Inglis Broodmares Select Sessions: Final Average Up 4.2%
Overall at the conclusion of the 3 Select Sessions at the Inglis Easter Broodmare Sale, 308 lots sold (66.8% of the 461 offered) for $22,193,800 at an average $72,058 (up 4.2% on last year) & a median $30,000 (up 20% on last year). Inglis managing director Mark Webster commented: "There is no doubt it was a very selective market here at Newmarket over the past few days. Breeders have done a tremendous job meeting the market with yearlings this year on the back of peak production costs. It was evident however that this will go down as a year where they are looking to consolidate without having surplus revenue to reinvest on breeding stock."
