More star power confirmed for Chairman’s Sale

“The Chairman’s Sale is such an amazing night, it was only two years ago one of our stable favourites Shout The Bar topped the sale and it was just such a memorable evening at Riverside so we’re very much looking forward to this year’s renewal,” stated co-trainer Adrian Bott.

Shout The Bar was offered by Brett Howard’s Glenesk Thoroughbreds, who will again have an outstanding draft at the 2024 sale, which will be held on the evening of Thursday, May 9.

Among the Glenesk offerings will be Stakes winner and five-times Stakes placed mare A Very Fine Red (Deep Field), G2 winner and G1 placed mare Steinem (Frankel), Stakes-winning 2YO De Sonic Boom (Spirit of Boom), Sky Rumba – the dam of G1 Oakleigh Plate winner Portland Sky – and dual Stakes-winning Toronado mare Solaia in foal to highly anticipated young stallion Anamoe.

“The Chairman’s Sale has been incredible for Glenesk. The past two years are what every consignor – be it a broodmare sale or yearling sale – dreams of, to set two record prices two years in a row with Shout The Bar ($2.7m) and Nimalee ($3.6m),’’ Glenesk’s Brett Howard said.

“It’s just extremely satisfying and a really good experience for everyone involved.

“Inglis has done a great job getting the sale to where it is today and its standing in the global marketplace and getting all the people there and creating a great atmosphere.

“We’re thrilled about how our draft for this year’s sale is shaping. Steinem, to have a mare by the best stallion in the world in Frankel who is a G2 winner and G1 placed, I mean what’s not to like?

“And a horse like A Very Fine Red, I was only looking the other day and in the past 2.5 seasons there’s only one stallion in Australia whose progeny have earned more money than Deep Field and that’s I Am Invincible, so having a daughter of Deep Field in the draft is fantastic.’’
