This Sunday’s APG Melbourne Autumn Sale is APG’s final sale of the season. As such, it represents the last chance for buyers to purchase an APG eligible yearling this year.

Dozens of photos of the Melbourne Autumn yearlings have been added to the APG website over the last few days, and can be viewed by clicking here. The photos include a number of stunning types, and is evidence of the quality that will be available to buyers on Sunday.

The great news for buyers, is that the majority of yearlings in the Melbourne Autumn Sales have been prepared by the same preparers that prepare for the APG Melbourne Sale. As such, they have been prepared by skilled preparers who understand the importance of properly feeding, exercising and educating their yearlings, to ensure that they have the best possible start in life, and are ready to go straight from the sales into a professional training environment.

The other good news for buyers is that the majority of the catalogue features yearlings by well regarded, proven sires. Indeed, nearly two-thirds of the catalogue has been sired by stallions that are currently ranked in the top ten on the two-year-old, three-year-old and/or all-age sires’ tables.

So the bottom line is, if you are heading out to the Melbourne Autumn Sale on Sunday, you should expect to find well-prepared, well-presented yearlings, by highly respected stallions, out of mares that belong to good, winner producing families.

The sale commences at 12 noon. Any horses that are passed in on sales day will have their reserves published on the APG website, and will be available for sale at their reserve price during the 14 days post sale by contacting APG on (03) 5275 1999.
