Entries open for 2014 Inglis Select Yearling Sales

Entries are now being taken for the 2014 Inglis Select Yearling Sales Series which will again provide all breeders, big or small, with tailored market leading options for their young thoroughbreds.

“Every horse is as important to us as it is to its breeder, therefore we take a lot into consideration when setting our sales dates that will suit vendors, buyers and ultimately the young growing thoroughbreds that are being offered for sale,” Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster said.

“Inglis graduates continue to set the benchmark on and off the track, exampled by the outstanding feats of Black Caviar, All Too Hard, Exceed And Excel and Fastnet Rock this season.

The Inglis bloodstock team will be out in the field shortly to discuss with breeders the suitable sales options for all yearlings entered in Inglis’ Select Yearling Sales Series for 2014.

Easter Yearling Sale   Newmarket   8, 9 & 10 April
Easter continues to be the pinnacle of all thoroughbred sales in Australasia.  The Australasian record price for a yearling at auction was eclipsed twice at the 2013 Easter Sale, which was attended by the most diverse buying bench ever assembled at a thoroughbred auction in the Southern Hemisphere.

No less than 23 sires recorded their best result of the year at Easter including Redoute’s Choice, Fastnet Rock, Snitzel, High Chaparral, More Than Ready, Commands, Medaglia D’Oro, Shamardal, Charge Forward, Dane Shadow, Sebring and All American.

Rising average and median prices in both Session 1 and Session 2 are a clear endorsement of the respect that the international community has for yearlings offered at Easter.

Easter Yearlings go into the leading stables around the globe, giving them the best chance to reach their full potential, just as fellow graduates All Too Hard, Fastnet Rock, Exceed And Excel, Samantha Miss, Mosheen and company did.

Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale   Oaklands   2, 3, 4 & 5 March
Melbourne Premier is the only major thoroughbred auction in the world to record an increase in average price seven out of the last eight years.  Session 1 of the 2013 Sale finished with the average price jumping up almost 10% to $78,627.

The inaugural Blue Riband session recorded an average price of $116,564 at an 85% clearance rate.

Coupled with an honour roll growing in quality and quantity, such as Black Caviar, Igugu, Starspangledbanner, Sacred Kingdom and Ortensia, the Melbourne Premier Sale is simply irresistible.

Sydney Classic Yearling Sale Summer Book   Newmarket   19 & 20 January
Shrewd local, interstate and overseas buyers target the Classic Sale, as it continually rewards those that back their judgement on the racetrack.  The 2013 Summer Book recorded 13% increase in average and 25% increase in median prices.

Sydney Classic Yearling Sale Winter Book   Newmarket   15 June
Winter Book sold colts up to $100,000 and fillies to $80,000.  Now with successful Summer and Winter options, breeders should target Classic, just as buyers do.

Melbourne VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale   Oaklands   27 & 28 April
In Australia’s strongest racing state, the tremendous benefits available for Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold horses are well recognised.  Athletic, well-presented yearlings were in high demand at the inaugural Melbourne VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale.

HTBA Scone Yearling Sale   White Park   18 May
Local and interstate buyers love coming to the Hunter Valley in May for the Scone Cup Carnival year after year.  With profits going to the Hunter Thoroughbred Breeders Association the Scone Yearling Sale is the local sale for local breeders.

“Where and when breeders sell their yearlings is vital to commercial success,” Webster said.  “Inglis is very pleased to provide breeders with a range of honest market leading options to maximise the sale ring potential of every yearling accepted into the 2014 Inglis Select Yearling Sales Series.”
