Goffs 2YOs: $230k Invincible Spirit Filly
In England, bloodstock agent Anthony Stroud (acting for The Searchers partnership, which includes British Horseracing Authority chairman Paul Roy, Andy Stewart, Martin Myers, Trevor Harris & Kevan Watts) out-bid fellow agent Dermot Farrington & paid top price of £105,000 (A$230,000) for a 2YO filly by former Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (out of Air Express mare Glamorous Air) at the 1-day Goffs 2YO Breeze-Up Sale at Kempton Park racecourse. The filly (already named Glamorous Spirit) was consigned from Bansha House Stables & Stroud told racingpost.co.uk: "She looked a very speedy filly & will be going to Jeremy Noseda (to train). We bought 4 last year at the breeze-ups & came up with 2 very nice ones & we'll try & do the same again this time around." The filly was previously bought for €50,000 (A$80,000) as a yearling in Rome by vendor Con Marnane.
