New Zealand is renowned as a trading nation, with a strong focus on primary industries such as agriculture. When it comes to producing livestock we have a natural advantage, and breeding thoroughbred racehorses is no exception.
New Zealand Bloodstock is the principal thoroughbred auction house in New Zealand, with the majority of sales conducted at the company’s world-class Karaka Sales Complex, situated to the south of Auckland.
In late January each year, approximately 1500 yearlings go under the hammer at the National Yearling Sales, attracting buyers from all around the globe.
As well as our National Yearling Sales Series, New Zealand Bloodstock conducts a number of successful thoroughbred auctions each year offering a range of quality stock including Ready to Run Two-Year-Olds, tried and untried racehorses, broodmares and weanlings.
