Ghaiyyath Colt Heads Strong Second Session Of Goffs November Sale

World Champion Ghaiyyath first hit the headlines when he topped the Goffs November Foal Sale in 2015, and today a foal from his first crop took top billing during a memorable second session of Goffs November Sale when Ridge Manor Stud’s colt by the four-time Group 1 winning son of Dubawi (Lot 474 - pictured) sold to Pier House Stud for €185,000.  

The day's trade returned notable rises over the corresponding day last year, with double the number of six figure foals, a clearance rate of 83%, and rises in turnover of 11%, average of 13% and median of 7%.

Airlie Stud’s Night Of Thunder colt out of the UAE 1000 Guineas runner up Good Place, Lot 516, was another of the most sought-after foals on Day 2 as the brother to recent two-year-old winner Banddar was knocked down to Grove Stud at €180,000. 

Sires on fire New Bay and Mehmas dominated the next four highest priced positions.  John Rowe and Spirnac Bloodstock went to €145,000 for Ballylinch Stud’s New Bay colt (Lot 424) while Rowe also secured a Mehmas own-brother to the Marble Hill Stakes placed Mehmar from Kildallan Farm for €115,000 in partnership with Lilly Bloodstock.

Amy Marnane Bloodstock offered another hugely popular Mehmas colt out of a Stakes placed mare (Lot 446) that sold to Tally Ho Stud for €145,000.  Camas Park Stud meanwhile went to €140,000 for Lot 401 from Oghill House Stud, a son of New Bay out of an own-sister to Group 1 winner Marcel who was also bred and sold by Oghill House as a foal at Goffs November Sale.
