Quotes from the Goffs press release:
Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby: “Frankel fever is a global phenomenon at the moment and we are delighted to bring it back to London this year following the massive interest at our first London Sale. One of our goals in 2017 is to add a small selection of elite breeding stock to our superb catalogue of top class Horses-In-Training and this mare and filly foal absolutely fulfil that criteria. We are working on others to complement them alongside an exciting array of form horses, many of which will have Royal Ascot entries.”
Jeremy Brummitt on behalf of Heatherwold Stud: “One gets used to hearing the normal platitudes from vendors, but I think this filly speaks for herself. I can’t imagine anyone who sees her will be disappointed. It’s exciting to support the brave initiative of the London Sale. I think it’s very important for the profile of British and Irish breeding and which we should all support.”
