NJ Tao, Breezing
's co-founder and Chief Science Officer.
A regular breeze-up consignor under the name Shadowfax, Allen (below) returned to breezing
this year following a stint as handicapper in Qatar.
There was also some concern that the 90-minute gap between the 81 lots breezing
and the auction starting was too tight.
As a result, the sale, which mirrors the Goffs Kempton concept of breezing
on Polytrack, posted a respectable aggregate of EUR840,000 for 58 sold, led by a War Chant colt who was knocked down to Yuma Bloodstock for EUR67,000.
Explaining the process, Feerick said: "There are essentially three mediums going on at a conventional sale - 1) the potential buyer can see a video of the horse breezing
; 2) the buyer has the opportunity to watch replays of the breeze at a distance; and 3) if the buyer can't be around for the sale, he will use a third party to act for him.
