Helped by a $10 million windfall for the most anticipated yearling of a generation, Inglis has created some history with the average price of an Easter Yearling exceeding $400,000 for the first time.

Fireworks were always expected in competition for Lot 391, the daughter of Pierro and Winx exceeded all expectations when a shootout between American investor John Stewart and Debbie Kepitis, who was already a part-owner of the filly, ended in the latter’s favour when the bidding stopped at $10 million.

It broke all records, doubling the previous best for a yearling in Australia and eclipsing the previous global mark for a yearling filly.

“In the case of a company that's been in operation since 1867, I won’t say it was the pinnacle of the achievements for the company, but it's got a rank amongst the most extraordinary things the company has ever achieved,” Sebastian Hutch, Inglis Bloodstock CEO said.
