Looking for a Royal Ascot 2YO?

Superb Doncaster Breeze-Up Catalogue Now Online


With six Royal Ascot winners in the last six years, the Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale at Doncaster (19 – 21 April) must be the first destination for buyers looking for a 2YO to target this year’s Royal meeting and the quality 2022 catalogue is now online.

Three of the last six winners of Royal Ascot’s Gr.2 Norfolk Stakes have come from the Doncaster Breeze-Up Sale including last year’s victor PERFECT POWER. A son of the in form sire Ardad, another Royal Ascot winning graduate of this sale, Perfect Power became the sale’s latest racetrack star with his impressive victories in the Gr.1 Prix Morny and Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes, making him one of Europe’s very best 2YOs. 

Last season saw the Doncaster Breeze-Up Sale produce three Group winning 2YOs; Perfect Power, the joint sale topper TWILIGHT JET who won the Gr.3 Cornwallis Stakes and the unbeaten LIGHT INFANTRY who won the Gr.3 Horris Hill Stakes and is being aimed at the Classic 3YO races this season.

This year’s sale will once again be held over three days with the Breeze on Tuesday 19 April from noon, followed by an inspection day on Wednesday and the sale of 186 lots on Thursday 21 April from 10am. The catalogue boasts a strong sire profile with multiple entries from leading stallions including Dark Angel, Exceed And Excel, Invincible Spirit, Kingman, Kodiac, Night Of Thunder, No Nay Never, Showcasing and young sires including Ardad, Churchill, El Kabeir, Expert Eye, Harry Angel, Kessaar, Mehmas, Profitable, Sioux Nation, Tasleet, U S Navy Flag, Zoustar etc.

Some of the many highlights of the 2022 catalogue are:

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:

“This sale has enjoyed another huge 12 months with quality success after another big race win to continue its outstanding record. To start with, its Royal Ascot record is, simply put, second to none. For an annual auction of less than 200 horses to produce, since 2016; a Gr.1 Prince Of Wales’ Stakes winner, Listed Windsor Castle Stakes winner, Gr.1 Commonwealth Cup winner and three of the last six Gr.2 Norfolk Stakes winners, is a truly remarkable achievement and testament to the quality of the breezers presented by our loyal band of consignors.

“Furthermore, last season we saw the latest star to emerge in Perfect Power, who extended the sale’s Royal Ascot record to six winners in six years, before going on to claim two Group 1 races and take his place among the very best graduates this sale has produced in its 40 plus year history.

“Combine all that with the record figures we achieved in April last year, this sale is very much on an upward trajectory and that has not been lost on our ever professional vendors who have sent us another top-class line-up of 2YOs. So, our message for this year is very simple, whatever claims you may have heard elsewhere and whatever gimmicks may be rolled out, if you are looking for a Royal Ascot winner at the European Breeze-Up Sales in 2022, Doncaster is the place to find them.”
