Inglis Digital Bargain Heading for Brisbane

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday April 13

Cairns trainer Mark Dale bought an unraced three year-old filly from the 2019 Inglis Digital November (Late) Sale for $1,250 and what a great buy she’s turned out to be winning her fifth race from eight starts at Cairns on Tuesday.

Modernism won four races in a row at the end of last year before going for a well earned break and was having her second run back from a spell in a Benchmark 70 event over 1400m.

Sent out a hot favourite with Jake Bayliss on board, Modernism carried 58.5kg to score a dominant length win eased down on the line.


Bayliss said after the race he was confident the four year-old daughter of Master of Design would measure up to Brisbane racing with her trainer keen to give her a try down south.

Modernism was a blank canvas - $1,250 well spent!  Click to see her page.

Modernism slipped through the cracks twice before on Inglis Digital Sales before she was bought by Mark Dale, offered in 2018 when she made $3,250 as a yearling and then again in July 2019 when she made $500.

Modernism has already won over $50,000 in prizemoney and is the first winner for Warble, a More Than Ready (USA) winner, whose third dam is Group I winner Whisked, the dam of champion stayer Tie the Knot.

The family also features current star 3YO Cherry Tortoni.
