Applications are now open for the 2023 Bolesworth Elite Auctions!

We are inviting breeders to apply with details of both yearlings (Born in 2022) and foals (due to be born Spring 2023) that they would like us to consider for this year’s auctions.

The criteria for both yearlings and foals for either auction is as follows:

The direct dam of the foal must be ‘Black Type’, by which we mean eo either have competed herself at 1.50m level or above, have produced progeny competing at 1.50m or above, or be very closely related (ie full sister to) 1.50m or above performers.

The sire needs to be a popular and commercial sire.

We would like to emphasise that the reason that we are strict about these criteria is that we now have 8 years of proven data showing what foals and yearlings reach top prices, and therefore what the market wants to buy.

The entry fee for both auctions will be £495 plus VAT, and we will require a set of x rays from this calendar year for all yearlings approved by our vet in order to accept yearlings for 2023.

Full Terms & Conditions will be circulated to all successful applicants.
