The release of the 2016 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale catalogue online sees a slightly different format with an opening night session followed by two full days of selling, with a total 575 yearlings catalogued.
So far this season, nine graduates of the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale have won a combined twelve stakes races, with Group 1 Underwood Stakes winner Mourinho being the highlight. For a combined purchase price of under $400,000, the season’s nine stakes winners have returned their connections in excess of $3 million.
Group 1 winners Brazen Beau (I Am Invincible), Peggy Jean (Myboycharlie), Secret Admirer (Dubawi), Whobegotyou (Street Cry) and Choisir (Danehill Dancer) all found buyers at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, testament to the quality that can be secured at the sale.
“Buyers will find an exceptional variety on offer at Classic this year, from precocious two-year-olds and sprinting greats to Derby types and Classic performers, all by a great selection of sires,” said Inglis National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D’Arcy
The sale will kick off at 6.00pm on Saturday 6 February, following racing at Randwick and will feature progeny by a huge assortment of sires including I am Invincible (30 Lots), Star Witness (28), Hinchinbrook (26), Denman (22), Your Song (21), Dream Ahead (20), Nicconi (18), Smart Missile (15), Excelebration (13), Choisir (12), Delago Deluxe (12), Sebring (11), Foxwedge (11), So You Think (10), Stratum (9) and Snitzel (8).
“The introduction of the evening session is an innovation to the sale that will give our clients, especially those visiting Sydney, the opportunity to attend Royal Randwick during the day to see the running of the $250,000 Inglis Classic, and then make their way to Newmarket just minutes away in time for the first horse to walk through the ring at 6.00pm,” added D’Arcy.
Many of Australasia’s leading thoroughbred nurseries have again thrown their support behind the sale, including Widden Stud (41), Bhima Thoroughbreds (24), Vinery Stud (22), Arrowfield Stud (18), Emirates Park (17), Yarraman Park Stud (16), Middlebrook Valley Lodge (16), Sledmere Stud (16), Fairview Park Stud (16), Amarina Farm (14), Bowness Stud (14),Turangga Farm (13), Rosemont Stud (13), Riversdale (13), Murrulla Stud (13), Fairhill Farm (12), Southern Cross Breeders (11), Manx Park (11), Rheinwood Pastoral Co (11), Torryburn Stud (10) and Goodwood Farm (10).
