The 2015 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale features more than 90 vendors from across Australia and New Zealand who will offer the progeny from 106 individual stallions, including exciting Victorian based freshman sires Master Of Design, Toorak Toff and Canford Cliffs.
Inglis’ Melbourne Bloodstock Director, Peter Heagney, said inspections had already begun at Oaklands and excitement was building ahead of Sunday, with the opening lot scheduled to enter the ring at 12pm.
“Premier has a proven record for unearthing champions in Australia, Hong Kong and South Africa, and with the outstanding quality presented by vendors here this week, I have no doubt that success will continue,” Heagney said.
“The next eight days promises to be a feast of first-class action for all thoroughbred enthusiasts, with the region’s tremendous racing and breeding on show here in Melbourne.”
Racing Victoria staff will have a permanent presence within the Black Caviar Bar precinct on each of the four days of the Premier Sale and will be available to offer detailed insight into the VOBIS schemes and thoroughbred ownership in Victoria.
