Inglis Melbourne Sale returns 97% clearance rate

Encosta De Lago mare Miss Presidential topped Day 2 at the Inglis Melbourne August Sale on Friday.  From the family of Rock Of Gibraltar, she made $50,000.  Lonhro mare Miss Monhro topped the supplementary session when knocked down for $45,000.  In all, 182 horses were sold on Friday for turnover of $1.02 million.

“The 97% clearance rate reflected the strong demand for racing stock,” Inglis Director Peter Heagney said.  “The better performed racehorses and nicely bred fillies all sold extremely well.”

Over the two days of the sale, 292 lots changed hands for $1.96 million.
