Stakes Double Heads A Winning Weekend For Goffs London Sale

Goffs London Sale in association with QIPCO has enjoyed a number of black type winners in recent days.  On Friday the 2019 sale topper Mohican Heights won the Listed Irish Champions Weekend Stonehenge Stakes at Salisbury by two lengths in the colours of Qatar Racing.  The David Simcock trained Australia colt was purchased from Thomastown Castle in Kensington Palace Gardens in June for £520,000, and set the tone for a weekend of winners from the London Sale.

Shine So Bright was victorious in the Group 2 City Of York Stakes at York on Saturday for King Power Racing and Andrew Balding in a battle for the finish with Goffs UK graduate Laurens who came close second. Bred by Kirsten Rausing’s Lanwades Stud, this bright prospect was purchased by SackvilleDonald for £375,000 from Spigot Lodge Stables and owners Theresa Burns and Martin McHale at the Goffs London Sale 2018.

The Hughie Morrison trained Le Don De Vie concluded the winning weekend, taking the Ladbrokes Handicap at Goodwood yesterday.  Le Don De Vie was bought by Howson, Houldsworth and Group 1 Bloodstock for £460,000 on behalf of owner Aziz Kheir earlier this summer at the London Sale where he was consigned by Kingsclere Racing.

Goffs’ next boutique Horses In Training Sale is the Goffs Champions Sale which takes place as the opening event of Longines Irish Champions Weekend on Saturday 14 September at Leopardstown.
