Goffs Weanlings Day-4: $320k Dylan Thomas Colt

Monday, 23rd November 2009

Meanwhile Goffs's Japanese representative Takashi Kodama (acting on behalf of leading Japanese trainer Hideyuki Mori) paid top price of €200,000 (A$320,000) for a colt from the 1st-crop of 6-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler & former European Horse-Of-The-Year Dylan Thomas (out of Sadler’s Wells mare In My Dreams) during the final session at the 4-day Goffs November Foal Sale. The colt (whose dam In My Dreams is a half-sister to 7-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler & another former European Horse-Of-The-Year Rock Of Gibraltar) was consigned from Carriganog Stud. Kodama told racingpost.com: “He will go back to Japan eventually. He's a very nice & well-bred colt & Rock Of Gibraltar stood for a season in Japan & was very popular with Japanese breeders.”
