The course of the auction day
The auction day offers the buyer great opportunity to inspect many yearlings simultaneously at the auction premises. Commotion at the stable area begin already at noon. Breeders or their staff demonstrate their yearlings at the yard or at the lounging lane. The veterinary certificates can be found on the box-walls. At the auction premises the buyer has good chance to get to know the sales items and the information about them before the sale. Actual selling begins in the evening, when every yearling enters in turn to the sales ring in the auction hall.
The buyer who is intending to purchase a yearling should come to the auction with a horse transport vehicle. At Ypäjä there has often been a horse-hotel service which means renting boxes for the night after the auction, but in all cases horses must be collected next morning.
