Gordon Elliott to train £300,000 bumper winner
on 28 January 2021
Noel and Valerie Moran added to their string on Tuesday by purchasing the top lot at the Goffs UK online sale

GORDON Elliott and owners Noel and Valerie Moran acquired another very exciting jump racing prospect on Tuesday when paying £300,000 at the Goffs UK January Sale for the Carlisle bumper winner Hollymount.

The sale took place online and was one of 36 horses sold during the session for a total of £1.1 million.

Previously trained by Stuart Crawford, Hollymount is a half-sister to the Grade 2-placed pair Windsor Avenue and Ravenhill. The mare won her debut bumper by an impressive eight-lengths last month.

Hollymount was sold on behalf of Peter and Alan Buchanan.

The sale saw three horses sell for six-figure sums, the others being dual Grade 1 winning mare La Bague Au Roi, who sold to retired footballer Kevin Doyle and Peter Nolan for £170,000, and Yorton Farm’s Buck's Bee, a half-sister to the multiple Grade 1 winner Big Buck's, which sold to Kieran Mariga’s Coolmara Stables in Youghal, Co Cork, for £125,000.
