A Gallery of Easter Group 1 Winners

Arrowfield's latest Inglis Easter Group 1 graduate Stronger, winner of January's HKJC Centenary Sprint Cup G1. The son of Not A Single Doubt & Star Pupil was a $1.05 million purchase by James Harron from the 2018 draft that also produced Alabama Express & Super Seth.

Statistics are one thing.

Moments are something else.

Like The Autumn Sun opening the throttle in the Caulfield Guineas, or launching from near-last at the top of the straight to win the Randwick Guineas. 

Estijaab seizing the lead in the Golden Slipper and staying there until the job’s done.

Super Seth flying in from the realm of impossibility to land his Caulfield Guineas.

Stronger, living up to his name in a heart-stopping battle for the Centenary Sprint Cup. 

And Alabama Express, flatly ignoring the odds against his wide-no-cover run to win the C.F. Orr Stakes.

More than anything else, this is what owners, trainers, syndicators & agents dream of and look for at Inglis Easter, especially at Arrowfield which has been selling the horses that generate these moments for more than 30 years.

Arrowfield’s strike rate from recent sales is certainly impressive: eight of the 35 Inglis Easter Group 1-winning graduates since 2015 carry the Arrowfield brand. 

That’s 23% of the Sale’s Group 1 winners from a farm supplying less than 8 per cent of the Inglis Easter yearlings through the ring in that period. 

In case you’re wondering, it doesn’t include our 2020 Easter draft, withdrawn from the Sale and already the source of Group 1 winner Yearning, Group-winning 2YO Mallory, Listed winner Royalzel and Group performers Port Louis and Remarque. 

Same story if we consider the last decade of Inglis Easter Sales: Arrowfield is the vendor of 14 (23%) of the 60 Group 1 winners from the 2012-2021 Sales.

RAFEEF (Redoute's Choice-National Colour), $800,000, Inglis Easter 2014

MAJMU (Redoute's Choice-Spontaneous), $300,000, Inglis Easter 2013

ABBEY MARIE (Redoute's Choice-Catshaan), $300,000, Inglis Easter 2014

That wider sweep includes Rafeef, a Group 1 sprint winner for the late Sheikh Hamdan in South Africa, and last season’s Champion First Season Sire in that country.

Plus South Africa’s Champion 2YO Filly and dual Group 1 winner Majmu, and the spectacularly gifted Oaks winner Abbey Marie, whose Dundeel filly is in this year’s draft.

It’s a great place to start the hunt for those special racing moments. In Arrowfield’s Inglis Easter 2022 draft, Big Barn and Barn B, Stables 33 to 72 at Riverside Stables, Sydney, and selling on 5 & 6 April.
