All yearlings offered at the sale are eligible for entry into the revamped $8 million Inglis Race Series.
Pay-up to the race series will, among other things, see each yearling eligible for the inaugural $2million Inglis Millennium for 2YOs – and the $1m Inglis Sprint for 3YOs and many other lucrative races - as part of the new annual Inglis Race Day at Warwick Farm, from February 2019.
Next Saturday night’s action begins at 6pm and will again feature the Gold Riband session, for select yearlings with the pedigree and conformation to exceed in the elite 2YO races.
Inglis will pay the initial Golden Slipper entry fee for each horse sold during that session, which covers Lots 58-120 on Saturday night, February 10.
Inglis will also pay a $100,000 bonus split between the named vendor and supplier of the session’s first Stakes winner.
Auctioneering on Sunday February 11, Monday February 12 and Tuesday February 13 begins at 11am following Saturday’s evening session.
