What we do

In addition to developing and supporting comprehensive Eclipse systems for equine ambulatory and hospital practice, we have also undertaken a number of large-scale bespoke projects for related equine thoroughbred organisations, principally at Tattersalls and Weatherbys.


Tattersalls sales auction software originally went live in 2009, succeeding an old IBM system that had long ago outlived its usefulness. The design and development work created an elegant easy-to-use auction system, now adopted widely across Tattersalls including Ireland and, more recently, Ascot and Sandown.

An online auction module was added when Covid made it difficult to hold public auctions in person and it seamlessly slotted in to extend the functionality for Tattersalls. Support, maintenance and training is provided to keep everything running smoothly, especially on sale days! And, as with Eclipse, an integrated app has been developed to enable those attending any sale to have all the lot details they need available instantly updated on their iPhones/iPads.

  • Holds all details for vendors, purchasers and consigners
  • Yearling inspections system for auctioneers visiting vendors to grade young stock

Weatherbys, an equally long-established member of a very select group of companies deeply ingrained in the business of recording thoroughbred racing and breeding data, also have bespoke software designed and developed by Eclipse.

The Bloodstock team keep worldwide performance information up-to-date and use their custom application to create and produce that information in a huge variety of formats, from the beautifully illustrated Stallion Book to the signs on the stable doors at Tattersalls’ sales!
