Frankel filly lights up Goffs

A daughter from the first crop of Frankel out of the champion racemare Alexander Goldrun lit up Goffs Orby Sale yesterday, selling to the China Horse Club for €1.7 million.

Surpassing last year's record price for the sale, the filly was one of the highlights of the day, and attracted bidding from Matt Coleman, Dermot Farrington, Amanda Skiffington, Ross Doyle and M V Magnier before Michael Wallace of the China Horse Club made the successful bid.

“She was very obvious. Frankel doesn’t need explaining to anyone and, being out of a mare like that, she’s a filly with great long-term value. When you couple the sire and the dam you’ve got something very elite. She’s for the China Horse Club and the policy across the board is to get through all the yearling sales in Europe and then we’ll sit down and decide what trainers the horses are going to,” said Wallace.
