2018 Inglis Select Yearling Sale
Following a record 2017 season, attention has switched to next year when more horses will be sold on more days of auction as the company expands and moves its Sydney base to Riverside Stables.
Around 2000 yearlings were sold through an Inglis Select Yearling Sale this year, at an outstanding clearance rate of 88%.
Highlights of the season included Inglis selling the first ever $1million horse in Victoria, selling 18 of the 23 $1million+ yearlings sold in Australasia, and statistically the most successful season in the company’s 150-year history.
Features of the 2018 Inglis Select Yearling Sale Series include a bumper four days of the Classic Sale to start the year – which will double as the inaugural sale at the new Riverside Stables complex.
Classic will again include the popular Gold Riband session on opening night, as well as a $1million bonus split between named vendor and supplier if any horse sold at the 2018 Classic Yearling Sale wins the 2019 Golden Slipper.
The Premier Yearling Sale and Australian Easter Yearling Sale will again look to gain on their recent outstanding successes; Premier has achieved year-on-year growth for an amazing eight consecutive years, and Easter averaged $355,000 this year – 73% higher than the next nearest yearling sale in the southern hemisphere.
Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster was proud of the company’s 2017 achievements but said the focus was now firmly on next year.
“Our results from 2017 speak for themselves: we delivered the highest average price across the industry and the highest clearance rates in Australasia,’’ Webster said.
“The 2017 season was a triumphant one but let me reassure you that our focus is now on 2018 and ensuring we all continue to enjoy a prosperous racing industry and healthy bloodstock market.
“We take nothing for granted.’’
