Adaay Colt Tops Doncaster Silver Yearling Sale

Today’s Goffs UK Silver Yearling Sale completed a successful three days of sales at Doncaster which saw 500 yearlings sold across the Premier and Silver Sales for a clearance rate of 82%.

Topping today’s Silver Sale was Oaks Farm Stables’ Adaay colt (Lot 540) which, following a timely update courtesy of his two-year-old own-brother Streamline who won his second race and placed at Listed level, sold to Gaelic Bloodstock for £45,000. Whitsbury Manor Stud, who stand first crop sire Adaay, were responsible for the day’s second top priced lot with a colt (Lot 602) by another of their sires, Due Diligence, selling to Clive Cox for £37,000.

Other lots to feature were Parks Farm Stud’s Dutch Art filly (Lot 529) which sold to George Mullins for £27,000 and Trickledown Stud’s Garswood filly (Lot 577) who sold to Federico Barberini, Ontoawinner and Karl Burke for £27,000.

Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams commented:

“The Silver Sale consistently produces Stakes winners and 2019 has seen it celebrate black-type winners in four countries thus far. Those results attracted a good number of UK and Irish trainers and agents as well as buyers from France, Italy, Poland and the Middle East.

"However, as we have witnessed with recent trends at this level, it was a buyer’s market and yearlings that did not meet the selective nature of trade struggled. That being said, the more desired lots were the subject of strong demand and sold accordingly.

“We would like to thank everyone who has supported the sale and we now look forward to holding our inaugural Goffs UK Yorton Sale at Yorton Farm on 12 September.”
