Race horse buying is not as simple as it may seem since it requires a lot of knowledge, research and patience. There are now a days a number of ways to buy the race horses but one of the oldest and the most effective way of buying the race horse is through the race horse auction. But before you could but the racing horses for sale at the race horse auction you must know how does the auction work and how can you get in it.
First of all, you find out about the race horse auctions in your area and find out which companies are performing the auctions. Once you figure it out, then you must check the auction date. Exactly four weeks before the actual auction, the company published the catalogue which could be on their website online or they may send it to the people who are their regulars. This catalogue consists the list of all the horses who will be available for the auction. The information about each horse is given in this catalogue and you go through the horses one by one and list down the one you are interested in. It is important that you narrow down a greater number of the horses and rank them accordingly.
The one week before the auctions, the company uploads the videos and other information about their top horses and you could visit the website to watch these and revise your list. This is true that the horse which have good record of winning are extremely expensive.
On the day of the auction, the horses are shown for any kind of flaws and the buyers check the horses. Then when the auction starts the top horses are bid first and their bidding usually exceeds the range of the many people since these increases very quickly. Once the top horses are sold then there are less numbers of the people remaining in the auction and then you can have the bid which is affordable. This is the reason why you should enlist a greater number of horses in your list so that even if some horse gets out of the range you are still able to bid on the other horse.
However, even if you do not get the horse in one auction, you must not be disappointed but must keep on looking for the upcoming auctions. Most of the auctions happen in the month starting from the December and the January. Apart from the horse auctions you can have the horse from the farm as well where these are trained.
