Darby Racing leads demand at Inglis Melbourne March Sale

Good racehorses were in demand at the Inglis Melbourne March Sale on Friday.

A total of 254 lots sold for $1,19 million at a 94% clearance rate including 60 lots that were sold online.  “Race fillies, colts and geldings have always been popular in Melbourne and that was again the case,” Inglis director Peter Heagney said.  “We wish all our buyers the best of luck with their new acquisitions.”

The Moody trained G2 placegetter Elusive King (Elusive Quality) received the highest price when purchased by Darby Racing for $62,000.  Offerings from Darley filled the next five lots on the leader-board – G3 placegetter Giresun (Domesday) sold for $55,000 to Kane Harris and Gosford winner Treaty (Strategic) made $44,000 to Keith Arnold from the Top End.

The next Inglis Sale at Oaklands is the inaugural Inglis VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale on April 28 and 29.
