The inaugural MGAS Bloodstock Horse-In-Training Sale will be held on Wednesday 11 December at 12h00 in the back parade ring at Turffontein.
With over 90 horses catalogued, Gabby Soma is elated and describes it as ‘an incredible turnout’ for their first sale, which is proving popular with some smart innovations.
“We have reduced the owner’s and trainer’s expenses by not charging an entry fee as well as providing transport for local horses. We are also selling horses in absentia. I believe that this is one of the first times this has been done. For these horses a video as well as a veterinary certificate will be available on the day,” he confirms.
Horses will be at the sale by 09h00 for viewing.
As with any horses-in-training sale, payment is due on fall of the hammer. A card machine will be available as well as options for eft / cash payment – that is unless credit has been granted.
Supplementary entries will be accepted up until 12h00 on Monday 9 December. All inquiries to [email protected] or on mobile 076 724 0585.
