Goffs Orby Sale graduate Cape Blanco landed the Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown this afternoon for the Ballydoyle team.  Showing once again why Goffs Orby Sale is the source of top class racehorses, the Irish Derby winner made all and kept on well in the closing stages to win by 5 ½ lengths from odds on favourite and stablemate Rip Van Winkle.

The Derrick Smith owned son of Galileo was sold at the 2008 Goffs Orby Sale by Garraun Stud to Demi O'Byrne for €330,000. 

Goffs Orby Sale takes place from 28th to 30th September and features 670 real quality good-looking yearlings by the most diverse range of sires to date.  Goffs graduates have won 15 Group 1 races in 09/10 and there is plenty more future stars on offer at the Orby Sale where the focus is the horse.
