Of these, 608 yearlings are offered by 44 Victorian vendors, contributing to 76% of the overall catalogue. 66% (528) of the catalogues yearlings are VOBIS Silver nominated. Additionally, Victorian-based stallions are well-represented, with 371 progeny featured in the catalogue, accounting for 46%.

The spectrum of stallions encompasses proven sires such as Written Tycoon (30 lots) and Toronado (29 lots), young sires with successful runners like Alabama Express (21 lots) and Blue Point (19 lots), and top-class racehorses represented by their first crop- progeny, including Ghaiyyath (7 lots) and Hanseatic (30 lots).

The Inglis Premier Sale has consistently proven to be a reliable source of high-quality horses, with 27 graduates winning Group 1 races since 2018 and 33 graduates claiming victories in races exceeding $1 million since 2019. Furthermore, all horses purchased at the sale are eligible for nomination in the lucrative Inglis Race Series.
