Goffs Instant Online: Quilita Sells For €205,000 To Dahlbury

Today’s Goffs Instant Online sale saw Quilita, the dam of dual Grade 1 and Cheltenham Festival winner Quilixios, sell for €205,000 to Simon Davies of DahlBury.


 
The 12-year-old daughter of Lomitas, who is in foal to the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Waldgeist and is Graded placed herself, attracted bids from multiple buyers before selling to DahlBury shortly after 1pm.  Following his successful bid, Simon Davies said:
 
“Quilita appealed to us as a quality mare with a proven ability to breed Grade 1 performers, and as such she fits what we are trying to achieve here at DahlBury.  We are continually investing in our broodmare band to support our stallions and have been delighted with the calibre of mares that have visited Bangkok, Planteur and Walzertakt this spring.
 
Quilita will join last week’s Goffs UK August Sale topper Miss Heritage as well as Put The Kettle On, who we purchased at the Aintree Sale and is now successfully in foal to Planteur, at DahlBury.  Quilita is our third big purchase from Goffs and we have found the process very straight forward and transparent.  She is in foal to an exciting young stallion in Waldgeist and she should suit Bangkok who is a tremendously good looking individual and has been well supported in his first season”.
 
Quilixios won the Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle at last year’s Cheltenham Festival as well as the Grade 1 Spring Juvenile Hurdle at the Dublin Racing Festival and has been Graded placed on three occasions in the past season.  Quilita was offered by Oghill House Stud for owner Sean Martin.  Following the sale, Joe Burke representing the vendor said:
 
“The whole team at Goffs did a fantastic job in facilitating the sale of Quilita from organising the videos all the way thorough to the actual online sale and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. It’s a brilliant platform for vendors to sell stock hassle-free at the opportune time.”
 
Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby commented:
 
Goffs were delighted to offer another classy mare online today and the excellent result is a superb endorsement of Goffs Instant which is ready and available at 48 hours’ notice to sell any thoroughbred of quality. We are grateful to the vendors for their trust and especially appreciative of Simon Davies of DahlBury as this is the third high profile broodmare he has bought from our sales this year. We wish him every success with them”.
