Gavelhouse has helped hundreds of people buy and sell their thoroughbred. See just some of the success stories we have had. Remember you can send in your own.
Thank you for selling our Stallion Oneworld, we couldn't be happier with the work you have done and will certainly pass on our praise for you to others.
Our stunning looking, GR1 winning stallion Shadow Gate, is off to a very nice farm now and it's all down to a connection made via Gavelhouse. Tom Ryan from Gavelhouse did an amazing job at getting our stallion on and marketed through his site. The social media interaction from Tom and the promotion of the horse was second to none. Using print media would have cost a fortune with limited exposure, but Gavelhouse really does offer the vendor a fantastic opportunity to send their stock globally. If you have stock to trade, drop Tom a line you will be very pleased.
I just want to let you know that we have sold Esoteric through Gavelhouse. The interest we got was amazing and can't thank you enough for your effort and help. I seriously recommend this website to anyone wanting to sell a horse/s.
Hi Gavelhouse team, I wish to inform you that I have sold the 3yo gelding Zed x Hearts Are Trumps. Thank you for all you efforts and support, Rose Watson
SOLD TO MACAU - A great sale only possible with Gavelhouse. Thank you Gary & the Team for all your assistance in the sale of SMART HALO. Allan Blair, Managing Owner
Gavelhouse is a fabulous website for buying and selling horses. I used the site as my only method of advertising this year for the sale of three broodmares. To our amazement all mares sold within only a couple of weeks of listing. We are in Queensland and the mares have been sold to New Zealand and Western Australia. This range of contacts and buyers amazed me and just showed how diverse this service is and it enables people from all over to buy and sell quality horses. Absolutely fantastic customer service and it was so easy to use. I highly recommend Gavelhouse and it will be my first choice for selling horses again in the future.
I got fantastic results from Gavelhouse, the way to move forward in selling shares!
Gavelhouse is an immensely valuable selling tool! We have enjoyed tremendous success marketing yearlings, mares and stallions on the site.
Hi Gary, we have just purchased our 4th broodmare off Gavelhouse. Great website! So easy to work with, thanks Dennis Day, DVD Bloodstock.
Gavelhouse is a good way of selling horses....no need for the horse to leave the yard!!
I think Gavelhouse has great potential. Gavelhouse has reached a variety of people that I probably would not have.
* * * * * * * * 2 INTERNATIONAL STALLION SALES * * * * * * * * KEENINSKY sold to Indonesia via Adrian Clark Bloodstock and SPARTACUS sold to Australia. Thanks Gavelhouse - a truly world class facility for attracting global interest.
SOLD to Macau!!! Having used Gavelhouse to sell our 2 x trial winner, we found them most helpful in sourcing the Trial runs and including in the advertisement besides the photograph. We received numerous enquiries and Sold within 3 weeks. Will most definitely repeat this method of selling. We also enjoy the exposure our promising stallion El Hermano is getting on Gavelhouse Site.
Thanks for your service in the Sale of our horse, we will use Gavelhouse again I'm sure. Best Regards, Ian Smart
In quite a remarkable turnaround, within approximately 6 hours of listing, a chap has now met my asking price and therefore I withdraw my advert. Your company displays very desirable traits as a reference for future business. Many Thanks for our brief opportunity to use your service, All the best Keith
Thanks to the friendly and professional team at Gavelhouse for the cost effective and successful service they offer. Our beloved stallion Rusty Spur has found a super new home and we are having a great response to broodmares recently listed. Listings reach such a large number of people. Dirk and Nicci Oberholster
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the Gavelhouse site. I have just sold my Lord Of Warriors Colt to Singapore -amazing result. Couldn't have done it without you - cheers!!
I would just like to say that I am very happy with your service and minimal listing fee. Recently I sold 2 horses through your site and was pleased to receive enquiries from Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore! Thank you very much with your help in advertising the horses.
'Another Season' and her foal have found a new home in Dunedin. Thanks to Gavelhouse
Good news. Procyon is SOLD!! Thanks for your help. I know where to come and what to tell people if they need your services. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I wish you all the best in the future. Cheers Don Dickie, Trainway
Thankyou Gavelhouse! After listing my race mare 'Our Maikai' for sale on the Monday, I was pleasantly surprised to get 4 phone calls within 36 hours! I managed to sell her by the Thursday for the advertised price! Congratulations on your service; it was easy, highly professional and effective! Martin Godby
I recently listed the maiden mare Nun Better (Triple Winning) on your website, and I am pleased to report that she has been sold. The result is very satisfactory for my partners & I and we are most impressed with the outcome that Gavelhouse has delivered. In fact, we had a second buyer waiting in the wings in case the purchase didn't proceed. Many thanks Simon Brown
My filly has now been leased out thanks to Gavelhouse. I'm sure to use this site with confidence in the future. Thanks again
First enquiry has bought the mare! It's such an easy process I will use you in the future and recommend this site to anyone. Thanks for your help, so pleased.
Just to let you know that we were very happy with the ad and assistance with the sale of the Great Britain/Bankonher colt. I would recommend Gavelhouse to anybody who is looking to sell their horses. I'm also happy to let you know that he is now on his way to Perth, Western Australia.
Stallion GREAT BRITAIN sold to South Africa - Gavelhouse has succeeded in facilitating another International Stallion sale & been the platform of choice for Abderry for two other recent sales. A yearling to Western Australia & a weanling locally. Well done and thank you, Cheski Brown, Principal, Abderry Equine Services Limited
A quick thank you note to let you know we were sucessfull in placing our Stallion Lord Dane to a client of yours from Victoria. Excellent work.
I have found Gavelhouse a great marketing website for my small business LP Stallions. It is a great economic way to advertise my bloodstock to a worldwide market and audience. More and more of my clients are internet savvy these days and they appreciate using a website that appears easy to use and displays my bloodstock adds in a crisp and clear viewing platform. I have been successful via Gavelhouse in attracting new clients and buyers and would be very happy to recommend their website and the excellent service I have received so far. What I really appreciate is the personal touch that Gary and his staff provide and appreciate their feedback when both preparing my adds both prior to and after lodgement on line.
I am pleased to bring you the good news that 'Green Africa' has been sold from your site! And ironically 30minutes after the money was transferred I had another call for her! I got my full asking price and must say this is the future of horse trading! Well done!
For breeders, Gavelhouse is the best value for money for marketing your horses, I have sold both locally & internationally. I highly recommend the company for anybody who is wanting exposure without having to fork out thousands of dollars in advertising fees!! I give the company 12 out of 10 for their professional assistance and attitude. Well done Gavelhouse.
I want to thank you so much for all your help with the loading the filly's listing and the photo's and to tell you what an amazing service you provided - the filly has sold, we received an offer on New Years Eve, only 5 days after she was listed and money went through last night - I cant believe it, it was so easy. I have told so many people what a great service you personally provided and how quickly she sold and a friend who has a couple of 2 year olds that he is thinking of selling is now seriously considering selling them and listing them with you. Thanks again
I would like to thank Gary and his team for the thorough work they did on my behalf, they researched the breeding gave an opinion, which I valued, in fact the whole script was written for me, by this energetic team of keen horse promoters. To think this was done for no charge on either the placement or the script and the fact it gave me such incredible exposure to such a large range of perspective buyers in so many different countries. My sincere appreciation and I will be recommending your service
After advertising on Gavelhouse within three weeks of listing we have been successful in selling the Lonhro / Church On Sunday colt to Michael Gangemi (a trainer for Ascot Bloodstock). We received enquiries from Victoria, Queensland and WA and each enquirer had located the colt via the Gavelhouse website. There is no doubt we have been able to secure a purchaser for the colt as a direct result of listing the horse on Gavelhouse which was easy to complete to construct you own advert message and download photos etc of the horse.
I have successfully leased 'Helios' to the South Island as a racing proposition through the Gavelhouse website. It is a really easy to use website and I had a lot of interest in the horse - I will definitely use Gavelhouse again.
Thanks to Gavelhouse "Two Tones" was sold soon after listing her on their website. Sold to Australia to Patinack Farm.
After posting our horses for sale on the Gavelhouse site we sold two fillies, "Dehere" and "Lion Heart", in two weeks. The process was very simple and we had outstanding results.
After missing the broodmare sales due to an injury, we posted "Bella Rosso" for sale on the Gavelhouse site. I checked the site frequently, and the hits increased - obviously there was considerable interest. I had about three serious inquiries, including requests for more photos, and one, from Adelaide, seemed a likely buyer. Just when he pulled out, a buyer from northern Victoria phoned, offered cash, and had her picked up within two days. I was delighted to find "Bella Rosso" a good home as I wasn't in a position to breed from her just yet, and Gavelhouse offered a convenient and economical method way to sell, her especially as she was in her paddock clothes.
Within a week of her being listed on the very attractive and professional Gavelhouse, site enquiries were received from Australia, Singapore & other parts of the world,3 days later the deal was concluded and horse and purchase price exchanged. Gavelhouse is a relatively new inovation for selling horses, especially in South Africa, but it is definitely a visionary for the future. The site is easy to access and navigate, very reasonably priced and has an across the board range of horses being exposed to world wide purchasers. I cannot recommend Gavelhouse highly enough as the painful prospect of selling a valued asset was quickly changed to a pleasurable experience. I wish Gavelhouse every sucess and have no doubt they will be providing a valauble service to buyers and sellers in the racing industry. Patrick Bradley [ sad ex racehorse owner but satisfied Gavelhouse customer .
Leading South Australian Syndicators, Richard and Michelle Stafford from Sanguine Racing Services, have sold shares in 3 horses to international owner. This is what they had to say: "...who would have believed that we could secure 3 share sales from a buyer in Hong Kong, through this newly developed, exciting website. Thanks Gavelhouse".
Our Stallion 'Short Pause' has been Sold to Venezuela. Thanks to Gavelhouse, for introducing an International client...we are very happy to have this Global exposure.
It was a great result, I had three prospective lessee's applied to lease the filly, she has gone to the North Island, I trust she can do the job on the track, a great result thanks to Gavelhouse. Thank you!!
I have completed the sale of MOUNT ASPIRING to Australia and expect him to be in his new Warwick Farm stables on Monday. Thank you for your assistance and Gavelhouse's services.
We were absolutley thrilled with the opportunities that Gavelhouse has opened up for the sale of our Throughbreds, we sold our rising 2 year old Duelled/Princesse Zahra filly to a Melbourne businessman and she is being trained at a Flemington stable, this would not have happend without Gavelhouse.
Graham Richardson (Richie), a leading New Zealand Trainer placed his first advert on Gavelhouse and has successfully sold a major share of an unraced two year old colt. Without using Gavelhouse's International website, Richie would never have been able to tap into such resources and thus secure his new client who is based in Perth, Australia. Thanks to Gavelhouse and Gary's innovation, the ease of placing an advert and the International profile Gavelhouse is starting to hold within the Thoroughbred Industry, I will be using their services and facilities in the future.
The Desert King Yearling Filly has been sold. Thanks for all your help and professional approach with the listing and sale.
I would like to take this opportunity and thank you for your website generating sales leads for us. We have sold two shares and about to finalise a third. (Two from Western Australia and one from Victoria). We are only a small stable but your website has given us great exposure around Australia and Overseas.
How lucky are we to have such a quick and efficient way of displaying our valuable bloodstock. I live in Southland NZ and although we are in one of the main stock and agriculture producing provinces in NZ, and kick well above the average for breeding top racehorses, it is still hard to get world exposure like Gavelhouse is providing - well you just don't get it. Plus no commission! You do the deal yourself, so you know what is going on. We will be using Gavelhouse again soon to advertise 2 stunning yearling colts unbroken, relation and full brother to Veocitea and Orange County, Grp1 winners. So watch this space.
Just a quick note to let you know I have just sold "PARTYINTHEPARK" from the Gavelhouse site. Thanks ever so much.
While in New Zealand we contacted 3-4 studs to look at horses that we viewed on Gavelhouse. In our minds if we didn't have this site to guide us we probably may not have purchased one from there. We did purchase a 2 year old Zerpour filly, from Mr David Lees. He also gave your site a big wrap, as did the other studs we went to. So, we say thanks to you and your company.
Thank you, due to Gavelhouse, South Island Breeders Association and your great assistance I have successfully leased my filly out with a RTP. I hope to place more horses on Gavelhouse soon. It's a super way in bringing interested parties together.
I would just like to thank Gavelhouse for helping us sell 10 of our horses. The have done an amazing job, nothing is too much trouble and they keep us up to date every step of the way. I just hope the Thoroughbred community will support them if they any bloodstock to sell! as online is the way to go
FIDI CENT sold so quickly, I am kicking myself for not using Gavelhouse sooner. The site was easy to use for an Internet newbie like me! The staff are incredibly helpful in the entire loading process. What surprised me was the number & quality of responses in the short time FIDI CENT took to sell. I have made some excellent contacts & best of all - No agents fees/sales preparations/commissions. For me, they are winners. Give them a go.
Simple process. Lots of interest from all over Australia. Easy to sell. We will definitely use Gavelhouse again, particularly for tried horses.
The ownership syndicate of the stallion PUPIL would like to congratulate the very popular and successful equine trading site, GAVELHOUSE, based in Victoria, Australia, we had Pupil listed for sale through other mediums but GAVELHOUSE produced the most inquires which included countries such as; South Africa (2), Argentina, Brazil (Sth American Bloodstock Agency), New Zealand (5), Australia (multiple) and even a stud in Kenya run by Mr Joseph Muya, Pupil has finally been sold to a breeding venture in Queensland, I fully recommend this great international trading site to everyone in the bloodstock industry.
I recently advertised some horses to sell from my Stud with Gavelhouse. I found Gary and the Gavelhouse team super to deal with, the process to load stock onto the site is very straight forward and within 24 hours of the horses going on line I had interest from both NZ and overseas. I just sold one broodmare after having her listed for approximately 2 weeks. Marvelous result!!! Recommend the site for everyone and we will certainly be listing more horses with Gavelhouse as a hassle free way of advertising our stock to the world.
We are very pleased to inform you that "Yasey" has been sold!!! He leaves our stud tomorrow, bound for China. We will miss him and we hope he is successful in his new home. Thank you for all the effort you have put in to make this happen and for posting the video on your website home page. The credit goes to Gavelhouse!
I am so excited to now own Australian bloodstock. These purchases will clearly open up many options for my future breeding and selling stock. I'm thrilled to be introduced to Gavelhouse, such a beautiful platform for buying and selling horses, world class, informative and simple to use.
Thanks for your assistance with Otto and thanks for your site which has facilitated this sale
We listed our Stallion SEUL AMOUR for relocation, lease or possible sale on Gavelhouse and promptly had numerous responses which led to a variety of options for us. We were delighted to eventually establish an international sale for this horse which opened up a whole new career opportunity for the stallion, as well as giving us a valuable international connection for the future. We were very impressed at the options that Gavelhouse opened up for us, and have no hesitation in recommending Gavelhouse to people as an ideal place to advertise horses following our recent experience there.
A note to thank you and the team at Gavelhouse for the wonderful assistance you were able to give me in placing my stallion Publishing. Even though the placement was not made directly from Gavelhouse, I had a huge amount of interest in my horse both domestically and from South Africa. This interest was able to assist me in my strategy to place Publishing as I had then had options that I would not have otherwise had. I would not hesitate in placing any horse I had for sale on Gavelhouse and would recommend the site highly to any bloodstock owner. Gavelhouse quite surprised me with the coverage it obviously has.
We listed our filly by "Beautiful Crown" for sale on your website late one evening (sale price $33,000), it was sold the next morning. Your staff provided effective and friendly service, the old fashioned way. We are new to the internet so we really appreciated your help in the advertising process. Over the last few years, we have wasted a lot of money advertising in newspapers and magazines - with absolutely no results. We look forward to doing business with you again".
I would like to thank the Gavelhouse staff for their professionalism in helping me list my mare on their state of the art website. The mare was sold within a week of listing with no commission payable or middle people to deal with - just a simple transaction between buyer and seller. I recommend that buyers and sellers alike scan the website daily as it is certainly the way trade horses with a minimum of fuss. I have recommended Gavelhouse to my clients for horses they wish to sell
I think the website is very user friendly, doing great and getting a lot of views.
Roman Ruler has been sold today, through the advert displayed on your site. Many thanks for all your support and we shall definitely utilize the site again for any future sales. Tracey Benson
Thank you for your initial help, wording my advert , Cheeky has happily been leased out for 3 yrs, and would recomend your service to others with horses to Lease or Sell.
