Inglis 2YO Ready for First Trials
Inglis graduates will be represented in ten of the twelve season-opening 2YO barrier trials at Canterbury today. Among them are several well-bred youngsters including Inglis Classic graduate Mia Stella Rose (Written Tycoon x Fantastic Glen), a filly which sold for $350,000 at this year's inaugural Gold Riband session on the opening night of the Classic Sale, as well as a pair of Easter colts - Mandalong Ready (More Than Ready x Wasimah), a $340,000 buy for Mandalong Park from the Corumbene Stud draft, and Landon (I Am Invincible x Prairie Star) which Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott bought from Willow Park Stud for $320,000. A total of 88 two-year-olds – 56 colts and geldings and 32 fillies - are entered for the trials, which will be run on the Canterbury course proper. Inglis National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D'Arcy was excited about seeing the juveniles on the track for the first time. "The merry-go-round starts again, the dreams of hundreds of owners are about to be brought to life,'' D'Arcy said. Today's trials come 16 days before the Inglis ReadyRace Sale, where 158 two-year-olds are catalogued for auction at Oaklands Junction, Melbourne on Wednesday, 4 October.
