The 2020 renewal of the Inglis Ready2Race Sale is certain to be the strongest yet – in terms of quality of both horses and vendors.

The success last season of recent graduates including G1 Doncaster Mile winner Nettoyer and high-class Hong Kong sprinter Wishful Thinker served to further enhance the merit of the progressive Inglis Ready2Race Sale and has prompted a series of entries of unprecedented class and depth.

“We are on track to offer a catalogue of incredible strength for the sale, particularly in terms of the stallion power” said Inglis GM of Bloodstock Sales & Marketing, Sebastian Hutch.
