The Inglis Melbourne March Sale recorded an excellent clearance rate of 90% at Oaklands Junction on Friday.
A total of 197 lots realised an aggregate of over $1.74 million with the highlights coming out of the Darley and Team Williams horses. Inglis director Peter Heagney said the March Sale reinforced the strength of the Victorian auction system with good competition by buyers from all states of Australia and New Zealand.
Redoute’s Choice stallion Wales shared top spot on the leader-board at $50,000. The Team Williams stakes winner was sold to a Queensland based client of Inglis.
He was followed into the sale ring by stakes-placed gelding Practiced (Encosta de Lago) who equalled that price when purchased by Shane Morrissey.
Street Cry three year-old Torbay was top-priced among the Darley draft at $45,000. He was placed in a Kembla Grange maiden at his penultimate start in January.
