Barney Roy | Racing Post

A total of 470 yearlings will go under the hammer during the two-day Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale on Aug. 29-30 and the catalogue is available here. Both G1 St James's Palace S. winner Barney Roy (GB) (Excelebration {Ire}) and G1 Darley July Cup victor Harry Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) are past graduates of the sale, while Rajasinghe (Ire) (Choisir {Aus}) scooped the G2 Coventry S. and Different League (Fr) (Dabirsim {Fr}) duly saluted in the G3 Albany S. at Royal Ascot.

Sires represented over the two-day stand are: Acclamation (GB); Bated Breath (GB); Cape Cross (Ire); Dandy Man (Ire); Dawn Approach (Ire); Havana Gold (Ire); Helmet (Aus), already the sire of MG1SW Thunder Snow (Ire); Holy Roman Emperor (Ire), Kendargent (Fr), Mastercraftsman (Ire); Olympic Glory (Ire); Pivotal (GB); Slade Power (Ire), Teofilo (Ire), Toronado (Ire), and War Command among many others.

One of the notable lots is a Battlefield Stud-consigned colt (lot 85) by Zoffany (Ire). Out of South African Grade 1 winner Igreja (Arg) (Southern Halo), the February-foaled bay's dam is a full-sister to Argentinean MG1SW Taimazov (Arg).

Lot 101, a son of G2 Cherry Hinton S. heroine Jewel in The Sand (Ire) (Bluebird), who is also a half-sister to German listed hero Davignon (GB) (Highest Honor {Fr}), should also attract some attention. By one of the hottest sires of the moment in Dark Angel (Ire), the bay is consigned by Croom House Stud.

Juddmonte's champion Frankel (GB) is represented by a single yearling in the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale in lot 120, a daughter of G3 Summer S. victress Ladies Are Forever (GB) (Monsieur Bond {Ire}). Offered by CSB Breeding Ltd., the chestnut's dam is a full to G1 Betfred Sprint Cup third Hoof It (GB).

Kodiac (GB)'s juveniles have been on quite a tear recently, and Newsells Park Stud consigns one of the best bred lots in the entire sale, lot 191, a filly out of a winning Sadler's Wells half-sister to wonder mare and three-time GI Breeders' Cup Mile heroine Goldikova (Ire) (Anabaa). The well-related March foal's dam is also a half to G1SW Galikova (Fr) (Galileo {Ire}); Anodin (Ire) (Anabaa), GSW and MG1SP; Gold Luck (Fr) (Redoute's Choice {Aus}), GSW and G1SP; and Group 3 winners Gold Sound (Fr) (Green Tune) and Gold Round (Ire) (Caerleon).

Baroda and Colbinstown Studs offer a Mukhadram (GB) filly as lot 355. She is a half-sister to 2017 G2 Railway S. hero Beckford (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}) out of a winning half-sister to MGSW Malabar (GB) (Raven's Pass) and the GSP Poet's Word (Ire) (Poet's Voice {Ire}).

“The stature of the Doncaster Premier Sale has grown significantly in recent years and the 2017 catalogue is without doubt another big leap forward,” said Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams. “We have worked hard with consignors over the last few years to develop the quality of yearlings offered and we are delighted and most thankful to those who have entered some outstanding yearlings. The results achieved on the track this season, headed by Group 1 winning 3-year-olds Barney Roy and Harry Angel, are a big boost to this sale's rapidly growing international reputation and are evidence of its ability to produce some of the best horses in Europe.”
