No one takes the selling of broodmares, racehorses, yearlings, weanlings and stallions more seriously than the team at APG (92% clearance rate across our yearling sales in 2021).  It’s this service that clearly sets Australian Pacing Gold apart from its rivals. A not-for-profit company, Australian Pacing Gold is the only standardbred sales company that puts serious money back into the industry in so many ways.

Alex Smith (known as a true legend at APG) has again entrusted the team at APG to handle a small reduction in his numbers, now entered in the 2021 APG NATIONAL MIXED SALE . The sale starts this Friday 16th of July and will finish Sunday the 18th of July. We really appreciate Alex and all those owners that have supported this very exciting event over the last 4 years.

Alex Smith’s harness racing bio is extremely impressive and he is certainly one of those great guys in our sport that is most definitely “Leading The Way”.

Alex understands the principle that the best way for people to bid with confidence is to set little or no reserves and let the market set their true value.

This is a principle Alex has delivered year after year in the APG National Mixed Sales.

Below is a table of Alex’s horse that will be finding a new home on Sunday:
