- Breeders in many instances did not give enough information on the breeding and performance of stock entered in the catalogue.
- At the sale stock were reasonably well presented, however in many instances the hoof condition of mares left a lot to be desired. The mare may not have been for sale but a well turned out mare, particularly hoof care can go a long way in selling the foal.
- Auctioneers tried hard to get a sale and were finished some time after 6. p.m.
- Great credit is due to the Clarke family at Cavan Equestrian Centre for the manner in which they presented the catalogue and in the way they ran the sale.
