Darley dominates Inglis Melbourne Sale

Darley discards filled all bar one of the Top 10 horses that changed hands at the Inglis Melbourne March Sale on Friday.

A total of 252 lots sold for $1.49 million at a very strong 95% clearance rate.  Of those that found new homes, 42 were sold online.

Darley gelding Union Gap came into the auction off a win at Sandown on Wednesday and proved it’s hard to beat winning form by topping the sale with a $82,000 bid from Tommy Hughes Jnr.

The other Darley gallopers on the leader-board were Creance, Proverb, Sari, Kansas, Bank Notes, Rapid, Incrimination and Zuhayr.

Top priced broodmare Miss Snowhawk sold to Damon Gabbedy’s Belmont Bloodstock for $60,000.  A half-sister to Group 3 winner Hvasstan, she was sold in foal to Smart Missile and with foal at foot by Wanted.
