Mullaglass Stud Present Quality Yearlings for Inglis Digital April Online

Sponsored Content - by Tara Madgwick - Thursday April 23

The challenging financial climate we all now face has brought many breeders to consider their options with Richard & Kim McClenahan of Mullaglass Stud electing to test the waters by offering six well bred yearlings at the Inglis Digital April Sale that goes live on Friday April 24 running until April 29.

The McClenahan’s usually consign their stock under Kitchwin Hills & Valiant Stud as agent , but for this sale they are offered by their own Mullaglass Stud and can be inspected at the farm on Nandowra Rd, Scone by appointment on 0429 837 029.

While the Mullaglass name may be new to the sales format, they are certainly not new in producing quality racehorses including Hellbent, who now stands at Yarraman Park Stud,  just down the road from where he was bred at Mullaglass. Add to that Hellbent’s progressive full brother Hulk, and the exciting Bjorn Baker trained Lady of Luxury, have all been bred on this progressive new farm in the Hunter Valley.

The draft is as follows:
