Over 240 broodmares and race fillies are set to be offered following a parade of Victoria’s first season sires at 12 noon on Thursday.

“Australian breeders have an outstanding opportunity to enhance their broodmare band on the eve of the forthcoming breeding season,” said Inglis Melbourne Director Peter Heagney.  “This August Sale has assembled many well-credentialed mares, some directly off the racetrack and others in foal to some exciting young stallions as well as those in foal to proven sires.
