New Feature Races Added For $5 Million Inglis Series
The popular Inglis Race Series, which comprises $5 million in bonuses and select sale races, has been enhanced for the sales company's 2014's Yearling Sale graduates (covering their 2,3 & 4YO seasons) to include additional valuable 3YO races. "Since its inception five years ago the Inglis Race Series has gone from strength to strength, as evidenced this year through the subsequent Gr1 deeds of Inglis Race Series event winners Mossfun, Peggy Jean and Cosmic Endeavour," commented Inglis managing director Mark Webster. The series keeps its traditional kick off date with the $250,000 RL Inglis Banner (2YOs 1000m) on Cox Plate Day, this year on 25 October 2014. Immediate enhancements to the Inglis Race Series for graduates of 2014 Inglis Yearling Sales include $250,000 3YO Sprints in both Melbourne and Sydney:
- A $250,000 Inglis 3YO Sprint, to be run on the same day as the $500,000 Inglis Nursery in December 2015, will be Australia's richest 1100m race for 3YOs and fills the void where there are no 3YO black type sprints in New South Wales between mid-October and mid-February.
- The $250,000 Inglis 3YO Dash will be run in Melbourne during the Autumn of 2016 at a major metropolitan track.
- The 3YO Inglis Guineas, won this year by Cosmic Endeavour who then headed north to take out the Gr1 Tatt's Tiara, will remain at $400,000.
