Inglis Unveils New $2 Million 2YO Race
A new $2 million race for 2YOs and $1 million race for 3YOs will highlight a bumper annual Inglis Race Day at Warwick Farm each February from 2019. The changes are a part of the new-look Inglis Race Series, which will now be worth $8 million. Inglis and the Australian Turf Club have combined to formulate an outstanding race day on the second Saturday of February each year, starting in 2018, to coincide with the opening night’s selling of the company’s first annual sale, the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale at Riverside Stables. The 2018 Inglis Race Day, on Saturday February 10, will feature the $250,000 Inglis Classic (2YOs, 1200m) and $250,000 Inglis Sprint (3YOs, 1100m) alongside the Group 2 Breeders Classic, Gr3 Eskimo Prince Stakes and several other quality races. The 2019 race day will see the introduction of the $2 million Inglis Millennium as well as the revamped $1 million Inglis Sprint for 3YOs. All yearlings purchased through an Inglis sale ring in 2018 will be eligible for the new races at the Warwick Farm meeting from 2019, should owners pay up for the race series upon purchase.
