The Inglis Digital Online Auctions will move to a bimonthly schedule effective immediately following successive record sales. On Thursday, the company’s July auction achieved a record gross for an online thoroughbred auction, with $2,246,300 traded. The figure bettered the previous record of $1,751,650 set at the June auction. Stakes winning filly Kinky Boom (Spirit of Boom) and O’Reilly (Last Tycoon) mare Guelder, who was sold in foal to Zoustar (Northern Meteor), were equal sale toppers, selling for $150,000 each. Inglis Digital business manager Nick Melmeth said the depth of the catalogues and a strong buying bench at recent online sales led to the company deciding to now hold the auctions twice a month. “The growth we have seen in the past 12 months especially has been astronomical and we look forward to supplying the market with even more quality. To gross in excess of $2 million for the first time is fantastic for our vendors,” Melmeth said. Entries for the first August Online Auction close at midnight on Wednesday, with the catalogue available at inglisdigital.com by 1pm on Friday
