Goffs Orby Day-1: 400K For Exceed And Excel Colt
Meanwhile, the only son of Australian sire Exceed And Excel to be offered at this year's Goffs Orby Yearling Sale sold to top Newmarket trainer Roger Varian for €400,000. Consigned by Luca Somaini's Deer Forest Stud, the colt is out of the Italian Gr1 winner Aoife Alainn (Dr Fong). "He's got size, scope and strength," said Varian. "The dam was a very good racemare and the sire gets lots of fast, precocious types. This colt looks a racehorse. He's been bought for a client."
