The Goffs Orby sale is proven at producing quality horses and holds huge respect from a large number of quality buyers and sellers internationally.
We struck early this year with lot 5, a son of Sea The Stars from the family of Le Havre and Polar Falcon. He’s a nice scopey horse with plenty of strength.
Territories is a first season sire who was a fast racehorse from a good family so has every chance. We purchased a daughter of his who is a sister to a winner and from the family of Temple Stakes winner, Priceless.
We trained Night Of Thunder to win the 2000 Guineas and he is developing into an exciting sire with his first crop of two year olds performing well. We purchased a colt and a filly by him last week; Night Of Thunder x Zarabaya is from a smart Aga Khan family and is a half sister to a Listed winner whilst Night Of Thunder x Dust Flicker is a brother to a Listed winner who is also the dam of Broome who has performed well as a three-year-old this year.
Other highlights include a daughter of Exceed And Excel who is out of Listed winner Alumni and a sister to a Listed winner from the family of Persuasive among others, A Dark Angel colt out of a Listed winner and a selection of other yearlings by the likes of Le Havre, Vadamos, Fascinating Rock, Pride Of Dubai and The Last Lion.
With the yearling sales season now in full swing, we look forward to a busy week at Newmarket this week going into Book 1, 2 and 3.
