Easter statistics you need to know
8th Mar 2012
The start of the 96th annual Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale is only a month away and if statistics are anything to go by anyone serious about racing at the highest level cannot afford to miss it.
Mosheen’s demolition last Saturday in the Australian Guineas marked the 60th Group One victory for an Inglis sale graduate in an Australian three-year-old event in the last ten years.
Time-honoured Classics such as the Australian Guineas, VRC Oaks, Caulfield Guineas, One Thousand Guineas, Spring Champion Stakes and Rosehill Guineas, along with the renamed Randwick Guineas and Vinery Stud Stakes, have fallen the way of Inglis graduates more than graduates of any other sales company.
“Seven Caulfield Guineas, seven VRC Oaks, five One Thousand Guineas and five Australian Guineas from the last ten running’s of each is a tremendous achievement for the horses sold here at Inglis and I congratulate our loyal clients on so much success,” Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster points out.
“Despite the myths, Easter has also produced more Victoria Derby winners in the last ten years than any other individual sale and the statistics are tipping Easter’s way in races such as the Australian Oaks thanks to Absolutely’s victory in 2011,” Webster stated.
26% of the Group One races for three-year-olds that were won by a horse offered at auction were won by an Easter graduate, a fantastic result for a sale that makes up just 8% of the Australasian yearling sale crop and 3% of the total foal crop.
Easter sale graduates in their three-year-old season have also excelled outside their age group. Leading stallions Fastnet Rock and Exceed And Excel both claimed Australia’s Champion Sprinter award at three, after being offered at the Australian Easter Yearling Sale two years earlier.
“It’s plain to see that yearlings purchased at Easter set the benchmark on the track and at stud, and we are very much looking forward to offer another 579 of Australasia’s finest bred and conformed yearlings entered for auction at this year’s Easter sale,” Webster added.
Representing the cream of the thoroughbred yearling crop from Australia and New Zealand’s leading breeders, the depth of pedigree and strictness of conformation selection criteria is unsurpassed at any other Southern Hemisphere Sale.
The 2012 Easter Sale will be held at Inglis’ Newmarket Complex in Sydney from April 10 to 12, between the Australian Turf Club’s Golden Slipper and Derby weekends.
