Many thanks to everyone who supported us at the Goffs Orby Sale this week. We were delighted to end the sale as a top five vendor.
Kodiac's popularity was a driving force, with two fillies out of our draft making €230,000 and €225,000 respectively; Jason Kelly and Bryan Smart secured our 3/4 sister to Perfect Power while Amanda Skiffington landed our filly out of Inverse.
Many congratulations to Alice Fitzgerald on the sale of her stunning Kodiac filly out of Fikrah for €340,000 to Peter and Ross Doyle (pictured).
After outbidding Daithi Harvey, standing with Princess Yaiza’s owner Lindsay Laroche, Doyle confirmed that the filly would join Richard Hannon with an eye on next year’s Goffs Million Sales race.
“Richard has obviously had a lot of luck with Kodiac, with the likes of Tiggy Wiggy and Fox Champion,” he told the Owner Breeder. “She’s a half-sister to a quick horse, Hey Jonesy, who was also a good two-year-old and she is a beautiful filly from a very good nursery – we bought [Weatherbys Super Sprint winner] Ginger Nut off Alice. Hopefully this filly is one for the Million.”
Kodiac ended the sale with an average of €128,154 for 13 sold.
Mehmas had just one yearling on offer, a brother to Gubbass, and he was popular, selling for €225,000 to Peter and Ross Doyle.
Cotai Glory's duo of yearlings consisted of a half-brother to Acklam Express who made €170,000 to Highflyer Bloodstock from Ballymorris Stud and a filly out of Moment Of Truth who sold to Montgomery Motto for €52,000.
Galileo Gold also had a good sale, returning an average of €61,000 for two sold.
We were also encouraged by the ongoing reaction to the first crop of Kessaar - his draft this time around included a colt out of Bisous Y Besos who sold for €100,000 to Highclere Agency. He is pictured below.
