Champions Of The Turf
William Inglis & Son Ltd have played a vital role in Australian racing history, with many of the nation's finest thoroughbreds passing through the Newmarket & Oaklands sale rings.
Champions of all shapes and sizes, not to mention countless Derby, Oaks and Melbourne Cup winners have all paraded beneath the world famous fig tree in Newmarket. Heroic, Amounis, Flight, Hallmark, Evening Peal, and Wenona Girl, right through to modern day stars such as Naturalism, Schillaci, Shogun Lodge, Universal Prince, Fairy King Prawn, Silent Witness, Choisir, Takeover Target and of course, the great Might and Power.
While Oaklands is quickly building an enviable list of graduates that graced the ring including Champions Alinghi, Weekend Hussler, Starspangledbanner, Sacred Kingdom and the undefeated World Champion Sprinter Black Caviar.
The Sydney Turf Club's Golden Slipper Stakes, a Group One event for two year olds first run in 1957, has had a profound influence on Australian racing. More than any other single race, it has shaped and inspired our breeding industry with many of its winners going on to achieve great success at stud.
Golden Slipper winners have a long and happy association with William Inglis & Son Ltd. Some 20 past winners have emerged from our yearling sales including champion sires Luskin Star, Marscay, Rory's Jester and Flying Spur and more recently Miss Finland, Forensics and Mossfun can be added to that extensive list.
Our reputation as a thoroughbred auction house is intertwined with that of the horses we sell, a century of turf legends has ensured that William Inglis & Son Ltd is the first name in Australian bloodstock.
