This is the time to get your horses entered into the next catalogue. Entries are open from the day after the previous catalogue has closed. You can enter a horse at any time, from anywhere. Entries close on the day before the catalogue is released.
Each catalogue is launched the day after entries close. Interested buyers have seven days to do their due diligence in researching pedigrees, inspecting horses and having vettings completed.
Buyers have the full week that the catalogue is online to bid. Final bids will then be taken on each lot at individual times – one minute apart – starting from Lot 1 at 7pm on the final day of the auction.
