The draft brings together a terrific selection of quality yearlings by a wide variety of proven and popular sires including in form sire So You Think, who has three in the consignment.

“This draft would not be made possible without the continued support of some great clients who continue to back us in,” said Rob Carlisle.

“I would also like to thank the team at home, who have put their hearts and souls into getting these horses to sale. They have done a fantastic job and should be very proud of the way these horses are presented.”
