Strong start to Goffs November Foal Sale


Goffs November Sale opened with a flourish as the first day of the foal sale returned significant increases in aggregate (+ 38%), average (+15%) and median (+13%) over the equivalent session last year (Day 3 in 2016).

Leading the way was Highpark’s son of No Nay Never out of Dacio (Lot 238 - pictured) that sold to Powerstown Stud for €85,000.  Ballyphilip Stud purchased the next highest priced foal of the day when going to €80,000 for a colt by Tamayuz from the family of the Grade 1 winning Luas Line, consigned by Ringfort Stud (Lot 81). 

Norelands Stud’s colt by Cable Bay, the first foal out of a daughter of Group 2 winner French Bid (Lot 221), was knocked down for €75,000 to Tally Ho Stud who also secured a son of Camelot from Ryebridge Stud (Lot 191) for €68,000.  Another highlight of today’s trade was a colt by Raven’s Pass out of a half-sister to Group 1 Prix Jean Prat winner Olden Times (Lot 183).  Consigned by Sandra Russell, the foal was knocked down to Darley Japan for €66,000.
