A strong catalogue of 339 yearlings has been finalised for the Gold Yearling Sale.
To be held at Oaklands over the two days of May 16 and 17, the sale that produced this year’s G1 Australian Guineas winner Lunar Fox and this year's G1 Australasian Oaks victor Media Award will provide buyers another opportunity to secure potentially top-class racehorse at significant value.
Of the 339 yearlings catalogued, 184 are Super Vobis nominated, opening up so many added financial windfalls for owners.
Proven stallions such as Written Tycoon, Street Boss, Deep Field, Dundeel, Sebring, So You Think, Shamus Award, Lonhro, Toronado, Nicconi, All Too Hard, Star Witness, Starcraft, Magnus, Rubick and Smart Missile etc are represented, as are rising star sires including Capitalist, Extreme Choice, Flying Artie, American Pharoah, Frosted and Astern etc.
There are also yearlings by first season sires such as Russian Revolution, Merchant Navy, Pariah, Impending, Highland Reel, Caravaggio, Thronum, Tosen Stardom, Gold Standard etc.
Inglis’ Victorian Bloodstock Manager James Price said: “This sale represents another fantastic opportunity for buyers and investors to source value.
“Graduates include the likes of recent G1 winners Lunar Fox and Media Award, Malaguerra, I’ll Have A Bit, Mahamedeis, Gold Fields etc, all of whom could have been bought at affordable prices and this year’s catalogue is as strong as the company has ever offered.
“There is great demand for well-credentialed stock in Australia at the moment and for good reason – prizemoney levels are so strong and the racing industry has never been healthier.
“It’s great fun being involved in racehorse ownership, be it at a high level or having just a small percentage in a cheaper horse and I’ve got no doubt there will be countless success stories emerge from this Gold Sale catalogue in years to come.’’
For those who cannot attend Oaklands for the sale, Inglis’ world-class online bidding system will again be available, whilst the Inglis Bloodstock Team will be available to assist with any requirements in advance of the sale.
