This exciting and new format allowing people to bid online (via the internet from anywhere in the world) and live in-person does mean the auction will run slightly differently to previous years. First and foremost, the auctioneer will be taking bids from the floor, as traditionally done, and from the online portal. A bell signifying an online bid is heard by all as soon as an online bid is placed. There is no countdown clock as in the online only platform as the auction is live and therefore real time, which means you will need to follow the live stream if you are bidding on a horse from home as the horses will not be given a time slot. Secondly, online bidders do not get extra time to bid so you are urged to make your bids swiftly. Finally, lots may take a little longer to close as we ensure all bids are received and accounted for. This also allows us to accommodate any time lag on the livestream system. However, we do not expect much lag and all logged in bidders will see the update (either Floor Bid or Online Bid) and the stated amount instantly.
