Trainer Martin Brassil landed the top lot during the opening session of the Goffs Land Rover Sale on Tuesday, and he repeated the dose on the sale’s second and final day on Wednesday when securing a 3-year-old son of Beat Hollow (GB) (lot 280) for €90,000. The unbroken gelding is a half-brother to the listed-placed mare Masons Daughter (Ire) (Sandmason {GB}).

Nine lots later, Harold Kirk and trainer Willie Mullins teamed up for Supermound (Ger) (Sea The Moon {Ger}) lot 289, a 3-year-old gelded half-brother to Soprana (Ger) (Cadeaux Genereux {GB}), who is listed-placed on the flat in Germany for €75,000. The third highest-priced lot on the day was lot 520, a 3-year-old gelding by Elusive Pimpernel bought by Aidan O’Ryan and Gordon Elliott for €70,000.

Thursday’s Part 2 session of the sale saw 177 sold for €3,602,500, at an average of €20,353 and a median of €17,000.
