A Dash For Cash colt topped Day 2 at the Inglis Melbourne Autumn yearling sale on Friday. The grey colt made $42,000 when offered by Basinghall Farm. He is from Caulfield winner Ashtaroth (Ashkalani) who also earned black-type at The Heath when placed behind Lovely Jubly in the Listed 2003 Emirates Stakes.
Basinghall Farm owner Tas Rielley sold Jill’s Angel (Invincible Spirit) for $15,000 at the 2009 Melbourne Autumn Sale and she won the $100,000 Inglis Autumn Plate at Seymour on Tuesday.
In all, 253 horses were sold for turnover of $3.10 million. The average climbed to $12,271 which was a gain of 23%. The clearance rate reached 80%.
“It’s been quite a satisfactory sale,” Inglis Director Peter Heagney said. “It was pleasing to see so many foreign buyers taking an active interest, in particular a number of different buyers from Korea, who took away 10 horses from the sale. The popularity of Super VOBIS was also very evident, with those horses qualified attracting strong interest.”
