Inglis Melb Premier Day-3: Record $111,000 Average
Session I of the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale concluded on a high today with a clearance rate of 87% and record average of $111,000, up 14% on last year's figure, driving a record aggregate of $51,393,000, an increase of 16%. Furthermore, 32 horses were sold for in excess of $250,000, a significant increase on the 18 in 2015, demonstrating the growing demand for top quality colts and fillies at Victoria's principal yearling sale. "The overwhelming results from Session I are representative of the confidence in the Victorian industry, and in the Premier Sale," said Inglis Victorian Manager Simon Vivian. "The jump in average of 14% proves that the results are there for breeders and vendors who support the sale with high-quality horses." Day-4 (Book-2) starts at 10.30 for Lots 574-755.
