Chairman's Sale Heads New Easter Schedule
The introduction of an exciting new concept in thoroughbred sales either side of the Australian Easter Yearling Sale is set to create the the biggest fortnight of combined elite horse racing and horse auctions in Australasian history. To celebrate the looming release of the 2017 Easter catalogue, Inglis has unveiled The Chairman’s Sale, an opportunity for leading horse owners, trainers and breeders to offer their high class thoroughbreds to arguably the strongest buying bench ever assembled in Australia. Positioned either side of the time-honoured Easter Yearling Sale and The Championships, The Chairman’s Sale will be held over two sessions, a week apart, in the middle of what is already a thriving Sydney autumn carnival. The inaugural Chairman’s Sale Session I - Elite Racing Prospects - will be held at the Inglis Newmarket complex on Thursday night, March 30, just prior to Day 1 of The Championships. Its primary offering will be the opportunity to purchase all or a percentage of selected runners entered in The Championships to be conducted over the following two Saturdays at Royal Randwick. Owners will have the chance to sell down their ownership in some of Australia’s leading racehorses to highly motivated investors looking to experience the thrill of having a runner over Sydney’s richest fortnight of racing. The Racing Agency will be assisting Inglis in recruiting horses for the sale. The Chairman’s Sale Session II - Elite Breeding Prospects - will be held on Friday night, April 7, the day after the conclusion of the Australian Easter Yearling Sale. Its primary offering will be top class breeding prospects on or off the track, broodmares in foal to Australasia’s finest sires, as well as stallion shares or breeding rights in the country’s leading stallions and select, highly-credentialed weanlings. The Australian Easter Yearling Sale will remain in its original place for three days starting Tuesday April 4, before a revamped Australian Weanling and Broodmare Sale, which will run for three days from Monday April 10.
