The latest sales to take place at Tattersalls in Newmarket were the Guineas Breeze Up and Horses in Training Sale and they generated record-breaking numbers.
During the Breeze Up, 36 Lots were sold at £50,000 guineas or more compared to an already healthy 17 last year. The number of these that made six-figure sums was 11 and the overall sale raised a total of 5,497,700 guineas. This figure is a record-breaking amount for this category at this sale and took turnover to a total of 6,152,800 across the two days.
This is amazing news for the sale which has been going from strength to strength in the past years.
Chairman of Tattersalls, Edmund Mahony had this to say:
“The extraordinary trade at the recent record-breaking Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up demonstrated the global demand for quality breeze up two year olds and it has been encouraging to see the momentum sustained at the Guineas Breeze Up and Horses in Training Sale. We have welcomed buyers from throughout Europe and further afield to today’s sale and they have combined with strong domestic representation to produce increases in turnover, average and median as well as a record number of six-figure transactions and lots selling for 50,000 guineas or more.
“In addition to positive returns for the Breeze Up two year olds, the popular horses in training section has also achieved increases across the board and served as another reminder of the uniquely global audience consistently drawn to bloodstock sales at Tattersalls.”
