Catalogues are available for next year's Classic sale at https://inglis.com.au/sales/info/2019+Classic+Yearling+Sale

There appeared to be a seismic shift in the nature of this sale in 2018, which coincided with it being the first sale in the new Riverside complex. Average for Book 1 was $93K, up from $71K the prior year. As a result they have extended to 1,000 lots by adding a "Highway Session" on 14th February.

It's an important sale for me as it is the first time I've offered a yearling at a Major Sale - a bit of a bucket list moment. I am very much hoping the Highway Session holds up and is like the old Summer Sale where trainers bought more on type than page. It's going to be a nervous few months.

You have a good vendor and are in the first half of your session so if your colt has the right type he should attract a fair price.

Of the 200 extra lots, between the big vendors of the last few years, they have an extra 250 odd lots between.  So whilst it is a bigger sale, it would appear that it was for the benefit of those boys.  Bit of a drought reduction it would appear.

Good luck! He has a nice geldings page, except for his dam, the rest of the family is a runners page.  Make sure the vendor puts a photo up at least 2 - 3 weeks before the sale, I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to not see photos up online!!
Most of all, have a realistic reserve! I believe in the theory that if I can make a profit, even if its only a tiny one, a profit is a profit, and therefore the sale is a success.

Thanks Rem, Einstein,

Rem - I was really happy with the draw. Subject to withdrawals he should be the 61st lot through, which will allow enough time to allow the market to settle and not too much time for orders to be filled.

Einstein, there will be a bombardment of photos and spam on social media! Hopefully a video as well. He does have a nice page, and there are legitimate excuses for his dam which hopefully I get the chance to explain. And agree on the low reserve - he is so hard to price in any event then you have to let the market tell you what he is worth and not pre-empt.

Don't be afraid to approach a senior Inglis sales agent like D'Arcy and see where they have him priced.  Between them and your vendor you should get a solid idea.  I tend to set my reserve and if it is a horse I really want to move I tell my vendor to 'go live' if the bidding stalls a bit short and once the buying bench know he is on the market you tend to get a few extra bids.  Good luck with him.  I will make sure to check him out.

Photos of my Inglis Classic Roman Emperor colt taken on Monday. Still six weeks out from sale day. I'm really happy how he is coming along.

Hes a nice sort Robbo!!! Just try and get him to stand a bit better for photos and squat down a bit when taking them so your shorter than the horse otherwise you make him look smaller than he is.

there is a racehorse in that photo. Not early but a trainer's horse for sure. I like him & my eye is generally accurate
 
Condition is excellent for this stage
 
Let him put on a few extra Kgs a fortnite  b4 sale as he will tighten up at the complex
 
Definitely get some help with those photos

Reckon this sale has more depth than Melbourne Premier, and will exceed that sale's average prices.

Just hope there's enough cash left when Robbo's fellow enters the ring.

Here is the Roman Emperor colt as portrayed on the Inglis website. Apparently it's been quite a challenging preparation period all round due to the extreme heat, but otherwise he is handling everything well.

Just having a browse of the catalogue and noticed Lot 31.

His dam was a lovely type and the 3 x 2 Lion Hunter is very interesting.  Certainly looks like a November foal however they soon grow up.

Hard Going
Ignoring the Gold section this looks like a very tough sale.   70% clearance Ave & Med hovering around $50K.   Lots of poor types
Syndicators still buy the page as they don't bother selling conformation

To be fair to the market it is apparent Inglis put too many gelatihouse types in this sale.
Do yourself a favour and scan the presale pics. There are a lot of "barry crockers"

Glencoe you're not alone in suggesting there's some very ordinary types in the sale.

Thought Lot 64 (Sebring - Arcadia Rose) appeared good buying at $120k.

 I do not rate myself as a judge of type --so what do you think of Lot 259. Bought by Bjorn Baker for $40K.
Quite a good pedigree, so seems quite cheap.

I pulled out around 60 yearlings and there was only 1 that I would even consider buying.  A lot of poor types and bad looking joints.  Guessing the supplementary feeding due to the drought has had its impact. A lot of worried vendors going into the next few days.

Having not been asked I'll defer to Glencoe regarding type.  However there are three warning signs imo:

1st:  the mares first foal, a 3yo, is yet to be named, and that worries me considerably;
2nd: the mares second foal, a 2yo, is yet to be named.  That worries me, if somewhat less than above; and
3rd: the yearling in question was purchased for $30k as a weanling by Arrowfield either for itself or a client, yet they were prepared to sell her for what represents a significant loss as a yearling.

None of which fills me with optimism.
