The prayer yelling sale is used to be called in legislating sale.

We'll give them a hundred thousand euro bonus on top of that as opposed to sell follows immediately after with one hundred thousand euro challenge race connected to that over six foot the millions over seven so that backs up with a real good bunch of commercial dealings over two days the lovie sell the. The premise are two flagship sales. The year that very very important very important to the industry and you mentioned that the news or the relaunched million races. Explain why you felt. Now is the right sunscreen initiative. When i think being being frank event is because last year was not a success in fact it was an enormous disappointment. It didn't hit the heights. it's hit in recent years. It was on an upward trajectory in the years leading up to last year with regular every year was a sentence it's all price of six average And it was doing real last year. It fell very slats. It wasn't it wasn't a good sale of we sat down and thought about what we need to do to rejuvenate. The cell was relocated last year to the uk and one of the usp's what is the shielding sale. The sales is killed. Paddock's bringing people to island for many of the best feelings in on interview author every year. So we did. A lot of a lot of a lot of reviewing chatting to leading vendors leading buys some significant players in the market. Said you need to look at something to make the be stand as again and so we talked at length we looked at various different options and eventually decided that the best thing to do. We have something really. The imagination. europe's richest chiro race is only open to be graduates and as one leading greatest enemy. It's not that people will think might go or i'd like to go. They'll have to come was his view. And that's going to be all hope. It certainly called the imagination of vendors and purchases event supported as as a very very cattle beside profile superb. There's some very good pedigrees in them. We're delighted to have them and the bias. So far The likes of tom he was doing with. Amanda marches in the united kingdom jacob west in the united states tic- in germany phillips vicky in scandinavia scandinavian player and australasia. And japanese agents. Have all said. It's really cool the imagination so we're hopeful that's what happens. If people come to kill their products for the two days of be safe at the two days of sportsman's. I i know one thing. I've seen a lot of the horses on a like what they say. There's a lot of very good potential. And i think a number of vendors have slightly tweaked what they sent to us senators. Who they think you're gonna make quality two year olds and then turn onto be kasich three year olds and that's how pretty good. I'm we touched on last year silva obviously we can't talk about twenty twenty without bringing a covert just went to get your thoughts on how coveted impacted gulfs in gaza. Can possibly your life person-years. Well i i. I think the first thing is you know we have. I was going to say no different. We're we're better off than most people. So i think you. I think everything's relative and we caveat we're going to say thank people have had all over the world a horrendous time with curved we all know people who have had covert Some of us know people who have died from covered so it's been a very traumatic time remedy global so in in context in our own world. It's been very challenging and particularly challenging for sales held in on and each government around the world is taking their own routes to navigate their way through the covered. Pandemic and on unknown decided. I think one government is going to rise a one government's role but the government To the very much more conservative approach and so it made it very difficult or more difficult. I should say to wholesales on for a period of time. Probably for all the right reasons than i did in england.
