Inglis Adds Blue Riband Session To Melb Premier Sale
Inglis announced the addition of a Blue Riband Session for "yearlings bred to excel over middle & staying distances" to its 2013 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale (March 4-7) at Oaklands. To maintain a high standard, only 40-60 yearlings "assessed to have the right credentials will make up the new prestigious section" & Inglis Melbourne director Peter Heagney noted: "With Victoria being the home of prized distance races such as the Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup & Cox Plate, it makes sense to launch Blue Riband in Melbourne, one of several Inglis initiatives to be introduced by the company to provide greater support to breeders of quality middle distance & staying types."
