The catalogue for the 2024 Classic Yearling Sale – the best value yearling sale in the Southern Hemisphere is now available online.
The Classic Sale has forged a significant reputation over the years on the back of star graduates like Extreme Choice, I Am Invincible, Choisir, She Will Reign, Yankee Rose, Vow And Declare, Classique Legend, In Her Time, Brazen Beau, Hellbent and Castelvecchio among many others.
It is the only sale at which you could have bought the winners of each of The Everest, Golden Slipper, Melbourne Cup and Blue Diamond in the past 10 years and is the sale that produced recent carnival stars such as dual G1 winner Pride of Jenni, Buenos Noches, Opal Ridge, Roots, Skybird, Mazu, Democracy Manifest, Veight, Arkansaw Kid etc.

Inglis Bloodstock CEO Sebastian Hutch said buyers would be spoiled for choice at Riverside in 2024.
“The support we have had from a broad cross section of the best breeders in Australasia for this sale has again been fantastic,” Hutch said.
“People love doing business at this sale and I think that is reflected in the quality of the catalogue.
“People recognise that the sale represents a true and fair market year after year, they love being in Sydney in summer and buyers enjoy looking for their next star racehorse at the best auction complex in the world.
“Year after year, there is tremendous and ever-improving quality at the sale and this is borne out in the racecourse results across Australia.
“The value on offer is just incredible, with the sale producing more Australian Stakes winners since 2018 that could have been bought for $100,000 or less than any other sale.
“Also consider the fact that star Classic graduates over the past 12 months Pride Of Jenni, Buenos Noches, Palaisipan, Opal Ridge and Beauty Eternal would between them have cost $350,000 to buy – none more than $100,000 individually – and have won over $10.4m in prizemoney.
“It’s not only in Australia where Classic graduates have excelled recently but Hong Kong especially as well.
“In 2023, the Classic Sale was responsible for each of the three winners that make up the prestigious Hong Kong 4YO Series with Voyage Bubble completing the Hong Kong Classic Mile/Hong Kong Derby double while in between, Super Sunny Sing took out the Hong Kong Classic Cup.’’
