The horse is sold at the fall of the hammer and any bids made or received after the fall of the hammer are not grounds for any dispute. In the event a dispute arises between two (2) or more acknowledged bidders the horse in dispute shall immediately be put up again for advanced bids . If there is no advance, then the horse shall be sold to the person from whom the auctioneer recognized the last bid. The reopening for advance bids shall be limited to the disputing parties, provided, however, in the event the recognized bid from any of the disputing parties be reduced below the bid at the commencement of the reopening for advance bids, then the bidding shall be reopened to all bidders and the final bid therefrom shall stand, regardless of whether such bid was less than the bid which was disputed.

In the event the successful bidder fails or refuses to execute the Purchase Agreement for any reason, RES may elect, in its sole discretion, to re-offer the horse as soon as practical at the next available opportunity, or withdraw the horse entirely from the sale.

Buyer shall make full payment (including any applicable sales tax) to RES not more than twenty four (24) following the start of the session in which the horse was purchased. In no case shall the purchase price be paid by buyer directly to Consignor. Any payment of a purchase price not made directly to RES will not entitle the buyer to obtain any horses purchased.

All buyers who purchase any horses at the Sale, through the execution of the Purchase Agreement, grant to RES a security interest in all horses purchased and their registration certificates and in any products or proceeds thereof to secure payment of any outstanding amounts owed to RES on buyer's account.

7. Default. In the event any buyer fails or refuses timely to pay for the full purchase price of any horse purchased by such buyer in accordance with Section 6, fails to fully execute and deliver the Purchase Agreement to RES or in the event any such buyer makes payment by any negotiable instrument that is dishonored, cancelled, stopped or returned to RES marked insufficient funds or the like, such buyer shall automatically be in default of this Agreement ("Default") and shall immediately become a defaulter (a "Defaulter"). Upon the occurrence of any Default, RES shall have all rights and remedies in and against the horse and the collateral granted pursuant to the Purchase Agreement (the "Collateral) provided under the Uniform Commercial Code of Kentucky (and all such other states where any part of the Collateral may be located if applicable) and other applicable law, and all rights provided herein, and in all other instruments securing the payment obligations of Defaulter, all of which rights and remedies shall to the full extent permitted by law be cumulative. RES shall notify Consignor of the horse as soon as practical following Default. The Consignor shall notify RES within thirty (30) minutes of notification of Default from RES whether Consignor elects to: (a) personally extend credit to the Defaulter of for the payment of the purchase price and accept the risk of payment of the Defaulter at Consignor's sole risk and expense, (b) void the sale to the Defaulter and re-offer the horse at the Sale, or (c) void the sale and retain ownership of the horse. In the event Consignor fails to notify RES of its decision within thirty (30) minutes, or in the event RES is unable to notify Consignor within a reasonable time period following the Default, RES may, in its sole discretion, void the sale to the Defaulter, re-enter the horse in the auction ring during the same Sale session and re-sell the horse for the Defaulter's account. In the event RES, in its sole discretion, determines it is not practical, appropriate or advisable to resell the horse during the Sale session, the horse may be resold by RES at public or private sale, without prior notice to the Defaulter for the Defaulter's account. Any costs attributable to such sale, including attorneys fees shall be the obligation of Defaulter. Should any deficiency exist following the resale of such horse, Defaulter shall be responsible for any such deficiency balance and shall pay RES the amount owing, including any late charges, fees, costs of litigation and sale, expenses, including attorneys fees and any other damages available to RES including reimbursement of caring and insuring such horse. RES shall have the right to bring suit against any Defaulter and to repossess the horse purchased by the Defaulter giving rise to the Default and its registration papers. Defaulter shall be liable for a delinquency or late charge at the rate of 1.5% per month on any unpaid amounts owed to RES by Defaulter until paid in full. Consignor acknowledges and agrees that any deficiency from any such sale on Defaulter's account that exists shall be borne by Consignor and RES shall have no obligation to satisfy any such deficiency. Consignor agrees to release, defend, indemnify and hold harmless the RES Parties from any Losses incurred by Consignor or any third party resulting from any action taken or not taken by RES pursuant to this Section.

8. Coggins; Health Certificates; Broodmares. All horses offered for sale in this Sale will be sold with valid health certificates and current negative Coggins Tests. Any broodmares offered for sale in this Sale as "pregnant" or "in foal" shall be sold with a veterinarian certificate verifying pregnancy within fourteen (14) days of the Sale. Consignor makes no further guarantee of pregnancy. Within twenty four (24) hours from the conclusion of the session of the Sale in which the broodmare sold and before the broodmare leaves the Sales grounds, the buyer of such broodmare may have his own veterinarian examine the broodmare to determine if she is then currently in foal. Without this examination, the mare will be assumed to be in foal when she leaves the Sales grounds. Time is of the essence. Failure to strictly comply with the notice requirements set forth in this Section shall disallow the protection of the applicable warranty in favor of buyer. If the veterinarian finds the broodmare not to be pregnant within twenty four (24) hours of the conclusion of the session of the Sale in which the broodmare sold and before the broodmare leaves the sales grounds, buyer may notify RES in writing of such report and request that the broodmare be returned to the Consignor. Following receipt of notice, the Consignor may elect to accept return of the broodmare and void the sale, or may cause Consignor's own veterinarian to examine the broodmare. In the event Consignor's veterinarian fails to examine the broodmare within twelve (12) hours following receipt of notice of buyer's request of return, Consignor shall waive such right and shall be deemed to have accepted return of the broodmare and voided the sale. In the event Consignor's veterinarian and buyer's veterinarian disagree as to the pregnancy, RES shall appoint a third veterinarian to examine the broodmare. The opinion of the third veterinarian shall be binding on all parties. In the event the third veterinarian finds the broodmare to be pregnant, the buyer shall be required to complete the purchase and pay the fees charged by the third veterinarian. In the event the third veterinarian finds the broodmare to not be pregnant, the broodmare shall be returned to Consignor as unsold and buyer shall have no further obligation to pay the purchase price and Consignor shall be obligated to pay the fees charged by the third veterinarian. Consignor and buyer agree to release, defend, indemnify and hold harmless the RES Parties from any Losses incurred by Consignor, buyer or any third party resulting from any action taken or not taken by RES pursuant to this Section.

9. Registration Certificates. The registration certificates of all horses listed in the Sale catalog as registered must be furnished by the Consignor with a clear title of ownership (all transfers up to date) prior to the time of Sale. If for any reason the registration certificate of any horse listed in the Sale catalog as registered cannot be or is not furnished by the Consignor, it is the sole and absolute responsibility of the Consignor to request the auctioneer announce that the certificate will not be furnished to the buyer. RES will withhold settlement for all sales until registration certificates have been delivered, unless the buyer agrees in writing to accept the horse without its registration papers. The consignor must also furnish all documents needed in order for buyer to register foals by side or foals in utero. RES reserves the right to withhold delivery of all registration papers for all horses either bought by buyer or returned to Consignor for any reason until such time as the buyer's or Consignor's account with RES shall have been paid in full. In order to secure payment of the purchase price or sales commission, buyer and Consignor hereby grant RES its successors and assigns a security interest and lien upon the subject horse or horses together with all registration certificates relating thereto. Consignor and buyer agree to release, defend, indemnify and hold harmless the RES Parties from any Losses incurred by Consignor, buyer or any third party resulting from any action taken or not taken by RES pursuant to this Section.

10. Agents. Persons acting as agents for principals, irrespective of whether the principal is in attendance at the sale, must deliver to RES authorized agent forms in form and substance satisfactory to RES in its sole discretion from the principals stating that the agent is acting on their behalf and that said principal will be responsible for agent sales or purchases. Failure to strictly comply with this Section will result in the agent being deemed to be a co-obligor with the principal with respect to all matters in connection with or arising out of the Sale and impose joint and several personal liability upon such agent for any breach of contract. In the event an authorization of agent form is later is shown to be invalid, the delivery and acceptance of such invalid form shall in no way relieve such agent of personal liability with respect to matters arising out of the Sale.

11. Disclaimer of Implied Duties. RES shall endeavor to protect the interests of both Consignor and buyer, but the duties and obligations of RES to such persons shall be strictly limited to those expressly imposed upon RES by these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All other duties and obligations, including fiduciary and other duties which might otherwise be imposed upon RES by operation of law, are hereby expressly disclaimed, except that RES shall be required to exercise that standard of care generally exercised by other comparable horse auction companies.

12. No Waiver or Course of Dealing . In the event RES elects to take or withhold from taking any action pursuant to these Terms and Conditions or otherwise, such election shall not constitute a waiver, nor establish a custom or course of dealing and shall not abrogate RES's right to take or elect not to take such action in any other circumstance with any other party or with the party involved for any reason.

13. Limitation of Actions . Any cause of action arising out of the purchase and sale of any horse, or interest therein at this Sale, or relating to these Terms and Conditions or any action taking place at or in connection with the Sale, whether it is based in contract or tort, shall be commenced in not more than one year after the date of the Sale.

The Consignor, buyer and RES and their respective agents, voluntarily and intentionally waive any right that they may have to a trial by jury in respect to any litigation arising from or connected with this Sale.

15. Entire Agreement. These Terms and Conditions, the Consignors Contract and the Purchase Agreement (including the documents and instruments referred to therein and herein) constitute the entire agreement between the Consignor, buyer, RES and any and all other interested parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all other prior agreements and understandings, both written and/or oral, among such parties. All of the terms of these Terms and Conditions shall be binding upon the respective successors, heirs, legal representatives and assigns of the Consignor, buyer, RES and all interested parties and shall inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective heirs, successors, legal representatives and assigns. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not effect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms and Conditions as a whole or any other provision herein. All buyers, Consignors, and all other interested parties agree that such parties will take or cause to be taken such further actions, and will execute, deliver and file, or cause to be executed, delivered and filed, such further documents, instruments and consents, as may be necessary or as may be reasonably requested by RES in order to effectuate fully the purposes, terms and conditions of these Terms and Conditions, the Consignors Contract and the Purchase Agreement, whether before, at or after the date hereof.
