A NEW online service for stallion owners and breeders will be launched during next week’s Goffs November Sale.
Buyanom.com is the brainchild of breeder and bloodstock agent Luke Lillingston and consignor Ted Voute, Mike Madden and the Irish representative is Jerry Horan.
The website will allow stallion farms to offer nominations for sale and they control the price on display. However, breeders are welcome to submit an offer in confidence.
Mare owners can search the site for stallion options, and the stallion masters can list available nominations at their advertised price, terms and conditions.
“This has been a long time in development and to now be able to go live is a watershed moment for us,” said Lillingston. “We are enormously grateful for the remarkable support we have already received from both stallion and broodmare owners.”
Sumbal to Annshoon Stud
MICHAEL Shefflin’s Annshoon Stud in Mullinavat, Co Kilkenny has a new stallion for 2020. Sumbal is a Group 2 winning son of Danehill Dancer who stood in France this year. He is out of a Linamix mare and shares his sire with the late Jeremy.
The grey Sumbal was trained by Francis-Henri Graffard to win the Group 2 Prix Greffulhe over 10 furlongs.
He will stand alongside Frankel’s full-brother Proconsul and his covering fee is €2,500 for colts and €2,000 for fillies.
