The Bhima Thoroughbreds draft will include a reduction by Raffles Racing, with the likes of stakes performers or producers Spectacular Vision (Mastercraftsman), El Sagrado (Azamour), McIvor Silk (Fastnet Rock) and Ready To Lift (More Than Ready) among some beautifully bred mares.
The Segenhoe Stud draft comprises 21 mares in foal to a diverse range of quality stallions and featuring some of the best colonial and international bloodlines.

There will be no mares present at the Inglis Riverside complex in advance of, or during the sale, with prospective purchasers encouraged to contact vendors to discuss the arrangement of any on-farm inspections, with all participants encouraged to respect social distancing measures currently in place.
“It is the best catalogue of mares for the Australian Broodmare Sale for many years and a sale that any discerning commercial breeder in Australasia needs to be paying very close attention to,” Inglis NSW bloodstock manager Chris Russell said.
“Year after year people find quality mares for value prices at this sale with no better examples than the dams of Oohood and Funstar/Youngstar who were sourced from the sale for $110,000 and $30,000 respectively.
“Our user-friendly digital platform is very familiar to the majority of participants and with many vendors providing quality videos of stock as well as comprehensive reports. It is a very easy, convenient way to buy quality mares.’’
