Goffs Topper Qatar-Bound


Wood Ranger | Goffs

Three-year-old gelding Wood Ranger (Ire) (Kodi Bear {Ire}) is bound for Qatar after selling to Hassan Abdul Malik for €64,000 to top the Goffs Online Summer Sale, which concluded on Tuesday. Wood Ranger (lot 19) was sold from Willie McCreery's Rathbride Stables, having won two of nine starts including a five furlong Class 4 handicap most recently at Naas on June 23.

The Aga Khan Studs was responsible for six of the 18 offerings, and its Ebasari (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) (lot 1) is set for a change of code after being bought by Willie Mullins for €47,000.

Commenting on the sale, during which nine horses sold for an aggregate of €174,000, average of €19,333 and a median of €10,000, Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “We are pleased with a satisfactory level of trade in our Online Summer Sale which proved once again that Goffs Online is a timely and successful platform for selling horses in training to an international audience at relatively low cost to the vendor. Goffs Online has turned over more than €10.5 million since its introduction in 2020 and is now a permanent fixture at Goffs, offering an additional avenue to the market place at all our sales both in person and virtual.”
