Spectacular Pinhook Tops Opening Day of Goffs Autumn Yearling Sale

Spectacular Pinhook Tops Opening Day of Goffs Autumn Yearling Sale


One of the pinhooking touches of the year was the highlight of a strong first day at the Goffs Autumn Yearling Sale as Clonmult Farm’s daughter of The Last Lion (Lot 201) sold to Rabbah Bloodstock for €78,000, an incredible return on her purchase price of just €1,000 at last year’s Goffs November Foal Sale Part 2.  A filly with a strong black type page, she is out of a winning sister to two Group 1 winners in Classic winner Indian Haven and Champion 2YO in Italy Count Dubois.

Buyers from right across Europe were in action throughout the day’s trade which saw turnover increase by 30% on the corresponding day last year, while rises in average and median prices were also recorded.

The Autumn Yearling Sale continues at 10am tomorrow with 164 yearlings catalogued, and they will be followed immediately in the afternoon by the Autumn Horses In Training Sale.
