Tuesday saw Goff's Orby sale kick off in style, with buyers flying in from all over the world to purchase some of Ireland's finest youngsters. Day One saw a clearence rate of 84% and increases in average (€109,877 {+8%}), turnover and median (€70,000 {+8%}) compared with the first day last year, with the most expensive purchase of the day being lot 74, a lovely Galileo filly consigned by owners of ours 'Ballylinch Stud', which went the way of MV Magnier for €900,000. Ballylinch also sold Wild Acclaims half brother by Shamardal lot 368 for 170,000 today. Frankel's prodigeny continue to frank his worth at stud with the result being another stand out lot on day one, a colt that sold to BBA Ireland at €750,000.

Whilst those figures are impressive, they're simply unattainable for the average person, so we continue to stick to the game plan, which has always been to buy smart, acquiring horses with winning potential at relatively 'cheap' prices. One filly who will be coming home with us can already be viewed here  while we await decent weather at home (today it is blowing a gale) to take photos to best show off the rest, but they will be on the website very soon. 

For those that like to see a little from behind the scenes at Sun Hill....

 Fun at Sun Hill - watch horses working + a couple of spills! .
