Sale Overview

The 2015 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale reached great heights through three tremendous days of selling, as the Session I statistics hit seven year highs and Session II set more records.

“As stated throughout the Inglis Easter marketing campaign a lot goes into realising a champion, but it is thanks our skilful breeders and vendors that some are certainly born great. We are delighted that sale ring greatness was achieved at Inglis Easter this year,” said Inglis’ Managing Director Mark Webster.

“The strength of the buying bench and the catalogue assembled has resulted in a Session I gross over $100 million and record results from the growing second Session,” Webster said.

352 yearlings from Session I were sold at an average of $290,881 and median of $200,000, all at a clearance rate of 83%.

Session II didn't disappoint either setting new record median and gross since being introduced in 2009. 97 lots were sold at an average of $93,923 and record median of $80,000, resulting in the record gross of $9,110,500.

57 lots by 18 different sires were sold for $500,000 or more, well up on the 37 lots recorded at the 2014 Easter Sale.

Ten incredible examples of quality bloodstock sold for more than $1,000,000, headed by a colt by Snitzel from Admirelle (Lot 264) offered by John Muir’s Milburn Creek. A brother to Group 1 winner Sizzling, the colt was purchased for $2,200,000 by Tim Stakemire on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum.

Lot 271, also by Snitzel, made $1,800,000 from the draft of Arrowfield Stud. Out of Champion Australian Three-year-old filly and Inglis graduate Alinghi, the colt sold to David Raphael and Gerald Ryan.

Fastnet Rock continued his huge influence on the yearling market, with 47 of his progeny selling at the leading average price of $476,809. The top priced filly at the 2015 Easter Sale was Lot 323, a daughter of Fastnet Rock and the well-related mare Candlelight which sold to Tom Magnier for $1,750,000 from the draft of Segenhoe Stud.

Lot 283 set a new Australian record price for a yearling by a first season sire sold at auction when the Turangga Farm colt by Sepoy out of Group 1 winning Canny Lad mare Ancient Song sold for $1,600,000 to James Harron Bloodstock. Sepoy was the leading first season sire at the sale with 11 of his yearlings selling at an average of $379,091.

Shadwell Stud secured the highest priced yearling in Session II, paying $500,000 for Lot 504 (Snitzel x Appear) from Newhaven Park.

Along with Lot 504, Shadwell Stud were the busiest individual buyer at Easter for the third consecutive year, purchasing 19 Lots for a total outlay of $6,615,000 across the three days of selling.

While Shadwell were the leading individual buyer, the China Horse Club bought 21 horses with various partners for $9,125,000, and Gai Waterhouse signed for 23 yearlings for $6,545,000 in conjunction with different Australian and international entities (1 with BBA Ireland, 1 with Coolmore and Stonestreet Stables, 1 with First Light Racing, and 16 with Julian Blaxland).

Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum purchased four lots for $5,015,000, while other buyers to spend $2,000,000 or more were Coolmore Australia (4 for $3,850,000), James Harron Bloodstock (7 for $3,640,000), Asian Bloodstock Services (6 for $2,720,000), George Moore Bloodstock (5 for $3,035,000), Vinery Stud (6 for $2,340,000), John Foote Bloodstock (7 for $2,185,000), Hong Kong Jockey Club (5 for $2,050,000) and Hawkes Racing (8 for $2,105,000).

Arrowfield Stud finished the sale leading the list of vendors, having sold 28 yearlings across both Sessions for $10,695,000.

Coolmore Stud (26 sold for $9,640,000), Segenhoe Stud (14 for $7,770,000), Yarraman Park (22 for $5,755,000), Kitchwin Hills (20 for $5,695,000) and Widden Stud (33 for $5,170,000) round out the top six vendors by aggregate.

Milburn Creek, Tyreel Stud and Segenhoe Stud finished Session I as the leading vendors by average (3 or more sold), recording averages of $679,167, $601,667 and $555,000 respectively.

“The diversity of buyers, sires and vendors represented at the top of the yearling market is a great indicator for the overall confidence in the Inglis Easter product and our great Australian industry,” adds Mark Webster.

“We have seen industry players from around the world team up to invest in Australian bloodstock, and it is really encouraging that local syndicators have also been very active up to $200,000, allowing a wider group of thoroughbred enthusiasts to join together in racing these great Inglis Easter yearlings,” Webster concluded.
