Whitlam springs eternal at Newmarket

The Inglis Spring Sale at Newmarket generated good competition from a wide buying bench that spent $626,000 on 98 lots.  The clearance rate was 92%.

Darley brought a strong draft of 14 horses to the sale and provided the two highest priced lots.  Whitlam fetched $38,000 for a Victorian based buyer.   Spain brought equal second highest bid and is also going to Victoria for $28,000.  He’s a full brother to Darley’s first crop stallion Denman.

“Today’s sale was highlighted by an excellent clearance rate,” Sydney director Jonathan D’Arcy commented.  “There was also a strong participation on-line.”

The next Inglis sale is the Sydney Summer Sale on Friday, December 7.  The Melbourne December Sale is scheduled for Friday, December 14.
