Hutch Comments on Easter Round 2 Catalogue
“As has been well documented, the lead-up to the traditional Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in April was against a back-drop of a hugely challenging environment as a result of the pandemic,’’ Inglis General Manager of Bloodstock and Marketing Sebastian Hutch said. “It was agreed at the time that it would be appropriate to offer vendors and buyers a further opportunity to acquire Easter yearlings at a later date, so the concept of Easter Round 2 was born and we are very pleased with how the catalogue has come together. “ Hutch noted, “The recent G1 success of horses like Dreamforce, Nettoyer and Quick Thinker further demonstrates the value represented by Easter yearlings and we have every confidence that quality racehorses will emerge from this catalogue.” Easter Round 2 will be immediately followed by the annual Scone Yearling Sale, which will for the first time be held at Riverside rather than White Park, due to COVID-19. It is another strong catalogue of 156 yearlings by leading stallions, headlined by the Outreach half-brother to exciting undefeated 2YO The Bopper, winner of the 2020 Inglis Challenge having been purchased for just $30,000 at the 2019 Inglis Scone Yearling Sale.
