Goffs Million could alter first-season sires' table
KHELEYF may have opened up a healthy lead in the first-season sires' table in terms of prize-money won by his progeny, but his rivals will have a chance of bridging the gap in the Goffs Million and the Goffs Fillies Million on Sunday.
None of the eight horses by Kheleyf who passed through the ring during last year's Goffs Million has made it to the final forfeit stage of the contests, which are worth €1 million to each winner and carry a combined value of €3.2m.
Kheleyf's closest pursuer, Exceed And Excel, has one representative in the Million, the Tommy Stack-trained Double Ex.One Cool Cat, third in the table behind the Darley stallions, has none in the Goffs Million, but two daughters entered in the fillies' version. They include Stan's Cool Cat, who has yet to finish out of the first four in five starts and is trained by Paul Cole, who sent over Luck Money to win the Million last year.
Bachelor Duke has one entered in each race - the Jim Bolger-trained colt Tomas An Tsioda in the Million and Dermot Weld's Group 3 winner Luminous Eyes in the fillies' race.
Elusive City also has one runner in each contest, with Richard Hannon's Prix La Rochette victor Soul City entered in the colts' race and Light It Up in the fillies' version.
Danehill Dancer, who holds a lead of more than £500,000 in the overall list of leading sires of two-year-olds by prizemoney won, has three runners entered in the Goffs Million races
