Inglis Chairman’s Sale: Lots of American Interest

In Tuesday's TDN, William Inglis Co.'s General Manager of Bloodstock Sales and Marketing Sebastian Hutch reflected on the results of the company's very successful Australian Easter Yearling Sale last month and took a look ahead at this Friday's Chairman's Sale, in which bloodstock professionals from all corners of the globe will have the opportunity to buy into some accomplished bloodstock. Amongst the 90 lots cataloged to the sale, to be conducted digitally, are pedigrees featuring runners familiar to an American audience, as well as several with European connections. To follow...

European Flair To Chairman’s Sale

It may not seem like it as of late, with people confined to their homes or at the very least their own countries, but Thoroughbred bloodstock remains a global currency. Friday's Inglis Chairman's Sale-to be conducted, like its Easter Sale, virtually from the company's headquarters at Warwick Farm in Sydney-is an excellent embodiment of this. The 90 fillies and mares catalogued for the boutique breeding stock sale represent many of the best families both domestically and from Europe and the U.S. And, like at any market-leading sale, the top offerings...

Hutch Optimistic Heading Into Inglis Chairman’s Sale

In 2017, the Chairman's Sale was added to the calendar at Australia's William Inglis Co., a boutique event similar in nature to Fasig-Tipton's Night of the Stars, the Goffs London and Champion Sales and the Arqana Arc Sale. The Chairman's Sale was created to present Australian buyers--and, indeed, an increasingly internationally based clientele--the rare opportunity to buy into Australian bloodstock of all ages.

De Burgh Applauds Inglis’s Quick Thinking

Last weekend, OTI Racing and partners' Quick Thinker (Aus) (So You Think {NZ}) provided a timely advertisement for Inglis's Easter Yearling Sale, where he had been bought 24 months' previously for $100,000 by Hubie de Burgh, when winning the G1 Australian Derby on the first day of The Championships at Royal Randwick. The Easter sale of 2018, when Quick Thinker went through the ring, looked much different than its latest renewal earlier this week, and the horse is perhaps appropriately named when considering the efforts that Inglis's personnel-as well as...

Spendthrift Australia Secures Top Lot

Stakes-placed mare Tizso Wicked (Aus) (Duporth {Aus}) topped the Inglis Digital February (Early) Online Sale, with Spendthrift Australia picking up the mare in foal to Street Boss for AU$150,000. Rushton Park offered the 8-year-old mare, who placed in the G3 Bow Mistress S. at her final start, having won six races all up. The additional appeal of her being in foal to Street Boss, having recently had her first foal by Astern (Aus), was compelling for Spendthrift. "She obviously has a very deep American female family and there is a...
