Quilita Snapped Up By DahlBury For €205K

Quilita | Goffs Instant Online

Grade 1 producer Quilita (Ger) (Lomitas {GB}) (lot 1) sold for €205,000 to Simon Davies of DahlBury during Tuesday's Goffs Instant Online Sale. Consigned by Oghill House Stud, the 12-year-old who is in foal to Arc hero Walgeist (GB), is the dam of dual Grade 1 and Cheltenham Festival winner Quilixios (GB) (Maxios {GB}). Quilita also placed at the Grade 3 level in Germany.

Davies said, “Quilita appealed to us as a quality mare with a proven ability to breed Grade 1 performers, and as such she fits what we are trying to achieve here at DahlBury. We are continually investing in our broodmare band to support our stallions and have been delighted with the calibre of mares that have visited Bangkok (Ire), Planteur (Ire) and Walzertakt (Ger) this spring.

“Quilita will join last week's Goffs UK August Sale topper Miss Heritage (Ire) (Pour Moi {Ire}) as well as Put The Kettle On (Ire) (Stowaway {GB}), who we purchased at the Aintree Sale and is now successfully in foal to Planteur, at DahlBury. Quilita is our third big purchase from Goffs and we have found the process very straight forward and transparent.  She is in foal to an exciting young stallion in Waldgeist and she should suit Bangkok who is a tremendously good looking individual and has been well supported in his first season.”

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “Goffs were delighted to offer another classy mare online today and the excellent result is a superb endorsement of Goffs Instant which is ready and available at 48 hours' notice to sell any thoroughbred of quality. We are grateful to the vendors for their trust and especially appreciative of Simon Davies of DahlBury as this is the third high profile broodmare he has bought from our sales this year. We wish him every success with them.”
