collect around £20,000 in prize money for winning their maiden and in some cases more than £50,000. The £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus scheme has been so well received since its inception and the £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus reinforces our commitment at Tattersalls to encourage racehorse ownership by boosting prize money.”
Leading Breeze Up consignor John Cullinan who sold Group 1 winner BRANDO (GB) and dual Group 2 winning two year old MEHMAS at the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up added enthusiastic support saying:
“Well done to Tattersalls. I know that the October Book 1 Bonus has brought more owners and trainers to Book 1 and it is wonderful that Tattersalls has extended the scheme to the Craven Breeze Up Sale. Winning serious prize money at maiden level is incredibly important and the prospect of landing a £15,000 bonus is a massive incentive for owners to target the Craven Breeze Up.”
Trainer Ed Dunlop further endorsed the £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus saying;
“We were thrilled when we won the first ever £25,000 Tattersalls October Book 1 Bonus with GLOBAL APPLAUSE (GB) and we will be doing our best to win the first £15,000 Craven Breeze Up Bonus. Tattersalls Breeze Ups have been kind to us with TRIP TO PARIS (GB), CONTRIBUTER and RED VERDON all Tattersalls Breeze Up purchases and the prospect of winning a £15,000 bonus makes the Craven Sale more enticing than ever.”
