Group 1 Coronation Cup Glory For Goffs Graduate Ghaiyyath

 

Two days at Newmarket...

Two Dubawi winners for Godolphin...

Two Goffs graduates...

 

The brilliant Ghaiyyath landed Britain’s first Group 1 of the season with a scintillating front-running performance in this afternoon’s Hurworth Bloodstock Coronation Cup under William Buick. 

Trained by Charlie Appleby, the five-year-old son of Dubawi out of Irish 1000 Guineas winner Nightime set a new course record, powering home ahead of 2019 Epsom Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck in second and multiple Group 1 winner Stradivarious third. 

Ghaiyyath was Europe’s top priced colt foal of 2015 when topping the Goffs November Foal Sale at €1.1m, bought by John Ferguson and consigned by The Castlebridge Consignment on behalf of breeders Springbank Way Stud. His own-brother topped last year’s November Foal Sale when selling to Godolphin for €1.2m, the highest priced foal in the world in 2019.

Creative Force was a commanding winner on his debut yesterday at Newmarket, and connections’ sights are set on the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot for the Dubawi colt who is a half-brother to Group 1 QEII winner Persuasive.

Creative Force, pictured below, was sold by John Tuthill’s Owenstown Stud to Godolphin for €400,000 at the 2019 Goffs Orby Sale.

 

Congratulations to all winning connections.
