Inglis Villiers Day Noms Close Monday
Nominations close on Monday for the two Inglis Race Series events to be run at Randwick on Saturday week, December 19. The meeting is highlighted by the Gr2 Inglis Villiers Stakes, and will feature the inaugural running of the $250,000 2YO Inglis Nursery and $100,000 3YO Inglis Bonus. The 2009 Inglis Nursery is restricted to graduates of Inglis' 2009 Yearling Sales who are entered for the $2.6 million Inglis Race Series. Inglis commercial development manager Matt Rudolph said, “The Inglis Juvenile has proven an outstanding success with the inaugural winner Starspangledbanner training on to take this year’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas. There’s every reason to think the Inglis Nursery can produce a similarly classy winner, as the race is programmed at a time when a lot of trainers like to test their better 2YOs before setting them aside and aiming at autumn riches.” There is also a $100,000 Inglis Race Series Bonus attached to the Benchmark 80 Handicap for 3YOs over 1400m on the program, with this event being the last of 15 races for 2008 Inglis Yearling Sale graduates to take home an Inglis Race Series bonus in New South Wales and Victoria since November last year.
