With New Zealand Bloodstock’s Karaka May Sale having to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the decision has been made to hold a quality weanling only sale in its place on Gavelhouse Plus in June.

With the sale running under NZB terms and conditions, the weanlings offered at the National Weanling Sale will be eligible for the lucrative Karaka Million Series featuring two $1 million races available for graduates as two and three-year-olds, plus the $100,000 CollinsonForex Karaka Cup for the duration of their career. 

Entries for this sale will open after the South Island Sale and are due on Wednesday 10 June, the auction launches on Thursday 11 June and bidding will run through until 5pm on Sunday 21 June.

The National Weanling Sale will be open to all vendors and allow those who normally trade at the Karaka May Sale an opportunity to trade stock within a timely manner.

Further details about each of the NZB sales will be released in the coming weeks. If you have a high-profile horse you would consider auctioning on Gavelhouse Plus, contact Haylie Martin +64 22 637 8127 or email to discuss your options.
