The 2020 All Age Sale catalogue is now live on gavelhouse.com Standardbred.
Bidding for the Sale is set to open from Wednesday 20 May, with the first Lot closing on Wednesday 27 May.
It is important to note that bidding of the first Lot will now close at a new start time of 1pm (NZT) on 27 May, instead of the previously proposed time of 5pm.
