Camelot Filly Tops Sportsman’s Sale Opening Day At €100,000


Today’s opening session of the two-day Goffs Sportsman’s Sale saw solid demand throughout from a broad base of trainers and agents from Ireland, the UK and right across Europe; in particular significant buying groups from Scandinavia, Poland and Italy.    

Pine Tree Stud provided the day’s top lot when their beautiful daughter of Camelot, Lot 625, was knocked down to Stroud Coleman and George Murphy for €100,000.   The filly is a sister to two winners from two runners, including the recent 2YO Listed winning filly Orlaith, and the dam is a half-sister to a Champion 2YO in Toormore as well as the Group 2 winner Estidhkaar.  

The next highest price today of €70,000 was achieved on two occasions, first was The Castlebridge Consignment’s No Nay Never filly from a strong black type family that includes Group 1 winners Royal Applause, Lyric Fantasy and In Command (Lot 642) who sold to Church Farm Stables.  Her price was matched ten lots later by another from the Castlebridge Consignment – this time a Fastnet Rock colt out of an own sister to the Group 1 Coronation Stakes, Yorkshire Oaks and Matron Stakes winning Champion filly Lush Lashes (Lot 652) who was purchased by Gerry Hogan Bloodstock.

David Redvers earlier secured a smart son of Kodiac from Tally Ho Stud, Lot 529, out of the Group 3 Lillie Langtry Stakes placed Victoria Montoya for €65,000, while Karl and Kelly Burke later went to €62,000 for Castletown Stud’s Footstepsinthesand colt out of a Group placed sister to Group 1 winner Montmartre (Lot 585).
