As part of Pencarrow Stud’s annual stock reduction another seven quality broodmares are currently entered in gavelhouse.com’s most recent fortnightly auction.
“We are obviously racing and retaining fillies and therefore need to continuously be mindful of our numbers and offer some stock to market,” said stud manager Leon Casey.
“Since the start of this year we have sold all 10 of the mares we’ve listed for pleasing prices.
“We expect the latest draft to sell well come Monday night as they represent some of our best families and have been well-mated.”
Each Lot has comprehensive descriptions and photo studies, taken by Angelique Bridson, on their listing pages with a brief rundown on each below:
