In-form Matilda Picotte Joins Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale Catalogue

Matilda Picotte | Goffs

Friday's G2 Challenge S. heroine Matilda Picotte (Ire) (Sioux Nation), who was Classic placed earlier this year, will be offered by Clonanny Bloodstock at the upcoming Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale from Nov. 24-25. The multiple group winner will sell on Nov. 24, opening day of the sale.

A daughter of the stakes performer Hallie's Comet (Ire) (One Cool Cat), the 3-year-old filly was bred by Mighty Universe, Ltd., and raced for trainer Kieran Cotter and the Matilda & Kilmichael Racing Partnership. Placed in both the G2 Airlie Stud S. and the G2 Lowther S., she claimed the Listed “Bosra Sham” Fillies' S. at Newmarket last October. At three, she was second in the G3 “Priory Belle” 1000 Guineas Trial S., and third in the G1 1000 Guineas back in Newmarket. Third later this year in the G3 Fairy Bridge S., Matilda Picotte won the G3 Sceptre Fillies' S. before doubling up at the group level with Friday's win.

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “Matilda Picotte demonstrated real star appeal at Newmarket this afternoon and is a hugely appealing international racing and breeding prospect so we are thrilled and grateful to connections that she will take her place among the stellar lineup for this year's Goffs November Sale.  We look forward to welcoming the world to Kildare Paddocks for Europe's first major breeding stock sale of the year and are excited to reveal the outstanding catalogue in the coming days.”

The full catalogue, featuring over 40 horses from the Niarchos family's bloodstock holdings will be revealed on Tuesday, Oct. 17.
