THOROUGHBID TO BREAK NEW GROUND WITH ONLINE YEARLING SALE
Aug 17, 2023 · November Yearling Sale
Monday 14th August – ThoroughBid, racing’s online auction house, will become the UK’s first auction house to hold an online yearling sale later this autumn, and offer a truly unique global bonus scheme.
ThoroughBid’s Online Yearling Sale, for which bidding is due to go live on Wednesday 8th November, will give yearlings sold the chance to win ThoroughBid’s £5,000 Every 1’s a Winner Bonus for their new connections.
In order to qualify for the bonus, the sale graduate must win on their debut Under Rules either as a two or three-year-old in a Flat race held in any IFHA member territory.
The decision to sell yearlings with the chance of winning a bonus was made after the continuing success of ThoroughBid’s popular £5,000 Point2Rules Bonus, which incentivises buyers to purchase National Hunt horses on the online platform and has generated good prices for consignors.
Entries for the ThoroughBid Online Yearling Sale close on Sunday 8th October.
CEO of ThoroughBid, James Richardson, said: “With yearling sales being such an important market within the industry, we’re delighted to announce the establishment of the ThoroughBid Online Yearling Sale, which will provide another option for consignors to sell their stock without the hassle and expense of going to an in-person sale.
“For buyers, the Every 1’s A Winner Bonus is a big carrot to dangle. It’s a unique global bonus which encourages participation across all 59 IFHA members. This sale truly means that you sell from anywhere in the world, bid from any corner of the globe and win a £5,000 bonus at tracks in 59 different countries.
“We hope that the Online Yearling Sale will be seen as a useful addition to the calendar by buyers and sellers alike. It will be very exciting to follow the progress of our graduates on the track over the coming seasons."
ThoroughBid is the UK’s first dedicated online bloodstock auction house.

The company is based and operates from Cirencester, Gloucestershire, UK.
