Siblings to 15 Grade 1 winners in 'biggest and best' Goffs Land Rover catalogue
Relations to Sir Gerhard, Paisley Park and Put The Kettle On up for grabs
Siblings to no less than 15 Grade 1 winners grace this year's Goffs Land Rover Sale catalogue, with Part 1 of the auction extended to two days to accommodate what that company describes as "the strongest collection of individuals and pedigrees to date for Goffs' flagship National Hunt Sale".
The three-day event is scheduled to take place at Kildare Paddocks on June 8-10.
The Land Rover Sale catalogue features 617 lots, with progeny by many of the best National Hunt sires around, such as Flemensfirth (17 lots), Getaway (29), Milan (36), Mount Nelson (31), Presenting (7), Shantou (16), Soldier Of Fortune (51) and Walk In The Park.
The biggest consignment comes from Peter Nolan Bloodstock, with 44 lots, while Rathmore Stud has 35 and Ballincurrig House Stud offer a 33-strong line-up.
Among the standouts on pedigree are:
Lot 9 - Sir Gerhard's half-brother by Fulbright

On the release of the Land Rover catalogue, Goffs group chief executive Henry Beeby said: "Following a decade of extraordinary growth, we decided earlier this year to expand Part 1 of the Land Rover Sale in response to the ever-increasing demand from vendors to send more of their best to Goffs.
"Our selection team of Gerry Hogan, Neil Walsh, Peter Molony and Kevin Ross have worked with those vendors to compile our biggest and best catalogue yet, with no dilution of the quality that has become the hallmark of Goffs Land Rover and allowed it to become the new best.
"We are excited to welcome buyers from home and abroad to Kildare Paddocks in June and to present even more of the best stores in Part 1, with a third day of quality in Part 2 completing a catalogue that will appeal to buyers at every level who can find all they need from just one visit to Goffs."
All lots offered across Parts 1 and 2 are eligible for the €100,000 Goffs Land Rover Bumper at next year's Punchestown Festival, with the unique addition of a new Land Rover Defender going to the winning vendor.
