Record Foal Price Tops Day 1 at Goffs December NH Sale

A new record price of €90,000 for a National Hunt foal at Goffs was the highlight of a strong first day at Goffs December National Hunt Sale today.

Topping trade was Ballincurrig House Stud’s Walk In The Park half-brother to Grade 2 winners Minella Foru and Penny Jane (Lot 112).  The colt was bought by Patrick McCann who was also responsible for another record at Goffs earlier in 2018 when selling the Land Rover Sale-topping Flemensfirth gelding through Ballincurrig House for €325,000 to Paul Nicholls.

Another son of Walk In The Park from the Ballincurrig House draft attracted plenty of attention when Lot 155, a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Monalee sold to Richard Frisby for €68,000.  Galbertstown Stud offered another of the Day 1 highlights when Lot 117, a Flemensfirth colt out of a winning half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner and Land Rover graduate God’s Own, who sold to Park Farm for €62,000.
