Entries Open for Major 2012 Inglis Yearling Sales
6th Jul 2011
Entries are now open for next year’s four major Inglis yearling sales – Easter, Premier, Classic and Autumn.
Inglis offered 35% of the 6,800 yearlings offered for sale in Australia and New Zealand in 2011, clearing an enviable 81.5% at Inglis Yearling Sales – well clear of the other two major auction houses who failed to average 75%.
This is the third year in a row that Inglis has achieved a superior clearance rate to that of its rivals, an important consideration for breeders contemplating their entries for the 2012 sales season.
Vendors can download Entry Forms for Inglis’ 2012 Select Yearling Sale Series from each of the sale pages or utilise the Inglis Online Entry facility.
The 2012 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale will run from April 10-12 next year.
Easter remains the southern hemisphere’s number one sale and boasts the largest buying bench of any sale. The 2011 average was $100,000 more than any other sale in Australia or New Zealand this year, with 77% of the $500,000+ yearlings sold in the region graduating from Easter.
Acknowledging the global role of the sale Easter 2012 will include an inaugural session of yearlings bred to Northern Hemisphere time.
At Easter, yearlings are physically primed to optimise their value and this attracts the world’s most respected judges of horseflesh to Newmarket, taking horses back into the world’s best stables, ensuring each yearling sold gets its maximum chance to fulfil its potential.
The 2012 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale will be held from February 27 to March 1, 2012.
It has become Australia’s most talked about sale, basking in the glory of 2008 graduate Black Caviar being rated the World’s best racehorse at the present time. Peter Moody’s great mare is joined by the current undisputed star of South African racing, Igugu, and the pair follow on from Horse of the Year Weekend Hussler, dual hemisphere champion Starspangledbanner and Hong Kong’s multiple Horse of the Year Sacred Kingdom.
Thanks to the burgeoning reputation of graduates’ racetrack performance, Premier’s average has climbed 94% to $71,500 in the past decade and the buying bench continues to grow, with 294 individual buyers from nine different countries represented at the 2011 sale.
No less than 40 lots grossed more than $150,000 this year and it is the booming sale in Australia’s racing capital which now demands a global focus.
The 2012 Inglis Sydney Classic Yearling Sale will be held from January 22-24.
Thanks to its proven performance as a nursery of champions and having a strong affinity with unearthing future stars from promising young sires (Hurtle Myrtle/Dane Shadow, Pressday/Domesday, Secret Admirer/Dubawi and Chance Bye/Snitzel) Classic attracts a strong local and international buying bench.
At this year’s sale, 39% of all yearlings sold were to clients outside New South Wales.
The 2012 Inglis Melbourne Autumn Yearling Sale will be held on April 29 and 30.
The Autumn sale average has increased 32% in just four years and is the ideal sale for Super Vobis qualified yearlings due to the ever growing local buying bench.
Results show buyers are willing to pay for the right article, as the top price has gone from $42,500 in 2008 to $80,000 this year.
