More six-figure Starspangledbanners

On Tuesday, a Starspangledbanner colt realised €100,000 and his foals continued to be in big demand on day three of the November Sale at Goffs on Wednesday.

Two more colts passed the six-figure mark for the outstanding sire.

First up was a grandson of the G1 1,000 Guineas runner-up Sundrop, who looks likely to be reoffered as a yearling next year after being bought by the O’Callaghan family’s Yeomanstown Stud for €120,000.

That price was passed by a Starspangledbanner colt out of the Lawman mare Welcome Springs bred by Peter Jones and consigned from Betaghstown Stud.

Brendan Holland was the successful buyer but only once bidding had reached €140,000.
