“Following last year’s record sale and another good year on the track, we were inundated with entries for 2018 and, as a result, the catalogue has increased in size reflecting the quality of entries received. The catalogue has certainly taken a step forward in 2018.

“This is Europe’s best Breeze-Up for 2YO winners and has also become a leading outlet for buyers looking for Royal Ascot horses. We will be visiting buyers around the world in the coming weeks to spread that message and look forward to welcoming an international audience to Doncaster on 9 and 10 April."
