The Jim Bolger-trained three-year-old filly Sometimesadiamond, winner of the Listed Yeomanstown Stud Irish EBF Stakes at Naas last week, has been added to the Goffs UK Goodwood Sale.

The auction will be held at Goodwood on Wednesday evening after racing, at 6.30pm.

The winner of two of her nine career starts, Sometimesadiamond - who will go under the hammer as lot 13 - won on her debut and finished third in the Group 3 Flame Of Tara Stakes at two.

This season she ran fourth in the Group 3 1,000 Guineas Trial Stakes and third in the Listed Owenstown Stud Stakes, before claiming her Listed victory last Wednesday by beating the Irish 1,000 Guineas second Could It Be Love.

The Racing Post commented after her most recent victory: "She clearly has plenty of speed but stamina was needed too to see this out and she clearly has enough of that.

"This shows that 6f is her trip, but she had obviously shown earlier that she stays further and she could end up being one of the more versatile horses around at this level.”

Sometimesadiamond is by Vocalised, sire of National Stakes winner Verbal Dexterity, out of the winning mare Something Graceful, a daughter of Galileo and Grade 2 winner Que Puntual and thus a half-sister to the Group 3 winner Oceanographer.

The Goodwood Sale will offer 13 lots, which include high-end horses in training, broodmares and a lifetime breeding right in the exciting young sire Showcasing.
