Jul 3 2020  41 Godolphin mares set for Inglis Digital

An impressive draft of breeding stock to be offered by Godolphin – 37 broodmares and 4 race fillies – headlines what is shaping as another extremely strong catalogue for the Inglis Digital July (Early) Online Auction.

Following a successful offering of tried horses in the June (Early) online sale, Godolphin has returned with another appealing offering as it looks to trade more of its female stock through Inglis in the July 10-15 sale.

Headlining the draft is G2 Light Fingers Stakes winner and dual Stakes placegetter Obsequious (Lonhro), who has already produced three foals to race, all of which are winners.

Obsequious will be offered in foal to triple G1 winner Frosted.

Other highlights include:

• Stakes winners like Obsequious (Lonhro) and Zubbaya (Dubawi)

• Siblings to the likes of Furnaces, Hauraki, Kidnapped, Soul and Etymology among others

• A total of 28 pregnant mares, while 33 of the overall entries are aged five or younger

• Well-bred fillies and mares by the likes of Exceed And Excel, Medaglia d’Oro, Commands, Sebring, Bernardini, Canny Lad etc.

Godolphin has a proven record in selling top-producing broodmares with the likes of Sung (dam of Microphone), Erato (Lyre), Busking (Happy Clapper), Watchful (Sepoy), Hosiery (Long John), Fratianne (Tenley) and Disguise (Appearance) among others all selling at public auction in recent years.

Each of the 41 Godolphin horses in the July (Early) catalogue will be available for inspection by appointment at Godolphin’s Northwood Park property on Saturday July 11, Monday July 13 and Tuesday July 14 between 10am – 2pm (last parade 2.30pm).

Godolphin’s Racing and Bloodstock manager Jason Walsh said: “Prospective buyers can buy with confidence and from our 41-strong consignment there are certainly offerings to satisfy a great variety of breeding objectives, be it purchasing mares with racing upside in the short-term or accessing bloodlines for the long-term.

“We were very pleased with our racehorse sale with Inglis Digital in June and we look forward to presenting another Godolphin draft online in the coming weeks.’’

Inglis Digital manager Nick Melmeth noted his delight at the opportunity to sell another quality draft from Godolphin.

“The response to the racehorse draft was extraordinarily positive and we are very grateful for the ongoing support from Godolphin,’’ Melmeth said.

“There are some particularly well-credentialled mares in the draft and people can buy from Godolphin with confidence knowing that in many cases the pedigrees will still be working for them for generations to come.

“We have seen countless examples over the years of breeders securing life-changing mares from drafts such as these and hopefully we can reflect on more such instances from this draft in years to come.”

Entries remain open for the Inglis Digital July (Early) Online Auction, which is scheduled to run from July 10-15.

Entries close Wednesday July 8.
