Goffs UK Premier Sale graduate Golden Horde | Scoop Dyga

Goffs UK has released the catalogue for its Doncaster Premier Sale, with 423 yearlings set to go under the hammer on Sept. 1 and 2. The sale has already enjoyed a fruitful 2020, with Golden Horde (GB) (Lethal Force {Ire}) following on from fellow sale graduate Advertise (GB) (Showcasing {GB}) in winning the G1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot and The Lir Jet (Ire) (Prince of Lir {Ire}) making it back-to-back wins for the sale in the G2 Norfolk S., with A’Ali (Ire) (Society Rock {Ire}) having taken that prize in 2019. Graduate Barney Roy (GB) (Excelebration {Ire}) has won two Group 1s this year, while group-winning juveniles Supremacy (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}), Cairn Gorm (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}) and Ventura Tormenta (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) were also sourced at the sale.

The latter’s half-brother by Starspangledbanner (Aus) (lot 313) is among this year’s offerings at the Premier Sale. Other highlights on paper include a colt by Invincible Spirit (Ire) out of G3 Firth of Clyde S. victress Distinctive (GB) (Tobougg {GB}) (lot 173) and a filly by the same sire out of G1 Nassau S. winner Favourable Terms (GB) (Selkirk) (lot 206); a No Nay Never filly out of a half-sister to Equiano (Fr) (lot 195); a Cotai Glory (GB) half-sister to A’Ali (lot 322); and a full-brother to G3 Hackwood S. winner Yafta (GB) (Dark Angel {Ire}) (lot 423). Haras d’Etreham and La Motteraye Consignment offer a Lope De Vega (Ire) colt out of G3 Round Tower S. winner Royal Empress (Ire) (lot 380) as well as colts by Etreham sires Wootton Bassett (GB) (lot 338) and Almanzor (Fr) (lot 31). Barton Stud offers a filly by leading French sire Siyouni (Fr) (lot 361) out of a half-sister to GI Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf winner Queen’s Trust (GB) (Dansili {GB}).

“It has been a very strong year for the Premier Sale on the track and once again it has proved its ability to produce horses of the highest calibre with A’Ali and particularly Golden Horde,” said Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent. “Both elite 2-year-olds last year, they have progressed in their 3-year-old season to hold strong stallion credentials and look set to follow other top graduates such as Advertise and Harry Angel who have recently secured their place at leading studs in the same way as the likes of Acclamation, Dark Angel, Wootton Bassett etc. Seeing these results is very exciting for the sale and the host of top 2-year-olds we have this year, headlined by the likes of Cairn Gorm, Method, Supremacy, The Lir Jet and Ventura Tormenta certainly puts it in a strong position for the latter half of the season and their Classic season next year.

“We have some outstanding yearlings catalogued this year, including siblings to some of our star performers, and we have plenty to look forward to over the coming weeks with a number of graduates lining up in Group 1 races. We will be busy in the build-up marketing this catalogue to our ever-growing global audience and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Doncaster on Sept. 1 and 2, where we will be strictly following the updated protocols to ensure that we comply with the UK Government’s latest COVID guidelines.”
