KINGMAN COLT MAKES €850,000 AT GOFFS ORBY
A KINGMAN colt out of Alexander Queen was the highest priced colt (and second highest priced yearling) on day one of Goffs Orby Sale.
The colt was bought by David Redvers for €850,000. Redvers commented: "The sire has made a very bright start at stud and we have a very
smart filly by him [Sparkle Roll]. There are a couple of others by him
that we like too. This colt was an outstanding physical and we are
delighted to get what we considered to be the strongest colt in the
The first six-figure transaction of the day was for a FRANKEL filly who was the second lot into the ring. Consigned by Baroda and Colbinstown Studs, she is a half-sister to multiple Group winner Kingsgate Native. She was purchased by American agent Shawn Dugan for €500,000. Dugan said: "She is a gorgeous filly, just stunning.
“She is very athletic and a wonderful mover and she looks
powerful too. We really liked her and she has got it all, as a daughter
of a top-class sire and a half-sister to a top-class sprinter. Initially she
will go back to Jamie Lloyd in England to be broken and we will take
it from there."
FRANKEL's second highest priced yearling of the day was a Mount Coote-consigned colt out of stakes winner Vital Statistics. He made €400,000 when Stephen Hillen and Kevin Ryan brought the hammer down. His two-year-old sister EAST has been supplemented to run in the Prix Thomas Bryon (Gr.3) at Saint-Cloud on Friday.
The only BATED BREATH colt offered on day one made €55,000, selling to Stephen Hillen and Kevin Ryan. He is out of a Gr.3-placed daughter of Red Feather.
