LAST year’s Goffs Autumn Horses-In-Training and Yearling Sales were online affairs but it’s back to some kind of normal next week in Kill for three busy days of selling.
Future Melbourne Cup winner Twilight Payment was sold here three years ago. He was sold by Godolphin that day for €200,000 and raced in Jackie Bolger’s colours for his first four starts in 2019, winning twice, before being acquired privately by Joseph O’Brien for Lloyd Williams.
The star of the 2019 Autumn Yearling sale turned out to be Laws Of Indices. Bought for just €8,000 in the yearling sale by agent Dermot Farrington, the son of Power won the Group 2 Railway Stakes as a juvenile and the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat this season, before being sold to race in Australia.
Last year’s Autumn Yearling Sale has also produced a wonderful story in Quick Suzy. Sold to Aoife Dunphy for €20,000, the filly was sold by the Dunphys after she won her Curragh maiden and subsequently won the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes for her American owners and is on course for the Breeders’ Cup next weekend.
Her trainer Gavin Cromwell is sending a draft to the Horses-in-Training Sale, and other leading trainers with consignments include Michael Halford, Denis Hogan, Tracey Collins, Willie McCreery,
The Aga Khan Studs are selling four horses, including the 106-rated Erzindjan, who has won two races for Dermot Weld and raced nine times this year, including when finishing second in Group 3 company over a mile at Leopardstown.
A further 25 yearlings were added to the catalogue this week.
