Inglis Autumn Sydney: 1st Live Internet Bidding
Yesterday's Inglis Autumn Thoroughbred Sale was also the 1st to feature live internet bidding & included 27 registered & credit-approved on-line bidders from all over Australia. Of the 178 lots sold, 16 were subject to internet bids from buyers in Queensland, Northern NSW, Tasmania, South Australia & Victoria. The top priced horse to sell on-line was racemare Matilda Princess, purchased by Andrew Hayes in Grafton for $11,000. In total 8 lots were purchased by on-line bidders (including Malcolm Couslon in Victoria who scored 4 lots & John Kendall in Queensland who purchased 3 lots). Inglis managing director Mark Webster commented: "The degree of interest in & successful introduction of the on-line bidding service is something that we are very happy with. I'm passionate about using technology to assist our clients to sell & buy horses & I'm delighted that the first sale to use this new technology has gone so smoothly. On-line bidding will be available for all Inglis bloodstock sales in NSW & Victoria in the future."
