Kingman Rules On Day 3 Of Goffs November Foal Sale

Kingman ruled the sales ring on Day 3 of Goffs November Foal Sale with the Juddmonte sire accounting for the top three highest priced Lots during a session where fierce foal trade right from the outset saw major gains across all the key indicators. 

Star billing went to Airlie Stud’s magnificent Kingman colt, a half-brother to Sonia Rogers and Anthony Rogers’ Champion two-year-old filly and Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes winner Skitter Scatter (Lot 727).  The colt, whose dam Dane Street has also produced 2022 Listed winner and Group 2 Superlative Stakes runner up Victory Dance, topped the sale when selling to Stauffenberg Bloodstock for €550,000.

Roundhill Stud offered another smashing son of Kingman (Lot 606) that was sold to Juddmonte for €530,000.  The colt is out of Bobby and Honora Donworth’s wonderful foundation family that boasts Group 1 winner Zabeel Prince, Group 2 winners Puissance De Lune and Queen Power as well as Champion 2YO filly Rizeena. 

Katsumi Yoshida of Northern Farm secured three foals on Day 3 which were headed by the €460,000 purchase of a Kingman filly from The Castlebridge Consignment (Lot 688).  She is the first foal out of winning Teofilo mare Assurance who is an own sister to Group 1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Gear Up.

The Juddmonte presence continued with the fourth highest priced Lot of the day.  Swordlestown Little jointly topped the November Foal Sale in 2020 with their Frankel colt out of Nisriyna who went on to become Group 1 two-year-old Arrest, and today Juddmonte’s Barry Mahon signed the docket at €340,000 for Arrest’s half-brother by Wootton Bassett (Lot 591). 

Rockfield Farm provided another of the day’s standouts with a son of No Nay Never (Lot 602) out of the Listed winning Piece Of Paradise selling to Rockbank Bloodstock for €330,000.  Ballylinch Stud’s Lope de Vega colt, also out of a Listed winner in Tifosa (Lot 659) sold to Trinity Bloodstock for €310,000, while late in the day a filly from the final crop of the great Champion Galileo (Lot 758) was sold by The Castlebridge Consignment to BBA Ireland for €290,000.
