Entries close with the Shepparton HRC on December 6.

“We are expecting good quality entries and strong numbers for the sale,” Shepparton HRC board member and sale co-ordinator Ian Chambers said.

“We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from Australian Pacing Gold.” APG yearlings offered at Shepparton will be eligible for $350,000 Sales races for two-year-old colts and fillies in 2017.

Vendors wishing to nominate their yearling for the APG section of the Shepparton sale have until October 31 to lodge their entry with the APG office.

The sale will be conducted the day after the Group 1 Cranbourne Pacing Cup and is expected to attract buyers from throughout Victoria and the Riverina.

The club will arrange overnight stabling and accommodation for vendors.

The sale will have live streaming with a provision for phone bidding (subject to conditions).
