Alcohol Free's Dam To Goffs November 

The Goffs November Breeding Stock catalogue will be released next month

Plying (Hard Spun), the dam of treble Group 1 winner Alcohol Free (Ire) (No Nay Never), will be consigned to the Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale by Jossestown Farm. The 11-year-old mare, who is also the dam of French listed winner Alexander James (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), is currently in foal to Lope De Vega (Ire).

The Fethard-based Jossestown Farm bought Plying from the same sale in 2018 for €21,000 just days after her then-weanling filly by No Nay Never was sold by her breeder Churchtown House Stud for €40,000 to Jeff Smith's Littleton Stud. As Alcohol Free, she went on to win last season's G1 Juddmonte Cheveley Park S. Returning in great form in 2021, she won the G3 Fred Darling S. on her 3-year-old debut, followed by the G1 Coronation S. at Royal Ascot. Alcohol Free's most recent triumph came when defeating 2000 Guineas and G1 St James's Palace S. winner Poetic Flare (Ire) (Dawn Approach {Ire}) in the G1 Qatar Sussex S. at Glorious Goodwood. 

“Plying is dam of one of the season's true stars in Alcohol Free and has proven to be the shrewdest of investments by Jossestown Farm who purchased her at our November Breeding Stock three years ago, so we are absolutely thrilled that she will return to the same sale as the star of the show this year,” said Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby.

“On behalf of the whole team at Goffs, I wish to extend my thanks to them for putting their trust in the Goffs service. Mares of Plying's calibre epitomise the Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale's reputation as a source of Group 1 producers and it is no wonder it attracts such a diverse audience of leading broodmare buyers each year. I am very pleased to confirm that Plying headlines a particularly strong catalogue for the first major European breeding stock sale of the year for which our marketing team and overseas agents are already working hard to promote the sale to an international audience. Plying is a mare that would grace any breeding stock sale anywhere in the world and we anticipate global interest.”

The Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale takes place at Kildare Paddocks on Nov. 18 and 19 between Parts 1 and 2 of the November Foal Sale.
