Inglis Easter Day 2: Jamie Inglis Points To Bargains
Although obviously delighted with the $3 million record-equalling sale, William Inglis Acting Managing Director, Jamie Inglis last night made particular reference to the value still to be found at Easter: "While it's very exciting to see $3 million yearlings being sold, it is equally important that the crowd, many new faces among them, understand that there is plenty of value at the other end of the scale. During the past two days we have sold 52 yearlings for $100,000 or less and it's worth remembering that many of our Easter graduates have raced at the elite level without a price tag to match. William Inglis sale graduates won 23 Gr1 races last season and the majority of them being sold at Easter. Bearing in mind that 3 of the Gr1 winners from this season - Red Dazzler, Mentality and Teranaba - were all sold at Easter for $100,000 or less, while 4-time Group One winner, Racing To Win, was knocked down for just $40,000 and has subsequently won over $2.8 million."
