Potential buyers will be looking to secure one of the 400 plus Super-VOBIS nominated lots on offer at the upcoming Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, with owners able to benefit from up to $13 million worth of Super VOBIS bonuses on offer across over 840 races each year.
The sale, which is held in Melbourne over four days from Sunday, 3 March 2019, attracted more than 2000 sales in 2018 as the demand for top-quality yearlings continues to increase.
Among the VOBIS eligible lots expected to be in demand at the sale include:
- Lot 169, a bay colt by Golden Slipper Winner Vancouver out of Hobart and Launceston Cup winning mare Epingle (NZ).
- The only yearling on offer in the sale by Arc de Triomphe winner Golden Horn (GB), Lot 370, is sure to attract considerable attention from buyers. The bay/brown colt is also from the family of Melbourne Cup winner and champion stayer Fiorente.
- A bay colt by leading stallion I am Invincible out of an unraced half-sister to Index Linked and the dam of SA Derby winner Leicester is another exciting prospect to look out for amongst the contingent of Super-VOBIS nominated yearlings as Lot 230.
- Another top pick to consider is Lot 240, a Not a Single Doubt colt out of a half-sister to former Australian three-year-old filly of the year Gold Edition.
Of those 430 Super-VOBIS lots currently nominated at the time this edition went to print, 225 are also eligible for the VOBIS Sire scheme which provides those that do invest in their progeny the opportunity for lucrative returns, including the chance to race in the $1 million ‘The Showdown’.
Among the stallions whose progeny are eligible for VOBIS Sires scheme at this sale include Brazen Beau, Written Tycoon, Reward for Effort and Toronado.
