2YOs Set to Breeze Up Next Week

13 October 2023

Breeze Ups take place at Te Rapa on 16 & 17 October

Breeze Ups for the world’s best sale of two-year-olds are set to take place next week on Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 October at Te Rapa Racecourse.

All two-year-olds entered in New Zealand Bloodstock's Ready to Run Sale have the opportunity to breeze on the same turf track at Te Rapa Racecourse over two consecutive days.

Commencing at 10am each day, there will be a total of 178 heats filmed and timed from the near the 600m mark to past the winning post. Further footage will be recorded of all lots mounted in the Parade Ring before their breeze up to give buyers a 360 degree view of each horse on the day.

To assist buyers, NZB will be recording various details during the Breeze Ups including timing the last 200m of their gallop, penetrometer readings of the track, an outline of the weather conditions and a wind anemometer reading against each Lot.

This data will be displayed on the NZB website against each horse for easy analysis and comparison and will be available alongside the video clips of the Breeze Up and Parade Ring footage by Friday 20 October.

All prospective buyers are welcome to attend the Breeze Ups, with the full schedule and order of heats available to view here.
