The VOBIS Gold Sale has recorded across-the-board gains at Oaklands Junction highlighted by a record clearance-rate of 87%.
“The benefits from Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold are too good to overlook,” Inglis director Peter Heagney said. “It was pleasing to see many new faces as well as our regular buyers bidding for the great prize money and bonuses in the schemes.
“There wasn’t a dominant buyer but the strength of the market remained right to the end with well-presented yearlings regularly exceeding expectations.”
Day 1 on Sunday saw Lang Lang vendor Silver Ferns Farms top the session with a Rothesay – Madam Bubbles colt bought by Laming Racing for $62,000.
Day 2 surpassed that figure with two lots that made $90,000. The Star Witness x Strikeline filly (Lot 313) from Golden Grove took over at the top of the leader-board and she was joined by a So You Think x Danaupair Starlet colt (Lot 333) from Woodside Park Stud.
Premier Victorian trainer Darren Weir was the leading individual buyer with six yearlings for a total of $150,000. The Best Presented draft was awarded to Greta West based vendor Bucklee Farm.
