Inglis Great Southern Sale Review

The recent Inglis Great Southern Sale was the last physical auction for the season and the main breeding stock sale for Victorian vendors and stallions.

The weanling session of the sale saw a gross of $11,906,000, representing a 19% increase year-on-year. With 379 weanlings offered and a clearance rate of 68%, the average sale price was $46,508.

Blue Gum Farm secured top honors as the leading vendor by aggregate at this year's Great Southern Sale. Offering 33 weanlings, they achieved an aggregate of $1,090,000. A highlight was Lot 148, a colt by Swettenham’s Toronado (IRE), which fetched $300,000 and was sold to Kaha Nui Farm in New Zealand.

Rosemont Stud closely followed, enjoying a successful sale of 25 weanlings with an aggregate of $878,500. The standout was Lot 7, a filly by superstar Frankel (GB), sold to Gary Harding for $525,000.

In terms of sires, Toronado (IRE) featured prominently, with his progeny amassing a total aggregate of $935,000 for the nine lots sold at an average sale price of $103,889.

The sale also featured weanlings from the first crop of Wooded (IRE). With four lots catalogued, three were sold, with the top lot fetching $60,000, sold to Woburn Farm. This result is promising for the young sire by Wootton Bassett (GB).

The broodmare session offered a catalogue of 67 broodmares, boasting an average sale price of $31,500.

From the small but select offering of mares, Stonehouse Thoroughbreds stole the show with the top two lots of the mares session. Lot 503, Naiconi (Nicconi), fetched $160,000 to the bid of Mitchell Bloodstock, and Lot 461, Meetmein Melbourne (Russian Revolution), sold for $110,000 to Belmont Bloodstock Agency.
