Oliver St Lawrence has heaped praise on the bloodstock industry for coming together and supporting the online sale of stallion nominations in aid of the Giving To Ukraine charity and the Disasters Emergency Committee's Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal on Tuesday.

The sale was hosted by Tattersalls and, according to St Lawrence, over £250,000 has been raised, but that figure is expected to rise to £300,000 by close of play on Wednesday.

A nomination to Showcasing(GB)  topped the session when selling to Turquoise Bloodstock for 35,000gns while the La Australiana Partnership went to 30,000 for a nomination to Kodiac (GB).

Speaking on Tuesday evening, St Lawrence said,  “It looks as though we have raised a quarter of a million and, with other sales almost over the line, we might get that to the £300,000 mark.”

He added, “Given the charity nature of the sale, quite a few people bought anonymously. I am really thankful to the people who bid, and even the underbidders, as they helped to drive the bidding. I'm really grateful to them for their support and obviously to the stallion rights holders as well for being so generous.”
