Inglis Melbourne Autumn average rises 23%

A Dash For Cash colt topped Day 2 at the Inglis Melbourne Autumn yearling sale on Friday.  The grey colt made $42,000 when offered by Basinghall Farm.  He is from Caulfield winner Ashtaroth (Ashkalani) who also earned black-type at The Heath when placed behind Lovely Jubly in the Listed 2003 Emirates Stakes.

Basinghall Farm owner Tas Rielley sold Jill’s Angel (Invincible Spirit) for $15,000 at the 2009 Melbourne Autumn Sale and she won the $100,000 Inglis Autumn Plate at Seymour on Tuesday.

In all, 253 horses were sold for turnover of $3.10 million.  The average climbed to $12,271 which was a gain of 23%.  The clearance rate reached 80%.

“It’s been quite a satisfactory sale,” Inglis Director Peter Heagney said.  “It was pleasing to see so many foreign buyers taking an active interest, in particular a number of different buyers from Korea, who took away 10 horses from the sale.  The popularity of Super VOBIS was also very evident, with those horses qualified attracting strong interest.”
