It’s under 1 month now until the start of the various breeze-up sales so if you are interested in having a racehorse for the season ahead then please make contact with Richard.
The breeze-up sales allow owners to buy unraced 2-year-olds which might only be weeks off making their debuts. The horses have been broken in and ridden up to a point where most are ready to gallop and show what ability they have.
Richard will see every horse ‘breeze’ or gallop on a racecourse and will consider their ability, action and temperament in their piece of work. He will then produce a list of what he likes against their pedigrees before inspecting the individuals conformation and talking with the vendors who have trained them up to the point of sale. Once the inspection has been completed and depending on the client’s wishes, Richard would then have a number of horses professionally vetted.
