THE final day of the Goffs February Sale was devoted exclusively to breeding prospects and the top lot in this section was the winning Giant’s Causeway mare Recife who cost €110,000.
The half-sister to several quality American runners was bought by Meath-based Rathbran House Stud and she was sold in foal to Mehmas.
Two mares fetched €90,000 and the second of these was the last lot into the ring this week, the Walk In The Park five-year-old Bridal Knot. The half-sister to the top-class jumpers Might Bite and Beat That was snapped up by Carlow-based breeder Seamus Byrne.
The other €90,000 transaction concerned Godolphin’s Belonging, a stakes-placed daughter of Raven’s Pass who was sold in foal to Dark Angel. She was bought by the BBA Ireland.
Godolphin also offered the Monsun mare Panegyric who cost Tally-Ho Stud €85,000. She is already the dam of a listed-placed runner in France and is related to a pair of Group 1-winning juveniles in Ultra and Modern Games. She was sold in foal to Cracksman.
