New southern hemisphere record Set by Inglis Digital Online Sale
27th Jun 2019
Regally bred filly Set Goals (Snitzel x Your Life Style) set a new southern hemisphere Online Thoroughbred Auction record last night, selling for $321,000 through Inglis Digital.
The Arrowfield Stud offering topped the Inglis Digital June Online Auction, selling to Dave Morrissey’s Cannon Hayes Stud.
Set Goals was one of several outstanding results for the June sale, which also included:
*Lot 217 – Mandayana in the Broodmare category – offered by Ciaron Maher Racing and purchased by Halo Racing for $100,000
*Lot 73 – Hussy’s Glow in the Race Fillies category – offered by Prime Thoroughbreds and purchased by Mitchell Bloodstock for $70,000
*Lot 197 – Gypsy Snitz in the Broodmare category – offered by Newhaven Park and purchased by Ben Kwok for $70,000
*Lot 240 – Ringstrasse in the Broodmare category – offered in foal to Hellbent by Glastonbury Farms and purchased by Darby Bloodstock for $65,000
*Lot 126 – Capitalist x I Am Gypsy weanling – offered by Newgate (as agent) and purchased by Mark Egge for $55,000
Set Goals (pictured) became the seventh horse this year to sell for $100,000 or more through an Inglis Digital Online Auction, and 21st in total since the platform was launch in May 2017.
The June Online Sale has so far grossed $1,716,150, making it the second-best to date.
Set Goals will be transferred to Cameron Crockett’s Scone stables and race on until September, when she will likely be served by Newgate Farm stallion Capitalist.
“If we could get a win or two out of her before she becomes a mum, great, but if not, she’s still a very good buy as I think she will make a very good broodmare,’’ Morrissey said.
“I worked at Arrowfield a long time so I know the family very well and I actually saw her I Am Invincible weanling half sister at Newgate a few weeks back and she is an absolute belter, so I’m really excited to get my hands on Set Goals.
“The Inglis online auction is a great concept, it’s easy, seamless, I have full confidence using it again as a great platform to buy or sell horses.’’
Arrowfield’s Jon Freyer said: “We’re really delighted to achieve an outstanding result for our client, and setting a record shows that online selling has well and truly come of age.
“Congratulations to the team at Inglis who promoted the sale very actively and generated terrific interest in Set Goals.
“The online sale is a valuable option to have for particular horses, it works for buyers and vendors and it’s certainly a format we’re very comfortable using.’’
Inglis Digital’s Business Manager Nick Melmeth congratulated Morrissey and all buyers on their purchases.
“The Inglis Online platform has again asserted itself as the best online platform for breeders, vendors and owners to sell their product,’’ Melmeth said.
“The catalogues are consistently strong, the sale results are consistently strong and the buying bench is growing every month from not only all over Australia but also New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Macau, Korea to name just a few, and that’s something we’re always working on for our vendors.
“I’d like to wish Dave and the team at Cannon Hayes Stud all the very best with Set Goals and while she’s certainly been a headline filly for our online sale, we now hope she becomes a headline mare for Cannon Hayes Stud moving forward.’’
