At the end of the Magic Millions 2yo breeze up sale on the Gold Coast the tried horses were auctioned off mostly unreserved there was only one passed in......  Godolphin was the largest vendor presenting their offerings in very good condition all for sale with any conditions attaching made known to prospective buyers ..... some had tie back procedures ineligible for scoping there were some other conditions like wind suckers or a roarer which didn't put the buyers off some went overseas but the names of the bidders weren't announced.
Gary Moore sold a couple of slow ones....for $35K and $25K

Godolphin's lot top price was $125K for Siam which last raced on 3Oct ....Barbeque brought $120K .....Catesby $100K.... as did Dissolute.... Souchez $95K .....Ghostly $80K.....Old North $62.5K .... Drachenfels sold to  Bjorn Baker the only buyer named he forked out $75K ....cheapest was $3K for an unraced Defer.

Looking at the results IMO many of these will be hard to place  I doubt there were any bargains...no Takeover Targets amongst this lot.

Because every trialed horse through the sales goes on to be a multiple group 1 winner  :shutup: :no:

Plenty of their tried horses go onto success for their new connections, I've black booked a number over time when they head to smaller establishments & are placed well.

I've black booked one from this sale that is going to a trainer who has a great record of winning first up with tried horses from elsewhere  ;)

A bit suprised at a couple but most of them had chances in Saturday class.

Any reason why it is at MM and not at Inglis down the road or commercial decision?

 Inglis sold some a couple of weeks back, mate
Suspect they have to spread the loyalty around

Jeunes, Godolphin's last big clearance was the Autumn Thoroughbred Sale at Oaklands in March so definitely no problems with Inglis....might be a 6 monthly thing.

Lloyd Williams tried the Inglis On-line auction recently at his most recent clearance.
Interesting watching the last 15 minutes or so.......where all the action is.

Thanks Nem.

It was just interesting as I am not sure how many Godolphin buy these days considering their rosters.

I could be a tad ignorant but can anyone remember any good ones who have gone on from a Williams or Godolphin cast off sale?

Subscribe or [Vengeance of Rain] comes to mind immediately from Williams although not sure he could be classified as a cast off.

Ciaran Maher picked up Saturday's St Ledger winner Big Blue for around $100k at a Godolphin dispersal 12 months or so ago.

Picked up over $300k in 3 starts.

Also it is a credit to Godolphin that their cast offs are so popular.

Their stable and horses are considered 'clean' and buyers can buy with a fair degree of confidence.

Some of the Williams sale horses look a bargain if you are prepared to take the risk. They are very lightly raced most of them.

Noumea won the Coleraine Cup the other week at it's 3rd run for new connections

Now with Musgrove so you'd suspect a jumps career awaits.

BRYNEICH which bolted in yesty at Doomben in a C3 over 1600m was having only it's fourth start for Chris Anderson after being sold by Godolphin for a reported $40K....which looks a bargain even allowing for sub standard money in QLD ...........................in 13 starts for the Godolphin stable it had 2 wins and 2 minor  placings..... and had reached its mark in the south .......possibly the lower grades in Brisbane might have helped it to regain form having last raced in NSW in June this year....by Lonhro it's partial to soft tracks...more wins in store.
