The best to come out of the Inglis Premier Sales

Feb 24, 2022

By Terry Kennedy

The Inglis Premier Yearling Sale has become one of the leading sales on the sales calendar, which is why TRL are thrilled to be heading there this year to hopefully purchase some future stars. 

The Premier Sale has been a constant source of star racehorses for buyers over a long period, from the likes of Sacred Kingdom, Starspangledbanner and Black Caviar, but it has been in more recent years that its reputation for quality graduates has developed even further.

It is the sale that has produced the World’s Best Sprinter in Nature Strip and one of his biggest rivals in Masked Crusader. Young stallions Ole Kirk and Written By have come out of this sale, along with Gytrash, Santa Ana Lane and the great Hey Doc. Since 2018, the  Premier Sale has produced 19 G1-winning graduates, and since 2019 graduates from the Premier Sale have won 20 of Australia’s Open $1m+ races, more than any other individual sale in the Southern Hemisphere. 

Nature Strip, the World’s Best Sprinter, has now earned over $16 million in prize money and has won an impressive 19 races from his 35 starts, including 7 Group 1s. The 7yo gelding continues to perform at his best, most recently winning the 2021 TAB Everest against a hot field. 

You just never know, the next Nature Strip could be waiting for us at this year’s Inglis Premier Sale.  Check out a highlight reel of some of his best wins below:

Or perhaps we will find the next Ole Kirk for owners in The Racing League! Check out his impressive win in the Group 1 Golden Rose below:

This year’s catalogue is truly remarkable and we look forward to bringing you all the action from the Inglis Premier Sales as we try to find you the next Nature Strip!
