Classic Winning Stallion Prospect Mac Swiney To Sell On Goffs Online

Goffs is delighted to announce that Mac Swiney, winner of the Group 1 Irish 2000 Guineas and Group 1 Futurity Trophy, will be offered for sale on GoffsOnline.com on Friday 20 January by Jim Bolger’s Glebe House Stables.

An exciting opportunity for international and domestic buyers seeking a stallion prospect, Mac Swiney is a five-year-old son of sire-of-sires New Approach out of a Teofilo mare with a stallion’s pedigree.  As a juvenile he won the Group 2 Futurity Stakes at the Curragh and Group 1 Futurity Trophy Stakes at Doncaster before going on to Irish 2000 Guineas glory, giving connections a first win in the Classic and described by the Racing Post as a “serious performance in a decent 2000 Guineas”.  Mac Swiney was also placed in the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Ascot and finished fourth in the Derby at Epsom. 

Mac Swiney’s appeal is further strengthened by the calibre of horses he has beaten throughout his career which include four-time Group 1 winner State Of Rest, dual Group 1 and Classic winner Poetic Flare, Group 1 winner Lucky Vega and Group 2 winning juvenile Cadillac.

The timed online auction will start on 11am and close from 1pm.  Prospective buyers must register and be approved to bid by Goffs.  Click here to register.  A 5% agents commission will be paid to the successful purchaser provided they are a recognised bloodstock agent and/or a licensed trainer.
