Day 2 Inglis Classic Summer Sale – Average rises 13% at Newmarket

Colts by Not A Single Doubt and Magic Albert topped Day 2 of the Inglis Sydney Classic Summer Sale at $170,000.

A total of 348 yearlings traded for $11.73 million at Newmarket during the revamped Classic Sale which has been split into Summer and Winter catalogues.  The average price over the two sessions increased 13% to $33,712 and the median was up 20% to $30,000.

Bell River’s colt by Not A Single Doubt from Fleecing was sold to leading Perth trainer Neville Parnham for $170,000 early on Monday and that figure was also obtained two hours later when Fairview Park’s colt by Magic Albert from Kianben was claimed by local trainer David Vandyke.

Japanese businessman Tomohiro Sekiguchi, the owner of Saturday’s $250,000 Inglis Classic winner Marseille Roulette, bought the Sebring – Private filly for $140,000.  She was part of the Turangga Farm draft as was Marseille Roulette twelve months ago.

“Buyers were quite selective but there was considerable growth in the $30,000 to $60,000 price range,” Inglis director Jonathan D’Arcy said.  “I’m sure we will see a strong Classic Winter Book in June with many of the yearlings benefiting from another six months of growth.”
