Lot 147, a son of Blue Point | Mel Media

Just past the halfway mark during Wednesday's session, lot 147, a son of Blue Point (Ire), was knocked down to Anthony Stroud for 800,000gns at Park Paddocks. Consigned by Station Yard, the bay colt is out of Platinum Coast (Speightstown), herself a half-sister to multiple graded winner Istanford (Istan) and will race for Godolphin. Bred by Mr. and Mrs. Reddy Coffey, the colt made €78,000 on the bid of Blandford Bloodtstock/Station Yard during the 2023 Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale.

Three lots later, a bay son of Kingman (GB) and the stakes-winning Pure Excellence (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) (lot 150) made the same price, once again to Stroud for Godolphin from the consignment of Lynn Lodge Stud. Already a full-brother to Parent's Prayer (Ire), who won the G3 Princess Elizabeth S,, the March colt was bred by Sun Kingdom, Pty., Ltd. He was originally a 230,000gns Tattersalls December foal, who was a 140,000gns buy-back during Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.
