Clearance rate
remains high at Goffs

WITH approximately 60 lots still to sell during the second session of the Goffs Orby Sale, the average was running at €63,179 for 112 lots sold. The clearance rate is 86 per cent.

However, no yearling has yet come close to breaking yesterday's top mark of €475,000, which was set by a Giant's Causeway filly out of Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Saoire.

A son of Pivotal from the family of Melbourne Cup hopeful Profound Beauty remains the dearest lot sold so far today at €320,000. John Ferguson was the successful bidder on the colt, who was offered by his breeder, Moyglare Stud Farm.

Also popular was a daughter of Galileo and Cherry Hinton Stakes winner Jewel In The Sand (292), for whom the BBA Ireland paid €310,000. The filly marked the highlight of a successful sale for CroomHouse Stud, who have sold every one of their yearlings so far.
