Next Friday (13th) is the final entry date for this year's Inglis Australian Broodmare & Weanling Sale. The 2015 renewal of the sale will run for three days from May 3. The 2014 select weanling average was up 48 percent and the select broodmare average was up 28 percent, while the clearance rates for last year's weanlings and broodmares was 87 percent and 85 percent respectively. Inglis has also announced that entry will be free for all progeny of first season sires. The sale will feature the initial Australian offering of youngsters by the highly anticipated stallions Pierro, All Too Hard, Your Song, Animal Kingdom, Excelebration, Dalakhani, Delago Deluxe, Americain, Bullet Train, Harbour Watch, Mulaazem and Squamosa. Vendors can ensure entry into the Platinum weanling session on the opening day of the sale by providing x-rays to the repository. "The weanling market has become a very important part of the Australian industry and we feel by elevating a select group of weanlings by guaranteeing they are x-rayed will increase buyer confidence and in turn breeder's returns in the sale ring, which is why we are making it possible for buyers to select stock more carefully by holding the Platinum session on the first sale day," commented Inglis' National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D'Arcy.
