Goffs Day-1: $656,000 Rock Of Gibraltar Colt
Michael Jarvis paid €410,000 (A$656,000) for a Rock Of Gibraltar colt (out of Valiyar mare Biraya) reported racingpost.co.uk. The colt (consigned from Eddie Irwin's Marlhill House Stud) is a half-brother to 6 winners (including leading Hong Kong performer Bowman's Crossing). Jarvis commented: "I thought he was certainly in the top 2 in today's catalogue. He has been bought for a patient owner, but I would expect him to be a 2nd-half of the season 2YO."
