Due to demand, breeders will again have the opportunity to offer quality broodmares in a stand-alone online breeding stock sale on Gavelhouse Plus in the lead up to the season.
Entries for stallion shares and nominations will also be accepted for the showcase which will run from 28th June to 12th July.
“In our seven years of operation there has always been a flurry of activity around breeding stock in July and good prices fetched as breeders look to finalise their plans for the season,” said gavelhouse.com General Manager Haylie Martin.
“We firmly believe this sale still has its place in the calendar for those that are logistically unable to make New Zealand Bloodstock’s breeding stock sale in June. We already have a stakes-winner in foal to Proisir confirmed.
“The bloodstock team from New Zealand Bloodstock are on board to inspect the lots and help provide notes to buyers and we are looking forward to another successful sale.”
