The cumulative gross sales for Victorian stallions reached a substantial $10,038,000, with an average selling price of $104,858 and a median of $70,000. Bhima Thoroughbred’s colt by Darley Victoria’s Street Boss out of the mare Dance Card (Lot 199), the top lot from Victorian-based stallions, fetched an impressive $375,000, showcasing the influence and desirability of Victoria's thoroughbred sires.

Gross sales for Victorian buyers reached an impressive $12,731,500, with an average purchase price of $90,294 and a median of $70,000. The standout moment for Victorian buyers was the acquisition of North Bloodstock’s Too Darn Hot x Hell It’s Hot (Lot 325), the top lot, which commanded a remarkable $600,000 when selling to Yulong, underscoring their discerning choices and reinforcing Victoria's prominence in the Thoroughbred industry.

Overall, another successful sale for Victoria, as the build up to Inglis Premier, Victoria’s ‘Premier’ Sale, continues. See you there!
