All Age Sale Cancelled

With the government’s announcement that the country is to go into lock-down due to the COVID-19 virus, NZB Standardbred has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 All Age Sale, scheduled to be held at Karaka on Monday 4 May.

With the recent developments that affect the entire country it is clear that we cannot operate public auctions at this time” commented Director and Operations Manager, James Jennings.

It is important to provide clarity for vendors and buyers during this period of uncertainty, with the intention of having a viable alternative to sell weanlings and other stock within the usual trading period on our subsidiary online auction platform gavelhouse.com.

Making the call now will allow a timeframe for adaption to the platform and for promotion of the online sale.”

At this stage, gavelhouse.com will go ahead with their upcoming auctions, however there will be some factors to bear in mind as the COVID-19 situation is progressing rapidly.

The next online auction for gavelhouse.com Standardbred will be 27 May with entries due by 20 May.
