Inglis’ Victorian Bloodstock Manager Simon Vivian was thrilled with the depth of the catalogue.
“The breeders and vendors have shown outstanding support by backing the Premier Yearling Sale yet again and for that we are, as always, extremely grateful,’’ Vivian said.
“This sale has produced some outstanding horses in recent times and I have no doubt there are many more like them among the 2019 catalogue.
“The Oaklands renovation is coming along nicely and everybody will see the stunning new-look development at Premier next year.’’
