Inglis Classic Sale round-up

14 Feb 2022

The Inglis Classic Sale came to a close last week and by all reports it was a record-breaking one!


We presented a draft of 12 at Riverside Stables and were thrilled to achieve a 100% clearance rate, with all 12 horses selling in the ring at an average of $115,000. 


Our top lot was the colt (pictured) by Capitalist from stakes placed Lonhro mare, Roeinda, that sold to Bryce Heys/Ellerslie Lodge for $220,000. This was closely followed by the Written By filly from Estelle (Fastnet Rock), a successful pinhook for her owners being a $45,000 weanling buy, then selling for $200,000 to Rohan Hughes and Grahame Begg Racing - none other than the connections of Written By himself.


Among numerous other fantastic results in the draft, we presented two horses in the Highway session of the Classic Sale, that sold for $140,000 and $155,000 respectively, well above the session average of $48,133. The colt by Harry Angel (lot 763) from Caronia was the third highest priced lot in the Highway session at $155,000 selling to Healy Racing, Furlong Thoroughbreds and SJC Thoroughbreds. 


At $140,000, lot 682 - the filly by Pride of Dubai from Miss Chaparral - wasn't far behind, as the fifth highest price in the Highway session.


Fresh off selling in Sydney, we now focus on the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, where our high quality draft of seven horses will begin parading on February 23rd at Oaklands.
