Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I bid?
To bid, you will need to become a registered bidder. You can register here. If you already are registered, then log into your account and choose the listing you would like to bid on. Input the price you would like to bid and click "Bid now".
How do I become a registered bidder?
Create a account here and tick "Become a registered bidder". Follow the prompts and you will be required to verify your email and then your mobile phone number. Once you have received the confirmation you can start bidding straight away!
Why do I have to be verified as a bidder?
This is to make sure only serious bidders are involved in the auction.
What is auto bidding?
Auto bidding occurs when a bidder has placed a maximum bid amount. The system will automatically generate bids on behalf of the bidder up to the maximum bid amount. If you enter the same amount as another bidder, the first bidder to place the maximum bid amount will be the winning bidder of that amount.
What is a maximum bid?
A maximum bid is the highest amount that you are willing to pay for that listing. This will allow the system to auto bid on your behalf up to the maximum amount set. You will receive email notifications for all bids that you have placed on an Everyday Auction listing.
Can I retract a bid?
No, once a bid is placed it cannot be retracted. Make sure you check our T&Cs to fully understand your responsibilities as a bidder in an Everyday Auction.
How will I know when I have won an auction, and how do I pay for my horse?
You will receive an email confirming that you are the highest bidder. On the email confirming that you are the highest bidder, there will also be a link to the escrow service Equine Safepay. Follow the prompts to pay for your purchase.
Why do I need to pay through Equine Safepay?
This is safest and easiest way for both parties to complete the transaction. Equine SafePay ensures the money sits with a custodian until you receive the horse and the related ownership papers. Once the horse and papers have arrived, you will need to approve for the money in trust to be released to the vendor.
Why does the end time of the auction keep extending?
If a bid is placed within the last 10 minutes of an auction, the end time will extend by 10 minutes. This is similar to an auctioneer saying "going once, twice, three times..." as it allows other bidders the time to counter bid on the auction.
How do I inspect a horse?
As per any other listing, we encourage doing your own checks and inspections prior to purchasing a horse. Inspections can be arranged with the vendor of the horse, all their contact details will be available on the listing page. If you are unable to inspect a horse due to location you can ring one of the agents on 1300 711 683 to help connect you with local vets and agents.
Can I have the horses scoped or vetted before purchase?
Yes, but this needs to be arranged with the vendor prior to purchase. Vet checks and Scoping is at the expense of the purchaser.
Can I take out insurance?
If you wish to take out insurance on your horse, please call Inglis Insurance on 02 9399 7999. Please note we do not cover fall of hammer insurance.

Winkler is a Rip Van Winkle gelding, and half brother to tough city stayer Burning Energy.

This gelding has taken time to mature and the trainer feels he is better off placed with a country trainer.

He has been out spelling since his last race start.
