APG would like to take this opportunity to advise our loyal and accomplished breeders that entries into the 2020 APG NATIONAL MIXED SALE close this Sunday 31 May.   

This year’s sales event will launch on Wednesday, July 22 and operates similarly (like last year) to an e-bay style online auction.  This format has been proven to provide the safest and most cost effective way to trade some of the elite Standardbred families available in this country.

APG is pleased to advise that the strength of entries already received across all categories of horses (broodmares, racehorses, stallions, yearlings and weanlings) looks to have built considerably on last year’s listings.

Last year’s sale produced some outstanding weanling pinhooking opportunities.  A great example of this would be lot 578 at our APG Sydney Yearling Sale which was a striking looking colt by Badlands Hanover that sold for $50,000 and was purchased for just $16,000 from the 2019 APG NATIONAL MIXED SALE.

APG has already announced it won’t place a clear-cut limit on the number or quality of the horses that will ultimately make it into the sale.  However, we do want to look after the best interests of all parties involved and therefore do not wish to accept horses that may not have a reasonable chance of finding a new home (i.e we will consider both the commercial appeal of the horse and also the vendor's expectations as reflected in their nominated reserve.)

Entry Fees, Commission Rates and Sales Dates

Entries for APG’s National Mixed Sale are now open, and will close on 31 May.

The Entry Fee is $330 per entry.

All sold lots will attract commission at the rate of 8% plus GST, whilst there will be no commission payable on passed-in lots.

The auction will run from Wednesday July 22 and conclude by the Sunday July 26.

How To Enter

Potential vendors are invited to submit the details for any potential entries by clicking on the link below, which will take you to the Online Entry form

Once accepted, APG will issue an invoice for your entry fee(s) which needs to be paid prior to 30 June.

Importantly, to ensure the smooth running of the sale, vendors will also be required to provide the following to APG prior to the commencement of the sale:

  • Signed transfer forms;
  • In the case of mares that are being sold “in foal”, a vet certificate confirming that the mare is in foal (test must be performed between 1 July and the commencement date of the sale);
  • In the case of horses that are on agistment at a stud / agistment centre, an E-mail from the stud / agistment centre confirming that they irrevocably consent to the release of the horse from their property in the event that the horse is successfully sold at APG’s National Mixed Sale (APG will provide you with a standard e-mail for you to forward to the stud / agistment centre seeking their confirmation that they will allow the horse to be released)

If vendors have any questions prior to the closing date for submitting entries, we encourage you to email or call Dean on 0459 215 333.
