Ireland Breeding Day-1: $49.6k Needwood Blade Colt
In Ireland, County-Kildare-based Prosperous Stud paid the Day-1 top price of €31,000 (A$49,600) for a colt from the 1st crop of Shropshire-based 8YO stallion Needwood Blade (Pivotal-Finlaggan, by Be My Chief) during the opening session of the 7-day Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale (5 days of foals followed by 2 days of broodmares & fillies). The colt (out of Singspiel mare Singitta) was consigned from Nafferty Stud & comes from the immediate family of July Stakes winner Nevisian Lad.
