    Auction YES, but with a new format


    This year, the fifth edition of the ANCCE auction will be organized within the framework of SICAB. Today’s market demands new marketing formats.

    Recently, a number of individual stud farms have organized private auctions.  At ANCCE, we believe that we should be the first to offer this service to our members and together with our members, take it forward.  Catching the eye of the general public in Spain and the interest of potential clients from abroad does not happen overnight.  Knowing that we are on the right path, we must continue forwards with even greater efforts.

    To give the auction renewed push, it will be moved from the SICAB fair grounds, to the Gran Hipodromo race track in Dos Hermanas. This venue offers magnificent and ample facilities for the presentation of horses.

    Likewise, a small cocktail party will also be organized to welcome all the guests both from Spain and abroad, especially those from Mexico. Several countries have already registered to visit the auction, including Germany, Sweden, England and Greece.  A major publicity campaign for the auction is underway in the USA and the Latin American countries.   

    A number of changes have been included this year, which include:

    •    Requirements in the quality of the horses presented
    •    Requirements in the level of training of the horses
    •    Moving from the FIBES venue to the Dos Hermanas race track
    •    A review of the starting price for the stallions
    •    Accept single filly entries
    •    Live, Internet transmission of the auction
    •    Increase both the national and international publicity of the event

    To take this ambitious project forward, we need the support of all our members. Please register those horses that would be good representatives for the PRE at auction. We will do everything possible to ensure that this next ANCCE auction is a success.

    The health requirements for the admission of horses will be the same as is required when presenting a horse at a TQB. Nevertheless, these will be published on our web-site and will reach all the breeders before the 21st of June.
