Tait Says Market Has Adjusted to Online Reality

Thursday, 9th July 2020

Twin Hills’ Olly Tait was delighted with Twin Hills’ So You Think colt sold to Darby Racing (see above). “At the end of the day $150,000 is a lot of money,’’ Tait said. “He was a lovely horse, he did everything right, he’s by a really good sire, he’s got a nice pedigree, his attitude and athleticism, he sold himself really. We didn’t have to do much." Tait pointed out, “The challenges of a large portion of the buying bench not being able to be physically here at the sale, that was a concern leading in, but we’re four months into this scenario and everybody is getting used to buying horses online, inspecting horses online, the standard of information the vendors are giving prospective buyers is far superior to what it was 12 months ago and this is a very good example – a bidder online paying $150,000 for a horse, that shows the market has adapted and the industry has adapted to the circumstances we are facing.’’
