Bolesworth Elite Auctions is delighted reveal the full 2020 yearling collection which we believe to be one of our most spectacular line ups to date. The pedigrees speak for themselves, however our ethos of only selecting youngstock with World Class “black type” dams (either elite performers in their own right to 1.45m level and above or with close relations that have performed to a similar or higher elite level) in the pedigree as well as incorporating the highest performing sires makes for a truly inspiring collection of horses.
Bolesworth strives to act as a pioneer for the UK Sport Horse Breeding Industry. British breeders and vendors are now producing horses specifically for these sales providing reassurances to buyers that they are accessing top quality performance horses. Over the last 12 months, graduates from the first auction in 2015 are achieving success in Young Horse classes all over Europe, including representation at the World Young Horse Championships at Lanaken and are showcasing their ability to emulate the performance promised by their parentage.
Said previous Bolesworth Elite Auction purchaser, William Whittaker: “As a buyer I would always look to buy in the UK. If we are able to keep buying good quality horses in the UK it incentivises breeders to keep improving and breeding op quality horses. This will give us the strong foundation to build a strong and sustainable market to keep us in touch with the continent.”

Said 2020 vendor Nick Ward: “We are relatively new to the breeding world, which came about as my daughter Emily had several mares which she competed at the top level, when they retired, we wanted to emulate and improve on their performance so created our breeding programme. The Bolesworth Elite Auction platform is a fantastic way for us reach the best buyers. One of our foals was a top lot at the 2019 Foal Auction so we are hoping our three yearlings in this auction produce a similar result.”
Said Billy Twomey, Irish Olympian:” I rode both the sire (Je T’aime Flamenco) and Dam (Tinka’s Serenade) of Flamenco’s Serenade who is a lot in this year’s auction. Both had multiple Grand Prix wins around the globe with Tinka’s Serenade taking me to Olympic Games and World Championships. It’s great to see her producing such fantastic offspring from world class sires.”
