Inglis MD Pleased with Live Auction Return
Sunday’s Inglis sales were the first live yearling auctions conducted in the southern hemisphere since the COVID-19 restrictions commenced and Inglis’ Managing Director Mark Webster was pleased with the day’s trade. “It’s been a tough few months for a lot of people in our industry and I’m just glad we’ve been able to provide a marketplace for a live sale to take place,’’ Webster said. “The clearance for the day is climbing all the time and will be over 75% by [Monday] morning which is very satisfying, selling a broad range of yearlings to a diverse domestic and international buying bench, including top end yearlings to Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong. We are very grateful for the patience of our vendors through this challenging period, while also recognising the tremendous support shown by our buyers today and over the past number of months.” To view all the statistics from today’s Easter Round 2 and Scone Yearling Sale, CLICK HERE.
