Supplementary entries have bolstered the inaugural Inglis VOBIS Gold yearling sale at Oaklands on April 28 and 29.
A total of 200 Select Session yearlings that are already paid up for Super VOBIS will be offered this Sunday. The 166 lot General Session of Super VOBIS and non-Super VOBIS yearlings will then be offered on Monday.
The sires of supplementary entries catalogued include Flying Spur, Reset, Duke Of Marmalade, Starcraft, Nicconi and Rock Of Gibraltar. These are on top of an already strong main catalogue which features the progeny of Bel Esprit, Statue Of Liberty, Written Tycoon, Domesday, Bianconi, Desert King, Not A Single Doubt, Hard Spun, Magnus, New Approach, O’Lonhro, Soldier’s Tale, Shinzig, Host, Turffontein, Von Costa de Hero and Sebring.
VOBIS Gold thoroughbreds receive exclusive entry in the VOBIS Gold Race Series and they also race for up to 350 lucrative prizemoney bonuses all year round into the fourth, fifth and even sixth year of their racing career.
Under the VOBIS Gold Scheme the owner who wins a standard $15,000 Victorian Country Maiden with a VOBIS Gold and Super VOBIS bonus attached will take home a total $27,410. That’s more than three-times the normal first prize of $9,000.
Similarly, in Melbourne, the owner of a qualified horse winning a standard $80,000 Saturday metropolitan race with a VOBIS Gold and Super VOBIS bonus attached will collect a total $78,100.
