Why Buy A Tasmanian Yearling?

The Australian yearling sale calendar is jam-packed with choice for buyers of Australian yearlings.  With so much choice on offer, why buy a Tasmanian yearling?

For many years, a select few Victorian buyers were regular visitors to the annual Tasmanian yearling sale.  These days, the secret is well and truly out with the number of interstate and international buyers that attend the sale, growing each year.  While there are many reasons to visit Tasmania, including the great food, wine, beer and world-class golf courses, buyers visit the Tasmanian sale to purchase quality horses at bargain prices. Importantly, these affordable horses have every chance of being a future outstanding performer.

The average purchase price at the Tasmanian sale is approximately AUD$15,000. The event features a large selection of yearlings sired by quality interstate stallions, in addition to the best of Tasmania’s quality stallions.
