Osarus stages all- weather breeze-up today

FRENCH auction house Osarus breaks new ground today when hosting the first French breeze-up to be staged on the all-weather.

The breeze-up takes place at 9.30 on Pornichet racecourse, which is located on the côte d'Amour, and selling starts at 2.30pm.

A total of 48 two-year-olds have been catalogued, including those from the last crops of Anabaa and Big Shuffle and the first crops of Literato, Falco, Dragon Dancer and Linngari.


Champion Stakes winner Literato sired his first winner earlier this month when Literalia, his first runner, scored at the first time of asking La Teste le Buch.

Osarus last hosted a breeze-up in 2010. Staged at La Teste le Buch, the auction saw 14 of 43 offered sell for a total of €199,000 and average of €14,214.
