The Robbie Griffiths/Matthew De Kock Melbourne-based yard had three yearlings bought for them at the record-breaking Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale by combined purchasers Griffiths De Kock Racing, MDK International, Peter Ford Thoroughbreds (FBAA) and Vermaak Equine.

The Sale was staged on Tuesday and Wednesday this week in Sydney and words like “extraordinary” and “frenzied” were being bandied about by the end as records were smashed just three weeks ahead of South Africa’s BSA National Yearling Sale.
