There’s a palpable sense of excitement at Oaklands in the countdown to the Melbourne Premier Sale on Sunday.
Vendors haven’t stopped since Tuesday morning and a positive vibe surrounds the sale grounds. Last year’s Premier I turnover ($44.97 million) and average ($95,886) look sure to be overshadowed.
Members of the Federation of Bloodstock Agents Australia (FBAA) spent $2.90 million on 30 lots at the 2015 Melbourne Premier and vice-president Sheamus Mills gives credit to Inglis for the quality of stock on offer this year.
“It’s the best catalogue on type I’ve seen in Melbourne,” Mills declared during inspections on Thursday. “Inglis has been stringent and I think the results will reflect the increased numbers of good types.”
Mills also said it has never been a more appropriate time for buyers to utilize a registered bloodstock agent in light of recent events that have made headlines for all the wrong reasons. “The FBAA contract clearly spells out all financials and we have a Code of Conduct to ensure our members can be trusted.”
Federation of Bloodstock Agents Australia (FBAA) was formed in 1998 to maintain, improve and develop the standards, status and services of bloodstock agents throughout Australia.
Its members operate with the utmost integrity and professionalism. The list of FBAA members can be found here.
