Hills sold Shuraffa, a Shamardal mare in-foal to Muhaarar, for £11,500 and was very pleased with how the sale was handled: “It came as a surprise just how enjoyable Sunday’s sale was. The process itself was very fun and watching the bids come through live throughout the day was a thrilling experience.

“We had hoped to get a good price for Shuraffa who is in foal after being covered by Muhaarar, the sire of this year’s British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes winner Eshaada, and we were not disappointed.

“I can’t wait to get involved in the next sale and am hoping to line up some lots.”

Meanwhile, multiple Grade 1 and Cheltenham Festival-winning trainer Pipe purchased Drag Race, a lightly raced last-start winning Zoffany mare, and was equally pleased:

“I couldn’t be happier with my purchase on Sunday. This was my first experience of buying a horse with ThoroughBid and everything worked really well,” said, Pipe.

"There was a good range of lots on there and hopefully Jamie Osborne's Drag Race turns out to be a nice horse on the National Hunt circuit. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for future sales."

Will Kinsey cofounder of ThoroughBid said: “We’re delighted to have completed our second sale where we continue to have the confidence of leading trainers such as David Pipe and Charlie Hills.

“The experience those two have in buying and selling horses is second to none, so to be entrusted with their custom speaks volumes of ThoroughBid’s product.

“Plans are already underway for our third sale where we will continue to showcase the efficiency and flexibility of ThoroughBid.”
