View Full Version : Who do you buy from...

Where do you buy your bloodstock from? Is it the private sale that gets the best deals or the auction sales? (I personally am very interested in turf bred runners.)

I get any of mine from private sales. (On a side note-I love the turf pedigrees too!) I've just been able to find great deals that worked for me via private sale. That being said, the auctions are a great source too. Particularly with the economy being what it is. People are getting very nice horses for some pretty amazing prices via the auction ring. :D

I got my mare privately, but in this market go to an auction. Especially for turf horses! They are a hard sell and you will get a fair (or better) price. Private sellers can tend to stick to a number more, but at sales most horses are there to sell and if the seller wants too much, the horse will not get sold....and then you can go and try to make a deal afterwards when the seller is a little softened up.

Thank you for the advice. Are there any auctions in particular that will have more turf horses, or should I just keep my eyes peeled?
