Over 200 Pinhook Opportunities At Inglis Weanling Sale
In nine days' time pinhookers will have access to the first of a large contingent of weanlings at the major breeding stock sales that will be held over the coming months in Australia and New Zealand. Kicking off on Sunday, May 1, Inglis's Newmarket complex hosts Day-1 of the 2016 Australian Broodmare & Weanling Sale, a full day of 214 weanlings – 123 of them catalogued as Platinum quality, 44 of them Select, and the remaining 47 General. The Platinum distinction is applied to those weanlings that are accompanied by x-rays, an important attribute for some buyers. Following a year where 2015 pinhookers at this sale have realised strong profits at 2016 yearling sales, there is much confidence ahead of the 2016 dedicated weanling session."This year's catalogue is brimming with select sale pedigrees showcasing the progeny of proven sires such as Fastnet Rock, Sebring, Choisir and I Am Invincible, and joined by the first offerings by Zoustar, Dundeel, Sizzling, Eurozone, Declaration Of War, Shamus Award and many others," said Inglis National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D'Arcy. "Pinhookers who secure their speculations in May will have every chance to maximise on their investments leading into 2017."
