"It is so incredibly rare that so many good fillies and mares would come up for public auction in a given year anywhere in the world – let alone all in the one place on the one night – so it is really very exciting,'' Inglis Bloodstock chief executive Sebastian Hutch said.

"The Chairman's Sale has grown into a must-attend event in a very short space of time.

"I think it's fair to say it's recognised as the most enjoyable evening on the Australian sales calendar, it's a lot of fun, effectively a cocktail party with a horse sale added in which is a concept the marketplace has really warmed to.

"We've received wonderful support for this year's catalogue again. Every lot makes significant appeal in its own particular way.

"It's a boutique sale and we're thrilled with the variety and depth of quality on offer, it's a sale sure to attract engagement from every major breeding operation in the world."

Following the Chairman's Sale, the Australian Broodmare Sale will take place on Friday, May 10.
