Robertson Equine Sales launches new online sales auction with bonus services

“Our clients have asked us for an online auction platform tailored to their expectations for an in-person, RES-styled experience,” said Robertson Equine Sales LLC’s CEO Jimmy Robertson. “We’re very pleased to say it’s on the way!”

“It’s an exciting and efficient time for the show horse community,” said RES’s Chief Operations Officer Helen Robertson. “The new online auction site we’ve created enables sellers and buyers to enjoy the best of both worlds – live/in-person, plus the convenient keyboard technology that reaches a broader audience. We pledge to our clients that Robertson Equine Online will deliver the platinum level of personalized service that our Shelbyville, Ky., office team offers.”

“We know – and our data and experience continue to prove – that a live, in-person auction delivers maximum value to consignors and heightened bidding interest among purchasers, so we will continue with our live auctions at Shelby County Fairgrounds,” Jimmy continued. “Our horse community tells us they need the live auctions to remain available.”

RES’s closely replicated-to-live auction online portal will feature:
Collection of buyers’ funds for distribution to consignor
Four-hour window for bidding, designed to stimulate intensity
Multi-breed: ASBs, Hackneys, Standardbreds, Morgans, and more
Prompt processing of funds to consignors’ accounts
Personalized client service

Watch for further details – and, the Robertsons point out, “make plans to join us for our Autumn ’21 sale on Saturday, Nov. 20 at Shelbyville, featuring an outstanding catalog of impeccably bred horses from Elisabeth Goth LLC, top performers including current world’s champions, and a very impressive catalog of Heartland Hackney ponies.”
