The Goffs London Sale in association with Qipco will take place on Monday 13 June and the horses-in-training entries are now available to view online. Entries include some very attractive future prospects with plenty of black type opportunities, many of which will hold engagements at the Royal Meeting.
The two-year-old entries are a strong group and include some eye-catching fillies such as the Richard Fahey trained filly Vona. This daughter of Dark Angel, who is from a top Juddmonte family, won the Listed Marygate Stakes at the recent York meeting and looks a contender for the Queen Mary. Another attractive prospect is Mark Johnston’s Kodiac filly Katrine, winner of her only start.
The two-year-old colts include Leopardstown winner Lundy (pictured), a son of Fastnet Rock who went on to be a close second in the Listed Rochestown Stakes. Another Irish trained two-year-old is Patrick Prendergast’s Callender, a winner at Navan two weeks ago.
Recent UK trained two-year-old colts to have caught the eye include Pretty Vacant, a winner on Monday at Leicester for Roger Varian, and Jeremy Noseda’s Monks Stand, winner of his two most recent starts. Yorkshire trainer Tony Coyle looked to have unleashed a serious contender in Plata O Plomo, easy winner of his only start to date last week at Haydock. The Paul Cole trained Medieval, a winner of his only start at Newbury, is another with the Coventry Stakes as his target.
The quality is by no means limited to two-year-olds and none more so than Viren’s Army, winner of the Dee Stakes at Chester’s May meeting. Another of huge international appeal will be Time Warp, winner of his last five races for Sir Mark Prescott, most recently the Listed Prix Pontarme last week over a mile at Saint Cloud. Two interesting French entries are the winner and runner up in the recent Group 3 Prix Texanita, Ross Castle and Money Maker.
Other progressive performers of this generation include Listed placed Above N Beyond, and winners Ikerrin Road and Udontdodou.
As before, most Lots will be offered in absentia having undergone a full veterinary examination, with x-rays as well as being filmed for purchasers to view them on line. Alternatively all horses-in-training can be seen at their trainer’s yard by appointment.
The first section of the Sale is for Breeze-Up horses and the 21 entrants will breeze at 11am on Sunday 12 June at Kempton Park Racecourse and will be available to view at Kempton.
Goffs will continue to take supplementary/ wild card entries until 6th June and all additions can be viewed on www.goffs.com.
