Inglis August Catalogue Closing Today
Catalogue entries for the annual Inglis August Thoroughbred Sale (held in Melbourne) close at the end of business today. Last year's successful sale (which included Danevade at $1,050,000 & Cancanelle at $260,000) have added strength to this year's August Sale already having more than 350 nominations. As a result, the sale will now begin a day earlier on Thursday August 13 and run through Friday August 14. Tried stock is an industry category where demand is currently high, as was highlighted by last Friday's Sydney Winter Thoroughbred Sale which produced a clearance rate of 92 percent. With 12% of the Sydney purchases bought online, online bidding will again be offered at the Melbourne August Thoroughbred Sale.
