Jill’s Angel underlined the value of the Inglis Melbourne Autumn yearling sale Jill’s Angel won the $100,000 Inglis Autumn Plate at Seymour on Tuesday.
Jill’s Angel (2f Invincible Spirit – Ithica by Canny Lad) was sold for $15,000 to trainer Peter Morgan by Basinghall Farm and has been a beneficiary of the Inglis Race Series in both starts to date. On debut last October, she ran third in the $250,000 Inglis Juvenile at Moonee Valley and her earnings now top $80,000 from just two starts.
Jill’s Angel’s added to the recent success for Tas Reilly’s Nagambie based Basinghall Farm, who also sold recent smart stakes-winner Red Colossus through the Oakland’s ring. Bassinghall Farm will offer seven yearlings in this year’s Melbourne Autumn yearling sale commencing this Thursday.
“It is a consistent theme with this sale that buyers secure great value for money,” Inglis Director Peter Heagney said.
“This season we have seen stakes winners like She’s Got Gears ($45,000), Periduki ($4,000) and Orbit Express (PI $18,500) underline how you can walk away with a quality yearling at this sale without spending a fortune.
“The unbeaten Our Baby Bonus ($42,500) is another, while recent Group 1 winners like Pompeii Ruler, Grand Journey and Lazer Sharp could each have been purchased for less than $20,000 out of this sale.”
The 2010 Autumn Yearling Sale will be held at Oaklands this week over two days, Thursday April 22 and Friday April 23 with 505 lots catalogued.
