Lot 666: Ulysses ex Fools In Love colt fetched €175,000
ULYSSES (Galileo), a dual Group 1 winner with one of the classiest pedigrees in the stud book, was back in the limelight on Day 3 at the Goffs November Foal Sale as two of his sons sold for six-figure sums.
Lot 666, a precocious type out of the Stakes-placed mare FOOLS IN LOVE, became the most expensive progeny of his sire when knocked down to Jamie Railton for €175,000. Sold through The Castlebridge Consignment, the colt is a half-brother to SEAHENGE (Scat Daddy), who was trained by Aidan O’Brien to win the Group 2 Champagne Stakes.
Lot 581: Ulysses ex Troarn colt made €150,000
Earlier in the day Lot 581, the first foal out of the Stakes-placed mare TROARN, who is a full-sister to European Champion ALMANZOR, proved a fantastic advertisement for his sire’s first-crop of foals. In the end a determined effort from Yeomanstown Stud was enough to see off Coolmore, amongst other interested parties, and secure the colt for €150,000.
In total Ulysses had four foals sell at Goffs, returning an average of €93,750. Ulysses has 17 foals catalogued for the Tattersalls December Foal Sale and two foals at the Araqana Breeding Stock Sale.
Ulysses stands at Cheveley Park Stud and will be available to breeders in 2020 for a fee of £15,000 (1st Oct, SLF).
