In the Irish auction ring, Curragh trainer Paul Deegan paid top price of €40,000 (A$76,000) for a Green Desert colt (out of unraced Seeking The Gold mare Alshamatry) during the closing yearling session at the 2-day Goffs Autumn Yearling Sale. The colt was consigned from Derrinstown Stud by Shadwell Estate & Deegan told racingpost.co.uk: "I don't know who he is for yet, but I'm a huge fan of the sire & this horse comes from an excellent pedigree."
