The Glancing Queen Tops Day 1 of Doncaster January Sale

The opening day of today’s Goffs UK January Sale at Doncaster saw a full day of NH mares and foals offered which set a new record top price for a foal at the sale along with the Grade 2 winning mare The Glancing Queen achieving a top price of £150,000.

Offered late in the day as part of the breeding stock session by Mill House Stud, The Glancing Queen (Lot 210) shaped as a highly attractive breeding opportunity given her exploits on the track, headed by her victory in the Grade 2 Goffs Nickel Coin Bumper at Aintree’s Grand National Festival, and was subject to bids from multiple parties around the ring before being sold to Simon Davies’ Dahlbury for £150,000.

Another mare to feature was the multiple Stakes winner mare Cap Soleil (Lot 221) who was offered in foal to Crystal Ocean by Throckmorton Court Stud and was purchased by Rathmore Stud for £75,000.

The NH foal session realised a new record top price with Alne Park Stud’s Walk In The Park half-brother to the Grade 2 winner Nube Negra (Lot 25) selling to Gerry Aherne for £75,000. Other foals to feature included Yorton Farm’s Blue Bresil colt (Lot 146) which sold to J & J Aisbitt/Prospect Stables for £52,000, and Goldford Stud’s Nathaniel colt out of the Grade 2 placed mare Petticoat Tails (Lot 51) which was knocked down to Abbeylands Farm for £50,000.

The second and final session of the Doncaster January Sale will commence tomorrow from 10am with a session of horses-in-training and pointers. Tomorrow’s session will also feature four lots which are eligible to win the new £100,000 January Sale Bonus – more information here.
