Group 1 winner Miss Beatrix added to 2018 Goffs London Sale

Group 1 winner Miss Beatrix, in foal to the 2015 Champion Sprinter Muhaarar, will be offered for sale at the 2018 Goffs London Sale in association with QIPCO.

The daughter of Danehill Dancer won the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and Goffs Million in 2006 and she is carrying a full sibling to the Muhaarar colt that sold for €340,000 at the 2017 Goffs November Foal Sale. 

Four time Group 1 winner Muhaarar lit up the 2015 sprinting scene when he won the Commonwealth Cup at the Royal Meeting followed by the Darley July Cup, before heading to France where we won the Prix Maurice de Gheest.  Back at Ascot in October that year he won the British Champions Sprint Stakes and was crowned Champion Sprinter.  

Miss Beatrix is the second mare to be catalogued for the eve of Royal Ascot sale, following confirmation this week of Landikusic, the own sister to Zoffany in foal to Frankel.

Henry Beeby, Group Chief Executive of Goffs said:

“We are delighted to offer Miss Beatrix in London this year and are very grateful to her owner Bill Durkan.  Miss Beatrix has a long and successful association with Goffs having won the first Goffs Million back in 2006, while her foals have sold exceptionally well here, the two most recent at Goffs selling for €340,000 and €370,000.  It is particularly exciting that she is back in foal to Muhaarar. 

Our aim as in previous years is to offer a small but highly select collection of breeding stock in London alongside the main focus of Horses In Training.  In addition to Landikusic and Miss Beatrix, we are in discussions on a couple of other exciting prospects which will complete the optimum number for this category”.  

Pat Gilson from Ballintougher Stud who will consign the mare on behalf of the owner commented:    

“Miss Beatrix is a lovely looking mare, but what excites me the most is the future Muhaarar she is carrying. Her last foal was a Muhaarar and he was a particularly impressive looking foal which was reflected by the price he fetched at the Goffs Foal Sale back in November.

London Sale nominations for Horses In Training and Breeding Stock are currently being taken.  International buyers are looking for Royal Ascot runners and horses with export potential for key races in Australia, the Middle East and Hong Kong.  Broodmares in foal to elite sires or exciting freshman sires will be considered, as will well-bred older fillies who may have to be retired in April, May or June and may appeal to the Australian market as a large number of Southern Hemisphere buyers are confirmed to attend this year’s sale.

Nominations for horses in training and breeding stock entries can be made by contacting Goffs on +353 45 886600 or online at www.GoffsLondonSale.com
