Breeze Up Consignors, offering breaking and pre training services.

A&N Bloodstock is owned and managed by Antonio and Nikki. It was set up in 2020 and has already had great success both in the sales ring and on the track. Based on the Curragh with excellent facilities including a walker, lunge ring, outdoor arena, indoor arena, turn out paddocks and easy access to the Maddenstown gallops, the Old Vic, etc. 



From the handful of horses they sold in their two seasons consigning, A&N Bloodstock has seen great results. The two horses they sold in 2020 both won. ‘Oh Say’ was very consistent in Ireland and won on his last start, before being sold on to America. He has won his only start to date over there. 

‘Coulthard’ was also very consistent in Ireland, finishing third in a Group 3 on just his second start. He too was sold to America and has won two races from two starts to date. 

From the 2021 group of breezers; ‘Fast Response’ has been flying the flag. She has won three races from seven starts and finished 4th, beaten a head in the Harry Roseberry Stakes at Ayr. She’s been very consistent as a 3 year old, placing 4 times and winning her last 2 races.

‘Shut Up Michael’ was a very close third on debut in a competitive maiden and was subsequently sold to America off the back of that run. He has won two races over there.

From their 2022 graduates, their first runner was a winner. Lady Beano was very impressive on debut, winning just one month after being sold at Goffs UK Breeze Up Sale in a very professional manner. 

Molly Weasley also won very impressively on just her second start, winning by 7 lengths in France. She is now a winner of 2 races.

Zahir Zulema won very comfortably on debut in Italy. 

Listed Winner! Fast Response provides us with our first stakes winning graduate. We bought her at Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sale for just £7,000 and re sold her at Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale for 13,ooo guineas. She has now won over £129,000 in prize money and is rated 104. 

Kingdom Of Riches was an emphatic winner on just his second start, after finishing a very good 2nd on debut at Ascot on King George Day. After his win Ralph Beckett said he could now be set for a tilt at Group targets!
