With regards to the sale, the trainers at both ends of the market are battling to get horses, at the top end there are a lot of buyers wanting the same horses and at the lower end, trainers want decent horses but cant afford them.

“We sold 27 lots less than last year, and the aggregate is up from from the previous year. There are some very nice horses coming through tomorrow and we are pleased that the live streaming online has been excellent with no breakdowns.”
