Industry Status Report

by admin on January 1, 2015

While it is too early to say it would appear the breeding incentives that have been implemented are starting to have some affect in halting the decline after a disastrous drop in the 12/13 season.

Here’s hoping we see a continued halt to the decline and perhaps even an increase in numbers over time.

It is too be noted that the number of horses in the Gloucester Standardbred yearling sales is up by over 25%

year 09/10   648   average sale  $9,071  highest  sale  $42,000

year 10/11    642                             $10,120                        $46,000

year 11/12     659                             $10,829                       $46,000

year 12/13    459                              $13,517                        $46,000

year 13/14    454                              $13,396                        $55,000

So with the above in mind its time to contact Gloucester Standardbreds for your Sales catalogue

Time to support  WESTBRED HORSES
