Nutrien Equine are hosting a new annual sale and campdraft, with the inaugural event to take place from September 8 to 11 2022, at the centrally located, Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre in Tamworth
Nutrien Equines’ Mark Barton is excited by the opportunities provided to open age horse owners through this new event. “This is a real celebration of the open age horse” said Mark “It offers great opportunity to purchase an experienced horse and consistently compete for big prizemoney”. Whilst open age horses have been offered for sale at the Nutrien Classic in the past, they have had limited opportunity to come back and compete for the money on offer in the Masters Campdraft at that event the subsequent year. This new concept replaces that event and offers much broader opportunities for those in the market for an open age horse.
“In this most recent Classic we catalogued 225 Open Age horses, with many more seeking entry” Mark added “through consultation with our customers the concept to develop an event that celebrates the Open Age horses, in their own sale and campdraft event has been born”.
The feature campdraft event known as the Graduate Draft, will provide the opportunity for horses aged 6 and over, that have previously graduated through any of the Nutrien Classic (Tamworth), Nutrien Supreme (Toowoomba), Willinga Park or Nutrien Northern Performance Horse sales, to compete for a minimum prizemoney pool of $150,000 in 2022. The Masters Sale will be held in conjunction and is designed as a select sale that will feature the Open Age horses.
Sale Nominations will open for week from Tuesday 28th June via NutrienLive
