Straightline Bloodstock to Hold Dispersal at Doncaster December Sale

Successful owner Richard Gilbert, whose horses run under the ownership of Straightline Bloodstock, will offer a 17-lot dispersal at the upcoming Goffs UK December HIT Sale at Doncaster on Friday 3 December.

The 17-lot dispersal will offer all lots without reserve and will feature smart, proven performers, younger horses who have made promising starts to their racing careers and unraced stock. Some of the highlights include:

  • Sextant (6YO G by Sea The Stars), a six-time winner whose victories include the Listed Stand Cup Stakes. He is flat rated 100 and has also had two starts over hurdles for a win and a third placing.
  • Arthurs Seat (4YO G by Champs Elysees) who has made a promising start to his career with his five starts netting two bumper wins and three second placings – his most recent on his hurdle debut at Musselburgh on 30 October.
  • Kilbarry Leader (5YO M by Leading Light), the winner of her debut P2P at Dromahane in October last year who was then purchased for £75,000 at the Goffs UK November P2P Sale.
  • Alright Sunshine (6YO G by Casamento), the winner of eight races, his most recent at Hamilton in May, and flat rated 99.
  • Prince Kayf (7YO G by Kayf Tara), lightly raced and the winner of two races over hurdles, his most recent coming on his last start at Newcastle in March.
  • Let Me Be (5YO G by Gale Force Ten), the winner of nine races, his most recent at Ayr in September.
  • Platinum Card (6YO G by Golden Lariat), the winner of four races, his most recent at Hamilton in August, and flat rated 99.

The dispersal will also offer the last start winner Hear Me Out, winning 2YO Tricky Business, the unraced Ain't No Sunshine, a 5YO gelding by Shantou who cost €75,000 at the Goffs Land Rover Sale, and an unraced 2YO by Time Test who was purchased at the Breeze Up Sales.

Richard Gilbert commented on his Doncaster December Sale Straightline Bloodstock Dispersal:

“We have had a great time racing and we love our horses but sadly we feel it is time to refocus our attention. The last 18 months have been very challenging and we feel we need to concentrate more on the business so we will be offering all our horses in an unreserved dispersal.

“There are some lovely horses on offer, horses like Sextant, Alright Sunshine, Platinum Card etc. have given us a lot of fun and have won 18 races between them. We have a strong selection of unraced horses and Kilbarry Leader is one that looks very promising, she has shown a lot at home, so the dispersal presents some exciting and genuine opportunities for others to race and enjoy.”

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:

“The addition of the Straightline Bloodstock Dispersal is a great boost for our Doncaster December Sale and we look forward to offering the draft on behalf of Richard. As we have seen time and again with dispersals, they offer genuine opportunities for buyers and the draft has a nice balance of proven and promising horses.”
