Classic to proceed as live auction at Riverside

Preparations are ongoing for next month’s Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, which will proceed as a live auction at Riverside from February 7-9.

The sale will be conducted with Inglis’ Covid-Safe plan in place which allows for a range of hospitality options including Ringside Dining, Barn Pavilions, The 1867 Bar, The Newmarket Restaurant, the Inglis Day Spa and many others.

Inglis is continuing to work with respective State Government authorities and other bodies to further develop protocols that will allow for attendance at the sale by interstate participants while facilitating their safe and responsible return home.  

“The permit system now in place for travel to Victoria is a very positive development for those looking to participate in the sale,” Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster said.

“We are working with all the relevant authorities to ensure that as many people as practicable can attend the sale in a safe and responsible manner and we will continue to liaise with buyers through the coming weeks.

“It is an excellent catalogue of horses for what year-after-year proves itself to be the best-value yearling sale on the calendar and we are excited to get the 2021 Inglis Yearling Sales Series up and going with Classic on February 7-9.”

On-site inspections are set to begin at Riverside on Tuesday February 2.
