|Reg Inglis, the Manager
Director of William Inglis & Son is excited about the prospect of the final day of
selling at the Australian Easter Yearling sale at Newmarket in Sydney tomorrow.
Inglis is predicting the final session of the three day selling spectacle to
be the strongest of the sale.
"I have an inkling you'd better be here tomorrow,"
he said with a twinkle in his eye.
The second session at the Newmarket ring has just concluded
with what Inglis described as "another very satisfactory session."
"We had an average tonight of $156,110, which was nearly
exactly the same as last night's figure," Inglis said.
"Tonight's result is pretty positive because I feel the
best of the sessions is still to come tomorrow," he added.
Tonight's sales topper was a Sunday Silence filly who was
sold to a mystery buyer, understood to be John Lever, for $575,000. The filly is from the
American stakes winner Laurel Avenue.
Another highlight of the evening was the sale of the
Zabeel-Let's Elope colt to John Foote (acting as agent for Tony Santic) for $550,000 just
The second session of the sale had a clearance rate of 79 per
cent, just a tick under yesterday's figures.
The current median price of the sale is $110,000.
If Reg Inglis can be believed, and with his experience in the
company that should be expected, the best is still yet to come.
"Tonight was a weak part of the sale and tomorrow should
be pretty interesting," he concluded with a wry smile.
