Group 3 winner Go Athletico (Fr) (Goken {Fr}) attracted a bid of €165,000 from Shamrock Thoroughbreds manager Stephen Thorne during Friday's Auctav Flash Sale. The price is a record for a Flat horse on the online platform.

Stephen Thorne, Shamrock Thoroubreds manager, said of the former AB Racing runner, “Go Athletico looks like a very nice and strong prospect. He is a solid horse to compete in Ireland in sprint races. He will go in training with Ado McGuiness. We are delighted.”

“We quickly found our niche in the NH discipline and quickly created a network in the Arabian thoroughbred market,” explained Arnaud Angéliaume, CEO of Auctav. “We have worked hard in recent months to make the Auctav brand better known among actors of Flat racing, trainers, owners, bloodstock agents, and this is a mission that will continue throughout the year. We thank the owners of Go Athletico for trusting us with the sale of this performer and Stephen Thorne as well as the other bidders for showing their interest in this very beautiful lot.”
