Entries will be limited, so it is important to get yearlings entered nice and early to avoid disappointment. 

After completing a number of successful dedicated sales in Australia and the USA last year, and delivering more than $55M in total sales and just under $2M in a single auction, Bloodstockauction.com felt that the time was right to hold its own Online Yearling Sale to support its members. 

The sales landscape in Australia has definitely changed, with astute buyers and sellers continuing to take advantage of the benefits offered by online auctions, a format pioneered in Australia, New Zealand and the USA by Bloodstockauction.com.
