Camelot Filly Sets The Bar At Goffs

Tuesday saw a daughter of Camelot become the highest-priced filly of the week so far at Goffs when selling to Michael Fitzpatrick’s Goodwill Bloodstock for €100,000.

Consigned by Chapel Lane Bloodstock as Lot 413, the late April foal is out of a three-parts sister to Group 1 performer Dolores, also known as the dam of Irish Leger victor Duncan. Paddy Fleming and Luke Barry were among those who provided stern competition to Fitzpatrick’s bids for the bay, who was bred from a covering fee of €30,000 in 2018.

Starspangledbanner commanded €15,000 at Castlehyde Stud in 2018 and the resulting foals repaid breeders on Tuesday, with the eight sold averaging at €50,313. Paca Paca Farm paid the top price of €110,000 for a bay colt from Collegelands Stud, while Glenvale Stud went to €90,000 to secure another colt from Rathbody Stud.

Zoffany celebrated a debut winner in the shape of Fantail on Tuesday and continued a fine day when Lynn Lodge Stud parted with €85,000 for a colt from The Castlebridge Consignment. A half-brother to the twice-placed Numberoneson (Camelot), the bay is a grandson of champion two-year-old filly Pas de Response.
