The Broodmare Session concluded on the third day of the 2015 Inglis Great Southern Sale grossing $2,290,900 on 196 Lots sold. Following the trend set by the Weanling Sessions, strong increases were recorded across key metrics.

“Overall, the broodmare section has achieved very satisfactory results. There was again good competition on the better quality mares but the sale also highlighted the widening gap between commercial and non-commercial mares,” said Inglis’ Victorian Director Peter Heagney.

The day’s top priced Lots came late in the day when two mares from the supplementary session reached $125,000.

The first was Lot 747: Lamiraqui which Eliza Park International secured from the draft of Rosemont Stud, which topped the Vendors’ Table (3 or more sold) by average ($29,600).

The daughter of Choisir is the dam of two winners including Group 1 performer Pressing, and is carrying a full sibling from an early September cover to Sebring.

“She is probably the best mare in the catalogue in terms of pedigree so $125,000 was reasonable value we thought,” said Eliza Park International’s Phil Marshall.

“She’s in foal to one of the hottest sires at the moment, carrying a full brother or sister to a stakes-winner so she’s got a lot of commercial appeal. If you get a nice foal out of her you can get to the best sales in the country.” Marshall said.

“We’re not sure yet who we’ll send her to. We’ll go home and work out mating plans, and we’ll give her every opportunity, that’s for sure,” Marshall added.
