Hi Shanthi

When the auction Started, I bid 100,000 for Blockbuster. I refreshed the screen and it showed I had the high bid at 100k. Now it is showing that semiaahmoo is holding the bid with the same amount. If you go into bid history, it shows both bids at 100K.

When two or more bidders bid the maximum on a horse, $100,000, the horse is them left on the auction for 12 more hours.  Anytime another stable puts in a $100,000 bid, the clock starts over again at 12 hours.  When there have been no new bids for 12 hours, the winner is randomly picked.  This is so that all bidders have a chance to get the horse if they are willing to pay the price, not just the first person to put down the maximum.  Since the bidding can't go up from $100,000, it makes sense.  Everyone interested has an equal chance to get the horse.
