Petit Mouchoir and Sub Lieutenant among Gigginstown draft at September Sale
Goffs UK also offering dispersal from Trevor Hemmings
A 22-strong dispersal from Gigginstown House Stud featuring such well-known names as Petit Mouchoir and Sub Lieutenant will form plenty of interest in the upcoming Goffs UK September HIT Sale.
The recently-released catalogue for the September 15 event is headed by the dispersal from Trevor Hemmings’ Gleadhill House Stud, with the prominent National Hunt owner taking the step of dramatically trimming his string and putting 56 of them in the ring at Doncaster without reserves.
Popular grey Petit Mouchoir's biggest win came in the 2017 Irish Champion Hurdle and he has continued to perform with credit, most recently collecting third in the Galway Hurdle.
His Henry de Bromhead stablemate Sub Lieutenant is a half-brother to Gold Cup hero Lord Windermere and twice a winner at graded level over fences. They are joined by recent Grade 2 Killarney winner Mortal, former Grade 1 novice Dortmund Park, Royal Bond scorer Mengli Khan and a few further lesser lights.
The 300-strong catalogue consists of 268 horses in training and 32 National Hunt stores – the latter in their own session.
Ten of the stores are from Gleadhill as well as some horses that were catalogued in the Goffs Land Rover Sale. Sires with stores on offer include Blue Bresil, Camelot, Cloudings, Black Sam Bellamy, Fame And Glory, Kayf Tara, Milan, Oscar, Saddler Maker, Scorpion, Telescope, Westerner etc.
The sale will also offer a handful of young form horses that will be presale vetted including debut point winner Ballela and bumper winner Osprey Call.
Goffs UK managing director Tim Kent said: "We have been privileged to offer some outstanding dispersals in the past, with Gigginstown being an annual highlight, and the Gleadhill House Stud dispersal is another big drawcard. We are very grateful to Mr Hemmings for choosing Goffs UK to offer his horses and we look forward to this exciting sale.
“We also have strong drafts from major owners and trainers such as Gordon Elliott and Godolphin, the latter whose regular Doncaster drafts unearthed further stakes winners this season in Glen Shiel and Make A Challenge.
"The store session is a new addition to the sale this year and it has attracted some very nice types so we have plenty to look forward to and we are confident the catalogue will hold appeal with a wide range of buyers."
