Next week’s Goffs November Sale will offer foals by many of the world’s leading sires.  Today we take a look at five of the top stallions who are represented with some outstanding foals…

Galileo - 4
A world class draft of four Galileo foals headline a quality-packed catalogue for next week’s Goffs November Foal Sale.
One of the best pages on offer at any sale this year is that of Lot 709, the Galileo half-sister to dual Derby winner and sire Harzand.  The dam Hazariya has also produced Group winners Harasiya and Hazarafa.  The first of the Castlebridge-consigned four Galileos through the ring will be Lot 570, a filly and the first foal out of Replete who is out of Champion filly Banks Hill and is a half-sister to the Group 1 Prix Jean Romanet winner Romantica. 
The two outstanding Galileo colts at the November Foal Sale are the half-brother to the multiple Australian Group 1 winner and record breaking sire Zoustar (Lot 637) as well as a half-brother to Group 2 Lowther Stakes and Group 3 Princess Margaret Stakes winner Besharah (Lot 680).
