NEWS: Whistle Dixie tipped to top Goffs sale
on 07 December 2018
Gigginstown House Stud is offering eight mares at next week's December National Hunt Sale

GIGGINSTOWN House Stud could complete a treble at Goffs next week when it offers the Grade 3-winning mare Whistle Dixie for sale.

Two years ago Gigginstown topped the Goffs December NH Sale with Petite Parisienne (€130,000) and Michael O’Leary’s farm repeated the feat 12 months ago with Tocororo (€100,000).

Whistle Dixie is arguably even more attractive than those two as she is a Kayf Tara half-sister to Gold Cup winner Kicking King and in foal to Mount Nelson. Whistle Dixie is also a half-sister to the dam of leading Arkle Chase candidate Kalashnikov.

The Gigginstown draft also includes Coquine D’Aunou (in foal to Mount Nelson), Chesapeake (in foal to Doyen), Monastery, Dawn In The Park, Cara’s Way, Azua Emery and Sweetlight D’Oroux.

The catalogue also features Lady Ruby, an Oscar half-sister to Grade 1 winner Annacotty and in foal to Beat Hollow. Kates The Best, a sister to Scottish Champion Hurdle winner In Contrast, is offered in-foal to Kayf Tara.

National Hunt foals account for 487 of the 555 lots on offer, and there are also yearlings and older horses for sale.
