Showcasing colt tops Day 1 of Goffs February Sale at €120,000


A trio of six figure purchases were the highlight of Day 1 of the Goffs February Sale, a session dedicated to weanlings. Trickledown Stud provided the sales topper with their son of Showcasing, the first foal out of the Listed winner and Group placed mare Porthilly (Lot 248 – pictured above), that sold to Stauffenberg Bloodstock for €120,000.

Tara Stud provided another of the stand outs of the day’s trade as their Lope De Vega filly (Lot 206 - pictured above) was knocked down to Cathy Grassick of Brian Grassick Bloodstock at €100,000.  Out of a Stakes performer, the filly is a half-sister to the winner and Group placed Dream Mover as well as Listed winner Taper Tantrum. 

The first to reach the €100,000 mark was Ballintry Stud’s Sea The Stars colt out of the Champion Italian 2yo Fly On The Night (Lot 104A - above) who was bought by Avaz Ismoilov, one of his seven purchases.

The February Sale continues today at 10am with a quality selection of two year olds, older horses and breeding stock.
