Gilt Edge Girl sold to Starcraft owner

THE Tattersalls December Mares Sale has lost one of its likely stars following the withdrawal of Prix de l'Abbaye winner Gilt Edge Girl.

The daughter of Monsieur Bond, who was due to be consigned by Beechdown Farm Stables as lot 1482, has been sold privately by the Wood Street Syndicate V and Chris Harper to Paul Makin, the owner of Starcraft, in a deal brokered by Badgers Bloodstock.

She has been retired from racing and breeding plans are undecided.

After failing to sell for 22,000gns at last year's Tattersalls Mares Sale, Gilt Edge Girl made giant strides this season for trainer Clive Cox to win three races including the Ballyogan Stakes and Prix de l’Abbaye. She retires as the winner of six races and £182,624 in prize-money.
