Willie Mullins to train top lot at Goffs Punchestown Sale
on 29 April 2016
Wexford handler Colin Bowe supplies yet another sale-topper in Getabird

Getabird, a gelding by Getaway offered by Colin Bowe, achieved a top price of €200,000 when selling to Harold Kirk and Willie Mullins at the Goffs Punchestown Sale on Thursday evening. This attractive gelding demonstrated his potential when winning a competitive four-year-old maiden point-to-point last weekend.

The second highest price of the evening was attained by Elegant Escape. This gelding by Dubai Destination showed huge promise when finishing only a length behind the Goffs UK Aintree sale topper, Samcro, on his only start. Elegant Escape was sold by Christopher Donnelly and was purchased by John Romans and Colin Tizzard for €150,000.

Harold Kirk and Willie Mullins struck again when purchasing the French-bred Vent d’Automne, a gelding by the sire of Un De Sceaux, Denham Red, for €100,000. Other significant purchases included sixth length winner My Story by Court Cave, offered by Donnchadh Doyle and selling to Roger Brookhouse for €90,000.

Gerry Hogan Bloodstock also got involved in proceedings purchasing a total of three lots including the progressive looking Flemensfirth gelding Castlegrace Paddy for €75,000.

Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby said: "We are very happy with the results and enjoyed a strong and vibrant trade for our small catalogue. We secured every horse that was available to us in the lead-up to the sale and between this sale and our excellent debut at Aintree, Goffs have made a very significant impact in the point-to-point market.”
