What is the best horse you’ve ever bought at an Inglis Sale?

Adam White - Vinery: I guess from a Vinery point of view it would be hard to split 3 horses. Exceedance and Headwater who of course ended up in our Stallion barn. Samaready, we had a lot of fun with also.

Kerrie Cox - Elsdon Park: A Pins filly we named Roop All from Melbourne Premier. She was exceptional but we lost her in a paddock accident after only her third start.

David White - Vinery: Exceedance was purchased by Vinery at Inglis in Easter 2018 for $180,000. He won a Group 3 and then a Group 1. He now stands at Vinery for a fee of $33,000.

Melissa Copelin- Torryburn Stud: Miss Interiors! (Dam of Home Affairs)

Cherry Taylor - Trelawny: The best horse we have bought at Inglis would be a mare called Carmel Valley we bought her at the Inglis Mare Sale and she produced a Group 1 winner for us being, Hill Of Grace.

We bought two yearlings from Segenhoe in the same year, Juan Diva a stakes winner and Vamos Bebe who won a stakes race but was better than she was able to show as she bled and we had to retire her. Watch for her progeny!

Alison Hush - Davali Thoroughbreds: My best Inglis buy would be Loved Up. We actually prepared her for the Easter Yearling Sale but couldn’t get her away in the ring for her breeders.

We got a group of people together and purchased her for $30,000. She went on to win over $500,000 and then sold for $300,000 as a broodmare.
