Industry Areas at Sales

The two chapters of the New Zealand Bloodstock Standardbred Yearling Sales will see Industry areas available for all members of the industry to utilize.

This year the NZB Standardbred Yearling Sales will be held at Karaka Sale Complex (Feb 17-18) and at the Canterbury Agricultural Park (Feb 19-20).

As has been the case for many years, the well-respected North Island Breeders tent will still be in place at Karaka, headed by Cathie Shaw.

Renowned for its welcoming environment, the tent is an area for vendors, preparers, buyers, trainers, syndicators and potential owners to meet and network, with easy access to the sale ring.

In Christchurch the Harness Racing Industry Hub will be located outside of the main sale area, but close by to the action, to also provide an area for all industry participants to network and communicate.

Available in the industry areas will be representatives from the Breeders Associations, New Zealand Bloodstock, Harness Racing New Zealand and the Sires Stakes Board.

There is also an opportunity for any industry members to display any flyers or brochures at a table in the tents, and have a base from which to discuss any business during the sale and parades.

So be sure to pop in and see the industry related groups for information on ownership, syndications, Sires Stakes series, breeding matters.

And enjoy an impartial space to meet with your potential clients in a friendly and welcoming environment.

If you would like more information on how you can display your brochures or for further information, please contact:
