“While we have over 4000 registered users built up from our highly-successful twice-monthly Inglis Digital Online Auctions, there will obviously be new clients using the online portal for the first time for what is our first ever Easter Yearling Sale Online,’’ Inglis Managing Director Mark Webster said.
 
“This test auction on Friday will give them and everybody a chance to trial the software, get a feel for how the online auction platform works and make themselves comfortable so when the Easter Sale goes live at 10am Sunday morning, everybody will know how the process works and how simple it is.’’
