Inglis To Move To Riverside Stables After 2017 Sales Season
The 2017 sales season will be the last for Inglis at its iconic Newmarket complex, with confirmation the company’s new Warwick Farm base will be ready for use by early next year. Construction of the new $140 million precinct, adjacent to the Warwick Farm racecourse, is set to be completed in December. As a result, this year’s Australian Broodmare and Weanling Sale (April 10-12), which has been moved back to its former timeslot to follow on from the Australian Easter Yearling Sale, will be the final sale held at Newmarket. The first sale at the new complex will be the Classic Yearling Sale, in early February 2018. The feature of the Warwick Farm precinct, to be known as Riverside Stables, will be a new luxury Hotel, named The William Inglis. Each of the 144 hotel rooms – including a number of large suites and family rooms – will have their own name and theme, based on one of the many champion racehorses sold through an Inglis sale ring. “After years of planning, the time has come to relocate our Sydney business to its new home, a truly world class sales and events facility at Warwick Farm,'' Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster said. "The Riverside Stables complex is a massive investment by Inglis, and has been created to service the thoroughbred racing and breeding industry for the next 100 years." Webster, Jonathan D’Arcy and other senior managers from Inglis will be in contact with customers over the coming months to discuss in more detail the transition to Riverside Stables, including stabling, hospitality and to explain in more detail how the new complex will operate.
