€290,000 Izzy Bizu tops Goffs Champions Sale at Leopardstown
on 09 September 2017
The stakes-winning juvenile, consigned by Mark Johnston's Kingsley House Stables, was sold to Tom Malone and Casey Malone

GOFFS Champions Sale, in association with Brown Thomas, got Irish Champions Weekend off to a great start at Leopardstown today as a strong catalogue of 10 horses in training went under the hammer in the winner’s enclosure before racing.

Trade was topped by Izzy Bizu (Lot 10), the listed-winning two-year-old filly consigned by Mark Johnston’s Kingsley House Stables, who sold to Tom Malone and daughter Casey Malone for €290,000.

BBA Ireland secured five lots in total, headed by Joanne Lavery’s juvenile winner Burgundy Boy (Lot 5), who sold for €260,000, and another highlight was the sale of Highfort Stable’s Massif Central (Lot 4) to Michael Halford for €200,000.

Commenting on trade at the Champions Sale, Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby said: "Goffs Champions Sale once again proved to be a truly international affair with buyers from the UK and Ireland competing with international interest from China and Hong Kong.

"We have received great support from vendors this year and again insisted that the Goffs Champions Sale is all about quality.

"The sale acts as the perfect curtain raiser to Longines Irish Champions Weekend and we are extremely grateful to the Leopardstown team for their support."
