In the event a Horse Race closing continues past 11:30 PM EST the auction company has the right to decrease the extended bidding time to 1 minute without advanced warning. We encourage bidders to use the MAX bid feature earlier in the day to avoid clock management issues in your bidding procedures.

WHY? The seller has decided to utilize the Horse Race Style Auction closing. With this option, all lots will close simultaneously. A few benefits to this style of auction - Buyer has the CHOICE to switch to any lot in the offering if he is outbid on his current choice; buyer does not have to deal with the "seller's order" of sale because all lots are offered and bid on simultaneously; and the buyer has true choices and more time to make decisions.

Extended Bidding means that the auction is not declared closed until there have been five minutes of inactivity on this sale. If there is any bidding during the inactivity period, the auction is extended until there is no bidding for five minutes during the inactivity period. You can always check the time remaining information that appears under each lot! REMEMBER TO CLICK ON REFRESH FOR UP-TO-DATE TIME REMAINING! For this sale, the extended bidding period is 5 minutes.
