Talented Barraquero Wins Gr.2 Richmond Stakes

Goffs November Foal Sale and Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale graduate BARRAQUERO put in an impressive performance at today’s Goodwood Festival to win the prestigious Group 2 Qatar Richmond Stakes.

The 2YO son of Zebedee, trained by Brian Meehan, won his maiden by six-lengths in fine fashion on his last start at Chepstow and took another big step up today when leading home the field in the Group 2 by one-and-a-quarter-lengths. The win continues a brilliant season for the Doncaster Premier Sale with Barraquero becoming the sale’s third Group winning 2YO for 2017 alongside Royal Ascot winners Rajasinghe and Different League.

Barraquero was first sold at the Goffs November Foal Sale by Cloneymore Farm to Goffs UK Director Jeremy Mactaggart for €40,000. He was subsequently sold at the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale by Wells Stud to Sam Sangster Bloodstock for £30,000.
