A powerful catalogue full of Stakes-winning race mares, broodmares in foal to some of the world’s leading stallions as well as stallion shares and blueblood weanlings highlight the inaugural The Chairman’s Sale – Session II for Elite Breeding Prospects.

Inglis’ National Bloodstock Manager Jonathan D’Arcy admitted the strength of the inaugural The Chairman’s Sale exceeded all expectations.
“When we invited entries to this sale our goal was to put a selection of top class bloodstock in front of the national and international buying bench that gathers in Sydney every Easter,’’ D’Arcy said.
“The support for the sale has been great and to produce a catalogue that encompasses 25 top class weanlings, several Stakes-performed mares still racing, 50 top quality broodmares in foal to some of the world’s best stallions as well as the opportunity to purchase a breeding right or share in three of our leading stallions is just what we envisaged.’’
Wildcard entries to the Chairman’s Sale will close on Monday April 3.
The Chairman’s Sale Session II is in the middle of a big fortnight of horse sales at Inglis.
