Premier Sale done and dusted for 2018!

There was action aplenty at Oaklands Junction this week with the Inglis Premier Sale

A decade of price growth in the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale came to an end this year despite some excellent results for a series of breeders.

The average prices in Book 1 were the second highest on record for the Premier sale with the sale topper being a Fastnet Rock filly bred by Campolina’s Ian and Vicki Bell and offered by Rushton Park. She was bought by Godolphin Australia for $500,000.

“She was a beautiful filly. We sold her full sister last year, but this filly had a little bit more scope, length and more leg…we were hoping for around $400,000, so to get $500,000 is a great result,” said Rushton’s Kayley Johnson.
