Premier had Caviar on the menu

TIME passes quickly in horse racing. Unbeaten Black Caviar (Bel Esprit) put the Inglis Premier sale on the map with her racetrack efforts, 25 wins, 15 at Gr.1 level and earnings of almost $8m, before her retirement in April 2013; but a sale can’t rest on one horse, and Inglis Premier keeps delivering. At the same sale as Black Caviar, a chestnut colt named Starspangledbanner (Choisir) also sold.

Buyers with all range of budgets should be able to find something nice to buy from our 11 lots

Evergreen Stud Farm

TONY BOTT’S boutique Evergreen Stud Farm at Heatherbrae has an excellent record of producing the type of racehorse buyers love. The BTC T.J. Smith-Gr.1 winner Sizzling (Snitzel- Admirelle by General Nediym), who has earnings of $1.3m, was sold off the farm and other graduates include Gr.1 placed, Listed winner Run for Naara (More Than Ready-Kristopher Street (USA) by Kris S), Gr.2 winner Happy Galaxy (Nadeem-Seven Stars by King’s Best (USA)) as well as several Listed winners in the past few years.

Fairview Park Stud

 WHEN a vendor sells a Golden Slipper winner, you’d expect to see lots of backslapping and general cheering about the achievement as breeding the winner of our major race for two year-olds is the ultimate goal for many breeders. Last year’s Golden Slipper-Gr.1 winner Mossfun (Mossman-Eye for Fun by Snitzel)), bred in conjunction by Fairview Park’s Linda Duckworth, her husband Dr Ian Duckworth and partners Heather McKinnon and Darren Pullman, sold at Easter in 2013 for $85,000 and yet Linda Duckworth remains down to earth about Mossfun and her victory. 

The Macquarie Stud

DAVID BAXTER’S Macquarie Stud has been in his family for about 50 years and has been selling at the Inglis Australian Easter Sale since 1975. This longevity in the breeding industry is admirable and when asked about it, Baxter said there were two main factors, the first was to keep working hard to strive for quality, but by far the most important factor was loyal staff. 

Newhaven Park

A Derby winner in South Africa, a Group One sprinter in Singapore, a Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner, a champion two-year-old in Western Australia and a string of top class winners in Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland and South Australia.

Think Big Stud

THE emergence of Think Big Stud was in many ways inevitable as owner Dato Tan Chin Nam’s core business is in real estate and the idea of owning land had been contemplated for a long time. Dato Tan had previously kept his mares at Kia-Ora Stud while hunting for the right property, and purchased Inverness Stud at Burradoo from Dr Jack Woolridge in late 2007.

Luigi Muollo

Novara Park has quickly made headlines in New Zealand with its globetrotting Gr.1 stallion Jakkalberry, who was the leading first season sire by combined average at the Premier-Select 2017 NZB yearling sale. His stock averaged $163,500 off only a $6000 service fee and Jakkalberry was also the leading sire overall by average at the Select NZB Yearling sale. Novara Park’s proprietor, Luigi Muollo, is a successful property investor in Wellington, and brings plenty of business acumen to the New Zealand racing and breeding industry.

Olly Tait

OLLY Tait has long been a name to be reckoned with in the Australian and the global racing industry. After 15 years with Darley, Olly Tait, along with his wife Amber, have purchased a 1012ha property at Cootamundra from Darley and reverted the famous farm’s name back to its original name, Twin Hills.
  Tait is the fourth generation of the Australian Racing Hall of Fame-inducted Tait family to be involved in racing. His grandparents Griff and Daisy Tait, owned the outstanding Star Kingdom broodmare Dark Jewel who produced five stakes winners, including Baguette; while Olly Tait’s parents, Sandy and Katherine, along with Sandy’s sister Jill Nivison, bred and raced Whisked, a Gr.1 winner who in turn became the dam of champion Tie the Knot. These achievements only touch the family fortunes in racing.
