An extraordinary fortnight – and 112 years of history – ended in style today when the gavel came down for the last ever time at Newmarket, capping off a remarkable select sales season for Inglis.
Jamie Inglis, company director and the eldest of the fifth-generation family still involved in the company, auctioned the final Lot in emotional scenes in the Newmarket sale ring. (Nervous Nellie - the last horse sold at Newmarket. Sold by Yarraman Park and bought by Bowness Stud for $26,000.)
It brought to an end a phenomenal period, which included:
*$254 million traded by Inglis since the start of the Classic Yearling Sale
*Among this, there have been 20 $1million Lots, of which only 24 have been sold in Australasia in 2017
*Inglis has sold $156 million worth of yearlings, weanlings, racing and breeding stock at Newmarket since Thursday 30 March
