Nine-time Group One winner Avantage (Fastnet Rock) fetched a whopping $4.1 million when selling to Tom Magnier of global breeding giant Coolmore via Gavelhouse Plus in September 2021, establishing a world record for any horse sold online.

Savabeel mare Yearn (NZ) was offered on Gavelhouse Plus by Lupton Bloodstock in the inaugural National Broodmare Sale in 2021. She was purchased for $195,000 by Ben Kwok’s Lionrock Bloodstock.
