Welcome to our new promotional blog looking forward to this year's Goresbridge Breeze-up Sale.
The auction is one of the more recent additions to the breeze-up calendar but has quickly established itself as a source of good-value winners, some of whom prove to be out of the very top drawer.
With the help of Goresbridge and Irish Thoroughbred Marketing we will be bringing you information on the sale, profiles of buyers and vendors, news and views and a look at some previous star graduates.
Anyone can contribute to the blog. So if you are a vendor and want to show off your lots, send in pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
