$35,000 pinhook sells for €150,000 at Goresbridge
More congratulations to Johnny Collins of Brown Island Stables, whose First Defence colt realised €150,000 at the Goresbridge Breeze-up Sale in Ireland on Friday.
The colt was purchased for just $35,000 through Chad Schumer at the 2015 Keeneland September Sale.
Peter and Ross Doyle signed the ticket on the colt, who was the only purchase made on the day by Al Shaqab Racing.
His sale capped an excellent week for the Collins – Schumer axis, which were also to the fore at Arqana in Deauville, France, thanks to a daughter of Lonhro who sold for €130,000 to Alex Elliott. She was bought through Chad for just $20,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Yearling Sale. Collins also sold an Arch colt for €100,000 to Stephen Hillen – he cost just $25,000.
