Inglis Aug Thoroughbred Sale Finishes On Par
At the end of the two-day Inglis August Thoroughbred Sale at Oaklands in Melbourne on Friday, the gross of $2,926,300 was up slightly on the previous year's $2,914,200 (0.4 per cent) while both the average of $9,722 and median of $3,000 experienced slight falls from 2012 ($10,084 and $4,000 respectively). This was a pleasing result considering the higher number of lots catalogued this year (397 as opposed to 372 in 2012). The clearance rate was also up with a strong 92 per cent of horses sold (90 per cent in 2012).
