APG’s 2019 sales results were incredibly strong, with our Melbourne, Sydney and Perth Sales all achieving record
sales averages, whilst Brisbane fell just short of its 2017 record.

As per the table below, on an overall basis, sales averages across all APG Sales were up by an impressive 17.7%
on the prior year, whilst clearance rates were a very solid 80.2%. Sales averages for colts grew by 27.1% to
$29,676, whilst fillies’ averages grew by 5.6% to $22,058.

Sales Results – Combined APG Sales 2019 2018
Sales Average $26,269 $22,314
Sales Clearance Rate
Colts Average 80.2% 82.8%
Colts Clearance Rate $29,676 $23,355
Fillies Average 82.00%
Fillies Clearance Rate $22,058 87.6%

When you drill down further, the statistics show that colts experienced strong growth across all price ranges,
whilst the majority of the growth in the fillies market was seen at the top end.

This represents almost the complete opposite of the prior year’s trend, where the bulk of growth was achieved
at the bottom and middle sections of the market, and the fillies experienced strong growth, whilst the colts
experienced an overall decline.

As an organisation, rather than dwelling on our past achievements, APG prefers to look to the future, focussing
on our goal of maintaining a healthy commercial breeding industry by developing and implementing strategies
designed to service our existing buyer base and bring new buyers to the industry.

However, from time to time we believe that it is important for us to remind vendors of how successful APG has
been at growing returns for vendors in an industry that over the last decade or so has faced more than its share
of difficult issues and hardships.

Accordingly, we would like to present breeders with the following graphs, highlighting APG’s achievements over
the past twelve years.

The above graphs illustrate APG’s strong growth over the last 12 years, highlighted by:

 APG’s share of the combined APG / NZ Yearling Sales market increasing from 28% to 52%;

 APG’s East Coast Sales Averages have increased by over 110%, compared to Australia’s prizemoney and
Australia’s Consumer Price Index, which have each grown by around 30%.

Importantly, APG’s Melbourne and Sydney Sales Turnover has actually increased by 137% over the 12 year
period, thanks to a combination of:

 increased sales averages (up by 105.3%);
 increased clearance rates (up by 10.9% to 82.5%);
 increased number of sales horses being presented in the sales ring (up from 388 in 2007 to 389 in 2019)

Whilst APG is extremely pleased with the results that it has achieved on the East Coast, we are also equally
pleased with the growth that has been achieved in Perth since APG took over the operation of the Perth Sales in

In the three years since APG took over the operation of the Perth Sales, Perth Sales averages have increased by
32.5%, whilst turnover has grown by 27.2%.

APG’s 2020 Sales Calendar will be similar to its 2019 Calendar with a few exceptions, as detailed below.

Brisbane – Sunday, 26 January 2020

At a recent Industry Consultation session in Brisbane, both APG and Racing Queensland sought the support of
the co-ordinators of the Redcliffe Yearling Sales (Darren Ebert & Co) to create an industry day, which would see
both the Redcliffe and the APG Sales conducted on the same day at the same venue, with Racing Queensland
working alongside both companies to create a special day for the Queensland Harness Racing Industry.

Both APG and Redcliffe would maintain their separate identities, and conduct separate sales on the day, each
with their own catalogues, race series and the like, but the sales would benefit in a range of ways, including
shared set-up costs, shared promotions, and additional support from Racing Queensland.

All aspects of the “Industry Sales Day” were open for discussion, including things such as date and venue.
Unfortunately, the co-ordinators of the Redcliffe Yearling Sales did not wish to pursue the concept for 2020, but
APG will seek to pursue the concept again for 2021 as we believe it would deliver significant benefits to all
Queensland participants.

Accordingly, APG’s Brisbane Sale will continue to be held at Albion Park on the Australia Day weekend, and we
will continue to develop initiatives to ensure that APG’s Brisbane Sale remains the number one destination for
buyers seeking to benefit from Queensland’s incredible Sales Races and QBred Scheme.

Melbourne – Sunday, 2 February 2020

APG’s Melbourne Sale will retain its usual timeslot of the Sunday of Hunter Cup weekend and we will continue to
cap the number of horses that we catalogue for the sale. For the first time, APG will trial incorporating the APTS
into its Melbourne Sale weekend, with the APTS to be conducted as an evening session following the conclusion
of the pacers sale. For further details, please refer to page 8.

As per last season, John Coffey will be visiting vendors/preparers properties throughout September, October &
November to conduct yearling inspections of the Melbourne horses, meaning that selection for the Melbourne
Sale will be based on a combination of pedigree and conformation.

APG would like to thank Harness Breeders Victoria for their efforts to support the sales weekend with their BBQ
which has become a regular fixture on the Friday night of sales weekend. Heading into 2020, APG intends to
seek their support to add a yearling parade on the Friday night, further enhancing our Sales weekend.

Perth – Sunday, 1 March 2020

We are very excited to be moving to Magic Millions new four hectare property in the Swan Valley, about 25
minutes east of Perth, where they will be building a custom designed selling facility.

Kerry Hanks has been enormously helpful since commencing her role with RWWA, and has worked closely with
APG to ensure that we have a race free day in WA for our sales on the Sunday.

Sydney – Sunday, 8 March 2020

APG’s Sydney Sale will once again be held on Miracle Mile weekend at Inglis’s Riverside Stables at Warwick

APG is extremely grateful to the support of NSW Breeders Association, for their assistance in conducting last
year’s yearling parade, and we hope to work with them again in 2020, providing them with further support to
grow the Friday night parade.



Fees & Charges Applicable to the 2020 APG Sales

Whilst New Zealand’s entry fees for their sales exceed $1,000 per horse ($1,092.50NZD for their 2020 Auckland
Sale and $1,063.75NZD for Christchurch), APG has elected to keep its entry fees capped at its current levels of
$385 per entry (plus an additional administration fee of $55 per entry if vendors choose not to enter online).

Accordingly, APG’s cost structure for its 2020 sales will be as follows:

Charge Description Amount
Cataloguing Fee (including APG’s online catalogue) $385 (or $440 if fail to use APG’s online entry system)
Stabling Fees
Commission on Genuine Sales $38.50 per day
Commission on Passed In Lots 10% + GST
(Reserve over $10,000 - vendor wishes to sustain)
Commission on Passed In Lots 10% of Reserve + GST
(Reserve $10,000 or under - vendor wishes to sustain) + sustaining fee
Commission on Passed In Lots
(vendor does not wish to sustain) 10% of Reserve + GST
(free sustaining)

5% of Reserve + GST

Perth Charges

In addition to the above charges, Perth Sale vendors will also be required to pay a compulsory vendor sustaining
fee of $302.50 ($275 + GST) for all horses that enter the sales ring.

This fee is collected by APG on behalf of RWWA and goes directly to the funding of the APG Perth Sales Classics.

With regards to stabling, Perth vendors will pay a fee equal to the fee charged to APG by Magic Millions (fee yet
to be determined).

Online Entry

APG is continuing its push to have vendors nominate for the sales using our online entry system.

In particular, the Online Entry System:

 Eliminates risks associated with entries being lost in the post;
 Significantly reduces the administrative burden on APG associated with re-entering paper-based entries

into our auction software;
 Eliminates typos and/or description errors because the entry system is linked to a foal extract from the

national HaRVEY database and automatically populates entry forms with the relevant breeding, colour,
sex and freeze brand information based on the broodmare details entered by the vendor; and
 Provides vendors with immediate e-mail confirmation of all of their sales entries for their records.

Once vendors have set themselves up within the Online Entry system, they will find that future entries are
incredibly quick and easy, as the system allows them to save their vendor information, address details and
banking details. In addition, all entry fees paid via credit card using the Entry System’s secure online credit card
payment facility will not incur any credit card processing fees.

Until such time as APG adopts a 100% online entry process, vendors will still remain able to enter using paper-
based forms, however, a $55 administration fee will apply to each horse that is not entered online.



APTS Sales Date – Sunday, 2 February 2020

The 2020 APTS will be the second time that APG will conduct the APTS pursuant to a three year agreement with
HRV than encompasses the 2019, 2020 & 2021 Trotting Sales.

For 2020, APG’s Board has made the decision to trial the concept of incorporating the APTS into our enormously
successful Melbourne Sales weekend.

Under the new format:

 APG will seek to conduct a yearling parade on the Friday night, promoting both the trotters and the

 Friday afternoon and Saturday will be marketed as official inspection days for both the trotters and the

 Sunday’s pacing sale will commence at 10:30am (instead of the usual 11am) and will run through to
around 5:00-5:30pm, with the trotting sale to commence almost immediately following the conclusion
of the pacing sale.

APG believes that combining the trotting sale with the pacing sale on the Sunday will create a number of
synergies and benefits, including:

 Creating organisational efficiencies and cost savings for APG, vendors, preparers & buyers; and

 Maximising the exposure of the trotting yearlings to APG buyers (Melbourne’s Sunday Sale attracts the
highest attendance of any standardbred sale in Australia);

We anticipate that the total number of yearlings presented in the ring on the Sunday will closely match the
numbers that typically go through the ring on a daily basis at the Magic Millions Sales on the Gold Coast (where
they catalogue 265 yearlings per day).

Fees & Charges Applicable to the 2020 APTS Sales

The fees & charges pertaining to the APTS will remain the same as last year:

Charge Description Amount
Cataloguing Fee (including APG’s online catalogue) $275 (or $330 if fail to use APG’s online entry system)
Stabling Fees
Commission on Genuine Sales $38.50 per day
Commission on Passed In Lots 8% + GST
(Reserve over $10,000 - vendor wishes to sustain)
Commission on Passed In Lots 9% of Reserve + GST (capped at $2,750)
(Reserve $10,000 or under - vendor wishes to sustain) + sustaining fee
Commission on Passed In Lots
(vendor does not wish to sustain) 9% of Reserve + GST
(free sustaining)
$200 + GST



Vendors would be aware that APG seeks to maximise returns for vendors by ensuring that the APG sales are
conducted in the most professional possible manner, and are conducted in a selling environment that allows
buyers to bid with confidence.

To this end, APG offers buyers a number of forms of protection, including:

 An effective steroid testing program;
 Optional steroid testing on sales day (at the request of the buyer);
 Post sale laryngoscopic evaluation;
 Protective clauses relating to rigs, wobblers and windsuckers;
 Protective clauses relating to bone fractures and chips.

These protective clauses are designed to protect the purchaser against faults that are either difficult or
impossible to identify by visual inspection alone (e.g. bone chips), and are not intended to protect buyers from
potential faults or defects that should have been clearly visible to the naked eye (e.g. conformation issues).

Importantly, clause 7.6 of APG’s Terms & Conditions makes it clear that the vendor is required to disclose:

 if the horse has any known bone fractures, chips or other bone or joint abnormalities potentially
affecting racing soundness; and

 if the horse has undergone invasive joint surgery or surgical intervention of the upper respiratory tract or
has undergone abdominal surgery of any type

Vendors should ensure that any disclosures are made to APG immediately upon the vendor becoming aware of
an issue that requires disclosure, and should submit any accompanying veterinary report – do not wait until the
weekend of the sales. APG will then provide advice to the vendor on how to handle the situation to maintain
the highest standards of integrity, and will also arrange for the necessary disclosures to be made on sales day to
ensure the vendor is not in breach of any of the vendor warranties in APG’s Terms & Conditions.

Horses not Permitted to Go Through Sales if APG Not Notified of Disclosable Issue at least 72Hrs Prior to Sales

In recent years, we have had a number of situations where vendors have failed to disclose surgeries or other
disclosable conditions to APG until sometimes as late as an hour before their horse is due to go through the ring.
This is unacceptable as it does not provide APG with sufficient time to ensure that there is clear and fair
disclosure of the condition to buyers, exposing both APG and the vendor to criticism.

APG is implementing a policy whereby horses will not be permitted to be presented for sale unless vendors
have provided written notification (by e-mail) to APG ([email protected]) no later than 72hours prior to
the relevant sales date, detailing the disclosure and attaching any supporting veterinary report.

Whilst the 72 hour deadline applies, our strong preference is to receive notification immediately upon
vendors/preparers becoming aware of a disclosable condition (often weeks or months prior to the sales).

Do Not Ignore Issues that Require Investigation

In the event that a horse has any symptoms (e.g. a bog spavin) that may indicate the presence of a disclosable
condition (e.g. bone chips), APG expects vendors to seek veterinary advice to determine whether the horse is
indeed suffering from a disclosable condition.

Failure to seek appropriate veterinary advice has the potential to create issues for both the vendor and the
purchaser, and impacts upon the reputation of both the vendor and the APG Sales. This, in turn, may impact
upon APG’s decision to accept entries from that vendor in future years.



APG is proud of its ability to offer vendors and buyers exclusive access to Australasia’s richest 2yo & 3yo Series.
As regular APG vendors would be aware, APG recently undertook the first stage of our comprehensive review
into the format and structure of our $1.8M+ Race Series.
The goal of the review is to ensure that APG’s Race Series continues to maximise its appeal to participants, and
continues to encourage participants to invest in APG Sales yearlings.
The first stage of the review involved collecting feedback via a survey from over 1,000 APG customers that had
either purchased, sold or trained an APG graduate from the last three years of APG sales.
Based on the survey results, APG is now developing and modelling a couple of different race series scenarios that
we look forward to presenting to participants in the coming weeks, to allow them to vote on which race series
format will be adopted for the next 3 years.


2020 SALE


APG is heading towards a 100% online entry process for a number of reasons, including accuracy, ease of
administration, and risk management reasons.

Whilst APG will still accept paper based entries for the 2020 sales, APG will be levying an administration fee of
$55 per horse on such entries. This administrative fee is being levied to reflect the additional workload that
these entries place on APG’s staff, and also to encourage vendors to switch to the online system to avoid the fee.

Benefits of Online Entry & Payment

 Get instant e-mail confirmation that your entry has been received (no risk of entry being lost in post);

 Online entry system matches yearlings against information in the national database, making it easy for
vendors to identify any registration issues / mistakes (e.g. sire, sex, colour, D.O.B. and freeze brand);

 Secure, online credit card payment facility (APG will waive any credit card processing fees for vendors
that submit and pay for their entries online);

 Direct Deposit option available, to enable vendors to make a bank transfer direct to APG’s account;

 Avoid the $55 per horse administration fee applicable to entries not submitted via the Online System.

Important Information That You Will Require Prior to Entering Your Horses Online

To enter online, simply go to, and then click on the “Online Entry” link. Please note, that
before attempting to enter your horses online, it is essential that you have the following information available:

 Dam’s name (system will use this information to automatically identify the foal’s sire, sex, colour, D.O.B.
and freeze brand as per the national registration database);

 Any futurity eligibilities for the horse (e.g. Breeders Crown, Bathurst, Vicbred, etc.)

 The names, addresses, mobile numbers and e-mails for all owners (please note that once you’ve entered
these details once, they will be saved for future horses and/or years)

 The ownership percentage for each vendor, as well as their GST status and ABN number (if applicable);

 The bank account details of each person that will be receiving sales proceeds, and the percentage of
sales proceeds to be paid to each vendor.

Important Note

It is only necessary to split the ownership of a horse between the various owners if sales proceeds are to be paid
to each owner based on their percentage share, or if some owners are GST registered and some are not.

For example, if John & Jane Smith (a husband and wife) own a horse in partnership, and both share the same GST
status, and they do not need individual statements for tax purposes, then it would be fine to enter the horse as
being 100% owned by “John & Jane Smith”.

However, if John was GST registered, while his wife was not, then it would be necessary to enter the horse as
being 50% owned by “John Smith” and 50% owned by “Jane Smith”. You would need to complete bank details
for each individual owner (it may be that you enter the same bank details for each owner, meaning that APG will
make two payments into the same bank account – one for each owner). Post sale, APG will issue individual
statements to each owner, and will ensure that GST is accounted for correctly between the various owners.
