The catalogue for the 2012 Inglis Easter Broodmare Sale is now available for viewing on the Inglis website. The sale features 668 lots and will be held from April 17 to 19 during the Sydney autumn carnival.
This year’s Easter Broodmare Sale takes on an exciting new look with the auction split into three separate sessions; Super Select Session, Select Session and General Session.
The Super Select Session, covering Lots 1 to 223, with be held on Tuesday, April 17. It encompasses 63 individual stakes winners including Champion New Zealand 2YO Anabandana along with Group 1 winners Response, Demerger and Episode.
“The response from vendors has been overwhelming,” Inglis Bloodstock Director Jonathan D’Arcy said. “Unfortunately we had the draw the line with 223 offerings on Day 1, but there are plenty of top prospects catalogued in Days 2 and 3.”
The GSA Bloodstock unreserved reduction highlights Day 2 (Lots 224 to 456) followed by Day 3 (Lots 457 to 668).
“We look forward to welcoming all local, interstate and overseas buyers to Newmarket in search of the mare to start their own dynasty, just as Rick Jamieson has done with Helsinge and Cecile Smith with Triassic,” D’Arcy added.
Jamieson bought Black Caviar’s dam Helsinge at the 2005 Easter Broodmare Sale for $115,000. Smith purchased So You Think’s dam Triassic for just $16,000 before sending her to High Chaparral. Smith and Mike Moran will offer So You Think’s brother at next month’s Easter Yearling Sale as Lot 436.
The dams of Champion 2YO Sepoy and Melbourne Cup winners Shocking and Viewed were also purchased from the Inglis Easter Broodmare Sale prior to their progeny’s Group 1 victories.
