Vivian described the Premier catalogue as “simply outstanding’’. “The support we have received from the Victorian industry especially who have 100% backed this sale again by giving their best yearlings to offer is not only quite overwhelming but also comes with a serious sense of responsibility to get the job done for them and we absolutely believe we will achieve great results again,’’ Vivian said. “Buyers want to buy from auctions with proven results and Premier’s recent record of graduates is simply quite extraordinary. “There have been 15 G1-winning graduates of the Premier Sale since 2018 – nine of which could have been purchased for $100,000 or less - including the likes of Nature Strip, Santa Ana Lane, Beat The Clock, Kenedna, Written By, Seabrook etc and since 2019 Premier has produced more winners of the $1m-plus races in Australia than any other sale. “The 2021 catalogue is again filled with the right yearlings prepared by the right people and we can’t wait to offer them at our exceptional and highly popular Oaklands facility in February and March next year.’’ To request a catalogue, email email@example.com or call Inglis on +61 3 9333 1422.
