Godolphin Draft a Highlight for Inglis Digital

Media Release - Monday June 1

Powerhouse racing and breeding operation Godolphin will offer an unreserved draft of 18 horses as part of the Inglis Digital June (Early) Online Auction.

In what is an exciting opportunity for buyers, the Godolphin consignment ranges from seasoned veterans to unraced 2YOs and a vast range of up-and-coming 3YOs.

Highlights of the draft include Saturday’s impressive Rosehill winner Esperance (Bernardini), regally bred The Driller (Sea The Stars x Shamal Wind) who was unlucky not to have made it two successive wins at Geelong last Friday, recent Kembla Grange winner Golwen (Lonhro), Randwick winner Secretively (Dawn Approach) and Flensburg (Reset), who broke his maiden at Ballarat on Sunday.

A winner at Rosehill on Saturday,  Esperance is for sale.

In total 15 of the 18 are lightly raced 3YOs – four of which are fillies - by the likes of Exceed And Excel, Medaglia d’Oro, Shooting To Win, Reset, Animal Kingdom and Helmet etc.

The entire draft will be available for inspection by appointment only at Riverside Stables from 2pm Monday, June 8.

To book an inspection time, please contact Brett Gilding – brett.gilding@inglis.com.au or 0401 300 280.

Godolphin has provided the horse’s current status, disclosed any vices, height and weight when in training, any bonus schemes the gallopers are eligible for, a veterinary report and any recent gear changes.
