Tamworth Landmark Classic to see big sales at AELEC on the weekend

EQUINE experts, potential purchasers and average punters continue to stream through the gates as the Landmark Classic gears up for a big weekend of sales.

The annual Tamworth event has continued to grow in stature with the 2017 edition roping-in more than $7 million in horse sales.

Landmark general manager of livestock Mark Barton said average sales have grown annually.

“Year on year, we’ve seen this sale grow from 120 horses that grossed $1.2 million to lay year was just over $7 million,” he said.


“The averages have grown and the clearances remain high.

“I think more and more people are prepared to see value in  a properly bred and well-started young horse.

“So you’ve seen those values increase from $8000 to $10,000 averages to $15,000 averages over a decade.”

Organisers said the weekend would see the event culminate with its bigger sales.
