3-in-1 package tops another million-dollar Inglis Digital Sale
11th Mar 2020
Encosta de Lago mare Layo Layo has topped Inglis Digital’s March (Early) Online Sale for $95,000, the 12th consecutive catalogue to gross more than $1 million.
Out of Stakes-winning mare Tantra – a sister-in-blood to Liberty Rose and from the family of recent Widden Stakes winner Away Game – Layo Layo was offered by Richard McClenahan’s Mullaglass Stud in foal to Press Statement and with her maiden filly by Hellbent at foot.
A six-time winner herself, Layo Layo was secured by Brett Gall of Gall Bloodstock after a late bidding war between several parties.
“I really liked the mare and she will go to our stallion I Am Invincible, who I raced with my father Ray and we still own 50% with Arthur and Harry Mitchell of Yarraman Park Stud,” Gall said.
“We scan through every catalogue when they come out as we’re trading stock all the time and the 3-in-1 package was a big attraction with Layo Layo – plus I find the buying process very straightforward on the platform.
“Harry Mitchell went and had a look at her and she’ll now go to Yarraman with her Hellbent filly at foot, before being covered by Hellbent’s sire – I Am Invincible – next season.
We’ve actually got a quality Hellbent on the ground at the moment that’s a standout, a colt from Chickasaw and that also gave me the confidence to buy this mare.”
Mullaglass Stud have been a strong supporter of the Inglis Digital platform and along with Layo Layo, offered two other broodmares in the March (Early) Online Sale: Lady Rah Rah in foal to Invader and Light My Fire, in foal to Kermadec – with a 100% clearance rate.
“I’m delighted with our result today,” McClenahan said.
“Having bred Hellbent (an Inglis Classic Yearling Sale graduate), it’s great to see his first progeny received so well with the sale of Layo Layo for $95,000.
“Selling through Inglis Digital is always so easy and it’s a great option for vendors in the marketplace.”
