2018 Sale Report
‘’Remember this one, his name is Keyton…’’
The words of a very wise breeder and producer, heard during last week at Addington Manor.
Amongst a collection of 3 year old show jumping prospects, stood Lot 36 Keyton, a stallion by Cidane out of a mare by Whitesnake. Keyton has it all…looks, type, conformation & talent, with the pedigree to match and it was no surprise when he topped the sale on Saturday 18th August, achieving a price of £22,000. He was snapped up by Show Jumper Derek Morton, who plans to compete him under saddle and use him as a commercial stallion, at his base in Staffordshire, we are very much looking forward to hearing about is future success!
Addington’s International Indoor Arena, hosted an enormous crowd for the Saturday evening auction, with the VIP ringside seating area sold out and the grandstand seating packed with prospective purchasers.
A total of 52 horses were offered, selected for the sale from all over Holland, Germany, Belgium, Ireland and the UK. Despite the top lot coming from Holland, it was the horses consigned by our German vendors that were the most popular on the night, selling all 18. In total the auction saw an impressive 70% of horses finding new homes, achieving a healthy sale turnover of £500,000 and an average price of £14,000.
Once again, the decision to Live Stream this event at Addington proved vital. On the Thursday evening before the sale, the 3 year olds were shown loose jumping, and having watched the presentation at home a number of clients made contact and arranged to telephone bid during the auction, with a number successfully purchasing their chosen lots.
The live stream this year was conducted by ‘ClipMyHorse TV’, a German company who have come onto the Equestrian scene with a bang! Their portfolio of events they provide coverage for is truly impressive, and Brightwells are delighted to be working alongside them. Statistics show that people were viewing from all over the world, including USA, New Zealand, Canada, Greece, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iraq, Czechia etc.
