GLOUCESTER STANDARDBREDS

“Striving For Excellence In Serving the Breeding Industry”

Gloucester Standardbreds conducted its first yearling sale in Western Australia in 1991 in order to provide an outlet for Western Australian breeders to promote and market their yearlings locally.

Unlike the major yearling sales in the Eastern States which run select yearling sales, Gloucester Standardbreds provides yearlings with a philosophy of there being a horse for everyone’s budget.

Currently WA yearling prices average around $12,000 with a range from $3000 to $60,000 although the alltime WA record price was $90,000.

All yearlings sold in the Gloucester Standardbred Yearling Sale are eligible for the $100,000 WA Sales Classics (one for colts and one for fillies) and more than 95% of the yearlings sold locally are eligible for the lucrative Westbred Bonus Scheme. The list of champions sold through the Western Australian Yearling Sale is extensive and headed by the Australian Harness Horse of the Year Preux Chevalier 1:54.3 ($791,331), WA Oaks winner Artemis Belle 1:56.1 ($359,559) and WA Golden Slipper Stakes winner Aikido Whitby 1:55.2 ($270,328).
