The World's Greatest Sales Complex
New Zealand Bloodstock Ltd is first and foremost New Zealand's premier thoroughbred auction house, and one of the leading thoroughbred auction houses in the world.
The centrepoint and highlight of all New Zealand Bloodstock's activities is the annual National Yearling Sales Series. In January/February each year we auction around 1,500 of the very best of New Zealand's superior yearling crop.
During Yearling Sales time our Karaka Sales Complex becomes the number one destination for the world's most astute and successful thoroughbred buyers, owners and trainers. Many of the greatest racehorses ever to grace the tracks of Australasia and Asia have been purchased through our auction ring.
New Zealand Bloodstock's Karaka Sales Complex is the most impressive, 'state of the art', and practical auction facility in the world.
