The last two Inglis Classic Yearling Sales have been highly successful for Fairview Park Stud, with their top lot last year being a Press Statement colt who sold for $270,000 and has since been named Spokesman, while their 2018 draft has already clocked up eight three year-old winners including the promising Hinchpin (Hinchinbrook), who was Gr.3 placed as a two year-old and has been sighted in group company already this season. Throw in Fairview Park Stud’s Inglis graduate Aramco, who won the 2019 Singapore Lion City Cup, and his half-sister, Golden Slipper winner Mossfun, as well as promising group placed winner Rocket Fuel, and buyers know this farm produces quality racehorses.

They are a lovely range of yearlings with many exciting stallions like American Pharoah, Capitalist, Maurice as well as proven sires Deep Field, Star Witness and All Too Hard.”
