We were delighted to add the Starman half--sister to Group 1 winner Emily Upjohn for 125,000gns at the Tattersalls December Foal Sale.
A filly full of quality, she was bred by Piercetown Stud out of the Listed-placed Hidden Brief and further consolidates the bright start made at auction by the first progeny of Starman.
The first foals by champion sprinter Starman really caught the imagination at the Goffs November Sale, where they sold for up to €120,000 and €115,000.
Jimmy Murphy of Redpender Stud bought the €120,000 colt, who was bred by Empire Bloostock Ltd out of Lealas Daughter, while we purchased Sandra Russell's colt out of Moment Of Truth for €115,000.
Overall, Starman's progeny have so far caught the attention of a wide range of judges, selling to the likes of Camas Park Stud, Glenvale Stud, Siskin Lodge, Bobby O'Ryan and Rochestown Lodge Stud. David Ward, in whose colours Starman captured the Group 1 July Cup and Group 2 Duke Of York Stakes, has also supported him strongly.
Starman stands for €10,000 in 2024.
