A quality catalogue for Round 2 of the Australian Easter Yearling Sale has been finalised, featuring yearlings by a diverse range of top-class domestic and international stallions, as well as progeny of the best first season stallions.
What is tracking to be the world’s first physical yearling sale in months due to COVID-19 restrictions, Easter Round 2 will be held as a live auction at Riverside Stables in Sydney on Sunday July 5.
The unique Easter Round 2 catalogue of 94 lots is a combination of yearlings originally catalogued for the Easter Yearling Sale, plus a handful of additional entries.
It contains some of the southern hemisphere’s best-bred yearlings by all the leading Australian stallions such as I Am Invincible, Snitzel, Pierro, Exceed And Excel, Fastnet Rock, Lonhro, Written Tycoon, So You Think, Dundeel, Sebring, Zoustar, Deep Field and Not A Single Doubt to name a few, as well as international superstars like Frankel and Medaglia d’Oro.
First Season Sires such as American Pharoah, Capitalist, Shalaa, Extreme Choice, Divine Prophet and Astern are also represented.

Inspections will be available at Riverside from Thursday July 2 ahead of the sale which begins at 10am Sunday July 5.
Strict biosecurity measures will be in place at Riverside on inspection days and sale day, with information surrounding that to be made available in coming weeks.
“As has been well documented, the lead-up to the traditional Easter Yearling Sale in April was against a back-drop of a hugely challenging environment as a result of the pandemic,’’ Inglis General Manager of Bloodstock and Marketing Sebastian Hutch said.
“It was agreed at the time that it would be appropriate to offer vendors and buyers a further opportunity to acquire Easter yearlings at a later date, so the concept of Easter Round 2 was born and we are very pleased with how the catalogue has come together.
“The recent G1 success of horses like Dreamforce, Nettoyer and Quick Thinker further demonstrates the value represented by Easter yearlings and we have every confidence that quality racehorses will emerge from this catalogue.”
Easter Round 2 will be immediately followed by the annual Scone Yearling Sale, which will for the first time be held at Riverside rather than White Park, due to COVID-19.
It is another strong catalogue of 156 yearlings, headlined by the Outreach half-brother to exciting undefeated 2YO The Bopper, winner of the 2020 Inglis Challenge having been purchased for just $30,000 at the 2019 Inglis Scone Yearling Sale.
The Scone Sale – which has provided the likes of Voodoo Lad, Cradle Mountain and Condo’s Express in recent years – features yearlings by the likes of More Than Ready, Nicconi, Teofilo, All Too Hard, Deep Field, Foxwedge, Smart Missile, Headwater, Pride Of Dubai, Shamus Award, Rubick, Choisir etc as well as First Season Sires such as Capitalist, American Pharoah, Star Turn, Flying Artie, Winning Rupert, Sooboog, Divine Prophet, Territories Air Force Blue, Odyssey Moon and others.
