€1.6 Million Frankel Colt Tops Orby Sale
A colt by Frankel claimed top honours on the final day of the Goffs Orby Sale in Ireland when purchased by agent Justin Casse on behalf of Zayat Stables for €1.6 million. Consigned by Eddie Irwin's Marlhill House Stud, the colt (lot 330) is out of the Xaar mare Belesta and hails from the family of Gr1 Prix de l'Opera winner We Are. International competition was fierce throughout an action packed day in the sales ring, with another of the stand-out lots including the Kingman colt out of an own sister to champion filly Immortal Verse (Lot 444). "Two millionaires by Galileo and Frankel were the clear highlights of another strong renewal of our flagship Orby Sale which has been well supported by a huge international cast of buyers who flocked to Co Kildare to buy some beautifully bred world class yearlings that had been sent to us by leading breeders," said Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby.
