Inglis Scone Yearling Sale This Sunday
Meanwhile, the 2016 Inglis HTBA Scone Yearling Sale catalogue features 206 Lots, highlighted by the siblings to two Blue Diamond Stakes winners. The half-sister to this year's winner Extreme Choice will be offered as Lot 83 from Bell River Thoroughbreds, while the half-brother to 2008 winner Reaan will be offered from the Arrowfield Stud draft as Lot 171. Siblings to starters in the Inglis 2YO Challenge Our Girl Charlie and Hand it In will also be offered as Lot 22 and Lot 68 respectively. Many leading stallions Exceed And Excel, Sebring, High Chaparral, I Am Invincible, Hinchinbrook, Medaglia d'Oro and Nicconi, are represented by yearlings offered by some of the most prolific thoroughbred nurseries. Scone has been the happy hunting ground for many trainers, owners and syndicators in the past. Darby Racing's stakes winners Look To The Stars and Time For War were both purchased from the sale, as was the Matt Dale trained Rom Baro before being sold to Hong Kong after his Canberra Guineas victory. The complete 2016 catalogue is available online at inglis.com.au and on the Inglis Sales iPad App. Hard-copy catalogues are available at Scone Race Club over the carnival and at White Park on Sunday. The sale will be the final chance to secure a yearling in 2016 that is eligible for entry to the lucrative $5 million Inglis Race Series, for which nominations close on 31 July.
