Group 1 boost for November Sale topper, Ghaiyyath
Ghaiyyath winning the Group 2 Prix d’Harcourt at ParisLongchamp
November Foal Sale graduate Ghaiyyath showed top class form over the weekend when romping home in the Group 1 Grosser Preis von Baden at Baden-Baden, Germany for Godolphin. The 2015 November Foal sale-topper was sold from The Castlebridge Consignment on behalf of his breeders, the Weld family’s Springbank Way Stud to John Ferguson for €1,100,000, the highest priced foal in Europe that year and the top priced colt foal ever in Ireland.

The weekend win is the first Group 1 win for the Dubawi colt, who has never been off the board in seven starts and race record includes a Group 2 win in the Prix d’Harcourt, and multiple Group 3 success.

Goffs November Foal Sale is the true market leader, especially in recent times, having sold Europe’s highest priced foal in four of the last five years. Enter online for this year’s sale www.goffs.com
