Melbourne-based Stephanie Grentell broke new ground at the Inglis Scone Sale last week as the first female to auctioneer at a public thoroughbred yearling sale in Australia.

Grentell, 30, has been with Inglis for almost seven years after starting as a receptionist at the firm’s Melbourne office.  “I always wanted to work as a bloodstock agent but didn’t think about auctioneering until clients and friends suggested I have a shot at it,” she told The Land newspaper.  “It took a couple of hours after the sale to relax and realise what I had achieved.”

Grentell had previous stints at Baramul and Widden Studs in NSW as well as Phoenix Park and Little Plains in Victoria before starting work at Oaklands Junction.
