Darley consigned a strong team of 15 horses to the Inglis Spring Sale at Newmarket on Friday and its draft provided the day’s two highest priced lots.
Sydney winning Viscount gelding Shakes topped the sale when selling to Roghan Hughes Thoroughbreds for $36,000. Fellow metropolitan winner Togni, a son of Giant’s Causeway, sold for $32,000.
Trade for 87 horses that changed hands reached $491,150 at a clearance rate of 91%.
“We took the decision to develop a Broodmare Sale in Scone during August, which proved very successful and this Spring Sale now concentrates on racehorses,” Inglis Bloodstock Director Jonathan D’Arcy said. “Friday’s sale proved very successful, highlighted by an excellent clearance rate and strong participation on-line.”
