The NZB Buying Experience

New Zealand Bloodstock is renowned for delivering a buying experience that is recognised around the globe and this will be at the core of NZB Standardbred sales.

Hailed by international buyers as a leader in terms of hospitality and sales venues, our warm welcome and exceptional bloodstock on offer is what keeps them coming back. In addition to the extensive services that NZB provide, we are poised to offer an enhanced buying experience to the standardbred market at the 2019 National Standardbred Yearling Sale.

Karaka Sales Centre

With open spaces for inspecting horses and in close proximity to the bidding action, you will be in the hub of the buzzing atmosphere.

Once the gavel falls, every aspect of your bloodstock interests can be managed in the one location with NZB’s Airfreight, Insurance and Finance divisions.

NZB Airfreight have over fifty years of experience flying horses around the world and have offices located in both New Zealand and Australia. Your bloodstock can be flown to as far as the USA and Europe.

The insurance team have a long established history of protecting the interests of racing and breeding establishments, while the finance division is the perfect stage for investors to realise standardbred investments.

NZB Finance is offering facilities at the Yearling Sale for pinhooking on approved purchases with the aim of reselling at NZB’s 2019 Ready to Run Sale of 2YOs, as well as a lease-to-purchase on quality fillies for future breeding prospects.

The iconic Karaka Sales Centre and facilities at the Canterbury Agricultural Park provide the ideal backdrop for the annual yearling harvest. Along with the quality horses, classic kiwi food and beverages are just a few highlights of the hospitality on offer this summer.

NZB can recommend hotels and serviced apartments for your stay in Auckland and Christchurch with negotiated preferential rates and special discounts at participating properties. A complimentary shuttle service for international buyers will be available from selected accommodation.

Rewarding New Zealand buyers for the investment made in purchasing from our Sales, NZB is pleased to offer inter-island travel rebates to assist with flights and accommodation costs when travelling to/from Auckland and to/from Christchurch.
