A total of 95 precocious, ready to run 2-year-olds have been selected for this year’s renewal of the Tattersalls Ascot Breeze Up Sale, which again features the £100,000 (US$128,923) Ascot Breeze Up Bonus.
There are six 2-year-old races at the Royal Meeting and a 76-day window after the sale, which means the Tattersalls Ascot Breeze Up Sale is ideally positioned for owners and trainers to target the bonus.
