Paddington | Coolmore

A nomination to brilliant four-time Group 1 winner Paddington (GB) (Siyouni {Fr}) will be auctioned to raise funds on behalf of injured jockey Graham Lee during the first day of the Tattersalls December Mare Sale on Monday, Dec. 4, Coolmore announced on Wednesday.

The lot will be up for bid immediately prior to the first 'Sceptre' lot (1527).  Lee was injured in a fall as the horses left the gates at Newcastle earlier this month and sustained neck and spinal injuries.

“Our partners Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith, George Von Opel and Peter Brant along with everyone here at Coolmore and Ballydoyle wish Graham and his family all the very best,” said Coolmore's MV Magnier.

Paddington's 2024 fee is €55,000 at Coolmore Stud next year.
