ARROWFIELD STUD & STALLIONS LEAD INGLIS EASTER RESULTS 

Arrowfield Stud and its stallions played leading roles in the results of the 2018 Inglis Easter Sale which concluded at Riverside Stables on Wednesday evening. 

Arrowfield topped the 2018 Inglis Easter Sale Book 1 Vendor list by aggregate for the fourth consecutive year with 31 lots sold for $18,265,000 – that’s 15.7% of total sales from 9.3% of the yearlings sold.

The Stud also headed the table by average with $589,194 (69.5% above the session average of $347,634), becoming the first vendor to achieve the double for at least a decade. Across Books 1 and 2 of the Sale, 41 Arrowfield yearlings sold for a total of $19,855,000.

Arrowfield’s John Messara said,

“I’m proud of the horses we presented at the first Inglis Easter Sale at Riverside Stables and very proud of the entire Arrowfield team responsible for raising, preparing, marketing and putting them in the ring. Our results reflect the quality of that work, and buyers’ recognition of our graduate record.

“I’m also pleased to see many other vendors do well with yearlings by Arrowfield stallions. The overall sale results are impressive, but it has been hard work all round in a highly selective market.” 

After selling 5 seven-figure yearlings on Monday, Arrowfield closed out the auction with three $1 million-plus sales on Wednesday.

That included the $2.3 million sale-topper, the Fastnet Rock-The Broken Shore colt, a full brother to dual Group 1-winning filly Shoals. It was Shoals’ trainer Anthony Freedman who signed for the colt, with Arrowfield retaining 25% of him.

James Harron was the purchaser of both the Redoute’s Choice-Silla Regalis colt at $1.5 million and the Not A Single Doubt-Star Pupil colt, knocked down for $1.05 million.

The Sale’s top-priced filly, the $1.3 million daughter of Snitzel and Azmiyna, was sent to the ring by Arrowfield on Monday, and bought by Chris Waller and Guy Mulcaster.

In all, Arrowfield and its stallions supplied 13 of the Sale’s 22 million-dollar yearlings.

Australia’s reigning Champion Sire Snitzel was responsible for seven of those horses among his 41 Book 1 lots sold for an average of $528,902, more than six times his 2015 fee. Milburn Creek, Kitchwin Hills, Yarraman Park and Bhima Thoroughbreds sold his top-priced colts for $1.55 million, $1.5 million, $1.4 million and $1.2 million respectively.

Snitzel now has a lifetime record of 24 million-dollar yearlings, among them Group 1 winners Estijaab & Wandjina, and Group winners Showtime, Dracarys & Sooboog – all sold by Arrowfield. 

Three-time Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice continued to build his legend with his 16thconsignment of Inglis Easter yearlings. His 13 Book 1 lots averaged $425,385 – 23% above the Session average – and the Silla Regalis colt is the 76th million-dollar yearling of his glittering career.

Not A Single Doubt’s 2015 fee of $30,000 proved a shrewd investment for the vendors of the 16 Book 1 yearlings by him that averaged $289,375, with 11 of them making more than seven times fee. 

Arrowfield’s quality support of its next generation stallions was evident in the results compiled by Animal Kingdom, Dundeel and Olympic Glory. The Stud sold the majority of their Inglis Easter yearlings, including the top-priced lots by each stallion.

Olympic Glory filly from Lets Make Adeal sells to Boomer Bloodstock for $400,000

Six of Dundeel’s eight lots in Books 1 & 2 also averaged better than seven times his $25,000 fee and his top price of $500,000 was paid by Carmel Size for Arrowfield’s Joy Ride colt. Other Dundeel yearling buyers were David Payne, Henry Dwyer & Waterford Bloodstock, Anthony Cummings, Shaun Dwyer, Andrew Williams and Duncan Ramage. 

Three colts and three fillies by Olympic Glory averaged almost 10 times his $17,500 fee, with his top price of $400,000 paid by Craig Rounsefell’s Boomer Bloodstock and Lindsay Smith for Arrowfield’s filly out of Group 3 winner Let’s Make Adeal. Paul Perry, George Moore & Domeland also signed for Olympic Glory yearlings.

All seven of Animal Kingdom’s catalogued yearlings sold for an average price of $122,142, a four-fold return on his 2015 fee. His top price of $350,000 was paid by Blue Diamond-winning trainer Grahame Begg for the Arrowfield-offered colt out of Double Ranga, a half-brother to Group 2 winner Scarlet Rain.
