EquineCommerce.com, an Internet selling venture for Thoroughbreds, shut down Jan. 1. The company was only in business for a little over a year even though it was backed by Keeneland and a number of high-powered consignors and buyers.
Equinecommerce.com will be adding stallion shares to its product line by the middle of this month, according to Barry Weisbord, the Internet company's chief executive officer.
EquineCommerce.com, the online company which sells horses through a bid/ask system, registered its first sale on Dec. 30. An online bidder purchased a Smart Strike no-guarantee season for $24,500. EquineCommerce.com launched its Web site in early December.
EquineCommerce.com quietly opened for business earlier this week, failing to sell any horses or stallion seasons in its first series of listings. But the company's chief executive was pleased because the software for the company's Web site worked well.
EquineCommerce.com, which had expected to start its bid/ask system of selling bloodstock today, instead hopes to launch on Dec. 8.
EquineCommerce.com, an online bid/ask system of selling horses that will act like a stock exchange, will be open for business Dec. 1.
