Frankel Filly To Be Offered At 2017 Goffs London Sale in association with QIPCO


Four years ago, the first Frankel foal ever to be sold at public auction made £1.15million with his dam at the inaugural Goffs London Sale in association with QIPCO. Today, Goffs are delighted to announce another Frankel foal will be on offer to purchasers at this year’s renewal, this time a filly, out of Millevini, a half-sister to Classic winner, Kingston Hill.

Heatherwold Stud, Burghclere will offer the nine-year-old mare, who is currently in foal to the 2014 Champion Miler, Kingman on the eve of Royal Ascot at the Orangery, Kensington Palace on Monday 19 June 2017. 

Kingston Hill’s impressive career included victories in the Group 1 St Leger as a three-year-old and Group 1 win as a two-year-old. The Roger Varian-trained son of Mastercraftsman now stands at Coolmore Stud.


Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby said:

“Frankel fever is a global phenomenon at the moment and we are delighted to bring it back to London this year following the massive interest at our first London Sale. One of our goals in 2017 is to add a small selection of elite breeding stock to our superb catalogue of top class Horses-In-Training and this mare and filly foal absolutely fulfil that criteria. We are working on others to complement them alongside an exciting array of form horses, many of which will have Royal Ascot entries.”

Jeremy Brummitt on behalf of Heatherwold Stud added:

“One gets used to hearing the normal platitudes from vendors, but I think this filly speaks for herself. I can’t imagine anyone who sees her will be disappointed.

It’s exciting to support the brave initiative of the London Sale. I think it’s very important for the profile of British and Irish breeding and which we should all support.”

David Redvers, on behalf of QIPCO added:

“We have been encouraged by the way in which the sale has developed since its inaugural year in 2014 and delighted to be title sponsor for a fourth year. To continually attract exciting breeding stock entries along with Horses in Training engaged in races at Royal Ascot demonstrates there is a market for this type of sale. It has always been our vision to attract new investment into British and Irish bloodstock and believe the sale does just that.”

The Goffs London Sale has sold the highest priced horses in training and recorded the highest HIT average in the UK in each of the past three years. Graduates of the sale include Australian Group 1 winner Pornichet, Classic winner Harbour Law and Saudi Arabian Group 1 winner Smoking Sun as well as Stakes winners such as Realtra, Jet Setting, Madam Dancealot and Mirage.
