Horse Sales

Key Sales throughout NSW

The two major yearling sales conducted in NSW each year are the Sydney Australian Pacing Gold Sale and the Bathurst Gold Crown Yearling Sales. Both of the sales have outstanding fillies and colts and geldings to choose from.

At the APG sale prices start at $4,000 with the most expensive horses usually bringing over $100,000. Sale prices at the Bathurst sale are generally considerably lower.

In December, NSW Standardbred Sales conduct the 2YO Ready2Run Sale at Tabcorp Park Menangle.

Annual 2YO Ready2Run Sale

The Garrards Horse & Hound Ready2Run Sale is held each December at Tabcorp Park Menangle. This year, prior to the Sale horses will be trialled over 800m and videos of the trials placed on the Ready2Run website. Trials will be supervised by Harness Racing Officials and swabs taken to ensure integrity. On sale day, the horses will be presented for auction.  First held in 2011, the sale has a proven record when it comes to successful graduates.

Australian Pacing Gold Yearling Sale

The major yearling sale company in Australia is Australian Pacing Gold. The Company conducts sales in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Perth annually between January and March.

Horses purchased through these sales are eligible for an affluent race and bonus series.
