€500,000, €480,000 etc for Camelot yearlings
It has been a superb year for Camelot on the racecourse and there was understandably huge interest in his yearlings on offer at this week’s Goffs Orby Sale.
Early into Wednesday’s trade, Godolphin representative Anthony Stroud went to €500,000 to see off Shawn Dugan for Camelot filly out of a half-sister to G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf winner Wrote (pictured).
“She was one of Sheikh Mohammed’s picks of the sale. She’s by a very good stallion and she’s probably made more than we expected, but she is very nice and in time she will hopefully make a good addition to the stud,” said Stroud.
Eamonn Reilly of BBA Ireland collected another choice Camelot filly out of the E Dubai mare Enharmonic, a half-sister to Distant Music, offered from Camas Park Stud. Reilly picked her up for €480,000 on behalf of Frank Fahy of Gerrardstown House Stud.
“She’s got the looks and she’s got the pedigree. We will bring her back to Gerrardstown and my son Donie will break her in and then a trainer for her will be decided on in due course. She’s a lovely filly,” said Fahy.
A great sale for Camelot also included prices of €280,000 (Peter & Ross Doyle BS), €260,000 (M V Magnier), €140,000 (Joseph O’Brien), €130,000 (Joseph O’Brien), €125,000 (Gaelic Bloodstock) etc.
