nglis is very strict on type and pedigree of
the yearlings selected for the prestigious
Australian Easter Yearling Sale, but buyers
are welcome from every walk of life.
“You don’t have to fly up the pointy end of the
plane to get involved in a first class racehorse
from Easter. There are Gr1 winners for all
budgets,” says Inglis bloodstock director
Gr1 winners such as Fat Al, Racing To Win,
Faint Perfume, Alverta and Response were all
able to be bought for $50,000 or less at Easter.
“Million dollar stars like All Too Hard and
Samantha Miss make plenty of headlines, but
a $150,000 purchase like Samaready will get
your heart racing and trophy cabinet bulging
just as fast,” adds D’Arcy.
Session II of the Inglis Easter Sale is a concept
that has quickly grabbed the imagination of local
buyers. This season’s W.S. Cox Plate prodigy
Shamus Award was picked out of Session II for
owner Sean Buckley of Ultra Racing.
Easter colts can certainly change lives too. Just
ask the connections of past sale graduates
Exceed And Excel, Fastnet Rock, Flying Spur,
Foxwedge and All Too Hard.
The residual value of fillies from Easter is also
second to none. Absolutely, Better Life, Mosheen,
Dariana, Irish Lights, Response, Headway and
Faint Perfume are some of the more recent Gr1-
winning Easter fillies to make their way from the
racetrack into the breeding barn.
Darley’s star three-year-old filly Guelph and
Teeley Asset’s leading sprinter Lankan Rupee
are two prime examples of the long-term value
of investing in Easter fillies. The Gr1 duo are
from mares Camarilla and Estelle Collection
respectively, who were bought from Easter,
raced to stakes success and then bred with.
550 star fillies and colts have been catalogued
for the 2014 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling
Sale, with the three day sale being conducted
on 8, 9 & 10 April in Sydney.
Many of the world’s greatest thoroughbred
families are represented in the catalogue. There
are 167 stakes-winning mares with progeny in
the sale - 35 of those won at Gr1 level, just like
Camarilla’s dam Camarena.
Gr1-winning dams in the 2014 Easter
Sale include Faint Perfume, Gold Edition,
Makybe Diva, Rostova, River Dove, Typhoon
Tracy, Absolut Glam, Alverta, Boundless and
There are an additional 74 lots from stakes
placed dams. Estelle Collection was the second
foal of stakes-placed mare Ana Zeel when
purchased by Teeley Assets at Easter.
There are 139 siblings to stakes-winners
catalogued this year, including 34
Gr1 winners such as So You Think,
Starspangledbanner, Overreach, Igugu,
Sepoy, Jimmy Choux, Zoustar and recent
Lightning Stakes victor Snizterland.
All the leading sires and a vast array of exciting
young stallions are represented in the quality
packed 2014 Easter catalogue.
Over 30 percent of the catalogue is by the
stallions that filled the top five positions on
Australia’s Sires Premiership at the end of the
last completed season. They are Exceed And
Excel (26 lots), Fastnet Rock (55), Commands
(10), Lonhro (25) and Redoute’s Choice (36).
Other stallions heavily represented at Easter
include More Than Ready (41), High
Chaparral (33), Northern Meteor (27),
Sebring (21), Snitzel (17), Street Cry (17),
Star Witness (16), Stratum (15), Not A Single
Doubt (14), Bernardini (12), Denman (11),
Encosta de Lago (11), and Flying Spur (9).
First season sires with exceptional types
selected for the sale include Congrats,
Hinchinbrook, Makfi, Rip Van Winkle,
Shocking, Showcasing, Starspangledbanner
and Star Witness.
Type is certainly ultra-important when it
comes to Inglis’ bloodstock team selecting
yearlings by first season sires into a
competitive catalogue such as Easter.
“It can be tough for the progeny of first season
sires at Easter to come up against the proven
champion sires that fill the bulk of the quality
catalogue. Our aim is to showcase the best
athletes at Easter. The rewards for buyers
willing to back their judgement of identifying
the next champion sires can be immense, just
as it was for the first crop of Danehill, More
Than Ready and even Redoute’s Choice which
sold quite conservatively,” D’Arcy pointed out
in the Easter Preview magazine.
All Too Hard, Wanted and Faint Perfume
were all purchased from the first crop of
the respective sires Casino Prince, Fastnet
Rock and Shamardal at the Australian Easter
Yearling Sale. Thus it pays to respect the
progeny of first season sires good enough to
get a type into the Easter catalogue. More can
be read about this year’s freshman yearling
sires represented by progeny at Easter 2014 in
the pages which follow.
For $200,000 or less any of the following
stakes-winning horses could have been
purchased at Easter: Absolutely, Amah Rock,
Amber Sky, Anacheeva, Anevay, Armed For
Action, Atlante, Better Life, Better Than Ready,
Cathay Lady, Choice Words, Collar, Darci Be
Good, Epingle, Fat Al, Golden Archer, Hussy
By Choice, Karacatis, Mossfun, Monton, Ninth
Legion, Nobby Snip, No Evidence Needed,
Pampelonne, Psychologist, Raceway, Rose Of
Peace, Sabrage, Samaready, Sharnee Rose, Soft
Sand, Specter, Sterling City, Strike The Stars,
Tanby and We’re Gonna Rock.
