Inglis launches 2011 Classic Sale

Inglis has launched its 2011 Sydney Classic Yearling Sale online.  The catalogue consists of 575 lots to be sold at Newmarket on January 23, 24 and 25.

At an average of just $30,000 few sales anywhere can boast Classic’s remarkable record in producing outstanding racehorses, capable of winning all over the world.

Group 1 winners Whobegotyou, Triple Honour, Pressday and Secret Admirer head this year’s leading Classic graduates.  Other feature winners include G2 and G3 winners Whitefriars, Ilovethiscity, Chance Bye, That’s Not It, Rightfully Yours and Brilliant Light.

The Classic Sale has an affinity for unearthing future stars at an average of just $30,000.

Previous Classic Sale graduates include Whobegotyou (Street Cry), God’s Own (Redoute’s Choice) and Choisir (Danehill Dancer) were all G1 winners before going on to stand at stud.

First-season sires represented in the 2011 catalogue include Zizou (14 lots), Henny Hughes (13), Excellent Art (12), Librettist (11) and Shaft (11).

Second-season sires with lots at the 2011 Sale are headed by Strada (17), Holy Roman Emperor (11), Valixir (8) and Excites (7).

“We will offer 50 extra lots next year,” Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster said.  “With $120 million dollars to flow into Racing in NSW in the forthcoming years thanks to the recent favourable result in the Federal Court, there is no better time to get involved in horse racing in this State”.

In addition to the aforementioned promising young sires, the catalogue comprising 82% BOBS eligible yearlings includes a vast majority of lots by top echelon stallions.

Recent additions to the Group 1 sire ranks Shamardal, Domesday and Dubawi, are all represented at next year’s sale, as are proven stallions like Charge Forward, Choisir, Commands, Dane Shadow, Danzero, Encosta de Lago, Fastnet Rock , Flying Spur, General Nediym, Hussonet, Lonhro and Stratum.
