The Dubai Racing Club and Goffs are delighted to announce details of the 2023 Dubai Breeze Up Sale catalogue which is now available online and features 73 world class two-year-olds from the leading Breeze Up consignors in Ireland and the UK.

The inaugural Dubai Breeze Up Sale has already produced eleven individual winners across Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Ireland and the United Kingdom, and among them are Labeling who is a winner and Group 1 placed in Japan and Mr Raj, a winner in Dubai and placed last weekend in the UAE 2000 Guineas.  This year’s catalogue looks set to reap further rewards for buyers with a catalogue of outstanding individuals and a sire profile that includes powerhouses American Pharoah, Bolt d'Oro, Constitution, Curlin, Ghostzapper, Good Magic, Gun Runner, Hard Spun, Into Mischief, Justify, Kingman, Medaglia D’Oro, No Nay Never, Not This Time, Sea The Stars, Speightsown, Tapit, War Front, Zoustar, as well as exciting first season sires such as Catholic Boy, Masar, Too Darn Hot, Ten Sovereigns and Yoshida.


Speaking about the first renewal of the sale, Sheikh Rashid bin Dalmook Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Racing Club said: 

“We are delighted to welcome buyers, consigners, and bloodstock agents to the first renewal of the Dubai Breeze-Up Sale, held in association with Goffs after a very successful inaugural auction in 2022. The catalogue contains carefully selected specialist horses that serve the underlying vision of this unique sale in the region.

Thanks to the leadership and vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, we aim to be the best at what we do. We will continue our efforts to assist them passionately in this sport.

We always believed that the Dubai Breeze-Up Sale offers potential buyers a unique opportunity to purchase young horses sourced from various farms and bloodstock sales worldwide based on studies of their attributes and pedigrees and with varieties that meet various needs and expectations. It offers potential buyers from the region select runners that save them the hassles of travelling and shopping around and offers them select runners at competitive prices in a venue so close to numerous vibrant racing centres.

The catalogue features outstandingly bred individuals; many of whom are by some of the world’s leading stallions and are related to horses who thrived in this region. This bunch of young horses feature great conformation and soundness. They have undergone basic training and are ready to pay back prospective buyers, and this week we will have the pleasure of seeing them in action during the breeze, which will take place on our track at Meydan Racecourse.

Commenting on publication of the catalogue, Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said:

“The Dubai Breeze Up Sale in association with Goffs achieved some of the strongest results of any Breeze Up Sale in 2022 and the inaugural sale has already produced impressive results for buyers with eleven individual winners in five countries and several Group placed horses. 

Buoyed by the success of year one, the Breeze Up consignors went to the world’s leading yearling sales with this year’s Dubai Breeze Up firmly in their sights and our selection team led by Tom Taaffe and Nick Nugent has worked with them to compile a catalogue of unrivalled quality that will appeal to all Middle Eastern and international buyers attending the Dubai World Cup.

It is an honour for Goffs to conduct the Dubai Breeze Up on behalf of the Dubai Racing Club and I wish to extend my thanks once again for the trust placed in the Goffs service by HH Sheikh Rashid bin Dalmook Al Maktoum and his team whilst we salute the vison of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in adding this sale to the iconic Dubai World Cup Meeting.  We look forward to building on the success so far and to a spectacular renewal of the Dubai Breeze Up Sale at Meydan next month”.
