Zoffany is Orby star

A beautifully-connected Zoffany filly, who sold for €240,000, was one of several by the Coolmore sire to make a splash at this week’s Goffs Orby Sale.

A sibling to the G1 Man O’War Stakes winner Zhukova (5m Fastnet Rock-Nightime, by Galileo), the yearling was bred by Springbank Way Stud and sold to Sonessa Ltd.

Other prices for Zoffany included €180,000 (DeBurgh Equine), €155,000 (Empire Bloodstock) and €130,000 (Blandford Bloodstock) etc.
