Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up 1: Average A$184,695
At the conclusion of the 2007 Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale in England 120 2YOs had sold for 8,795,000 guineas (A$22,163,400) at an average price of 73,292 guineas (A$184,695) and a median of 55,000 guineas (A$138,600). Chairman Edmond Mahony commented: "The 2006 Tattersalls Breeze Up was a remarkable sale which completely rewrote the European breeze up record books, but this week's Craven Breeze Up has struggled to match those spectacular figures which rose nearly 50% on the previous record levels. The catalogue was outstanding and the vendors brought some very smart 2YOs to the sale but... the overall market has been highly selective. The top of the market held up well but the middle market did not mirror the amazing strength and depth we experienced at last year's sale."
