A highly diversified catalogue featuring progeny of Australia and New Zealand’s leading stallions prepared by expert developers of young racing talent has been finalised for the 2020 Inglis Ready2Race Sale.
In total, 226 2YOs have been catalogued for the sale at Riverside on Tuesday October 20, following a thorough build up which includes breeze ups in three states and two countries.
An outstanding group of horse people will be preparing juveniles for the sale including the likes of Blake Ryan, Damian Lane, Jean Dubois, Will Forrester, Matt Vella, Michael Hickmott, Mel O’Gorman, Tal and Shaun Nolen, Frankie Stockdale, Dean Harvey, Hinnerk Hueppe and others.
The catalogue – the strongest ever assembled for an Australian 2YO Sale – features youngsters by the likes of Fastnet Rock, Sebring, Not A Single Doubt, Pierro, Zoustar, Written Tycoon, Deep Field, Vancouver, Lonhro, Nicconi, Dundeel, Hinchinbrook, Brazen Beau, Choisir, Ocean Park and All Too Hard to name just a few, as well as two colts by champion US sire Into Mischief and a filly by top-class French sire Siyouni.
First season stallions such as Capitalist, American Pharoah, Shalaa, Extreme Choice, Flying Artie, Frosted, Astern, Sooboog, Star Turn, Maurice, Divine Prophet and Tivaci etc are also represented.
The Inglis Ready2Race Sale has in recent years achieved the highest winners-to-runners ratio of any sale of its kind in Australasia.
Not only did this year’s G1 Doncaster Mile winner Nettoyer come through the Inglis Ready2Race Sale, since 2014 over 375 individual winners have emerged from the sale.
It has also been a significant boon for the Hong Kong market, with a stronger winners-to-runners ratio and greater average earnings per runner than any other Australian 2YO Sale in the same period.
The 2020 sale is scheduled to be a physical auction at Riverside Stables on Tuesday October 20.
Breeze ups will take place in NSW, VIC, QLD and New Zealand through mid-September, while an alternate breeze-up day is scheduled for Warwick Farm on the Friday prior to the auction.
High-quality video of each breeze will be available on the Inglis website within days of the gallops.
Inglis General Manager of Bloodstock Sales and Marketing Sebastian Hutch described the catalogue as “simply outstanding’’.
“The catalogue has unprecedented strength to it this year, particularly in terms of the people preparing the horses – it’s an awesome group of horse people and they know what it is to develop top-class horses because they are doing it regularly,’’ Hutch said.
“This is a market that is a legitimate source of Group One racehorses domestically and internationally and as confidence in the market has grown, so has the level of investment, which is reflected in the quality of horses on offer.
“The level of promotion of the sale will be second to none and we will be going to great lengths to facilitate engagement by buyers in the sale, irrespective of where in the world they are located.”
