Frankel filly breaks Irish record

Frankel - famous dam

A filly by the brilliant Frankel out of the 2007 English and Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Finsceal Beo has been sold for €1.8 million at Goffs November Sale, a record for a foal at public auction in Ireland.

The foal from Frankel’s first crop was sent from the Al-Eile Stud in Kilgobnet, Dungarvan and bought by Dermot Farrington Bloodstock, of Naas, on behalf of a ‘new Irish client’.

Her sale brings the total generated by Finsceal Beo’s progeny at auction to €5.45m.

She is the fifth foal out of her dam, who was trained by Jim Bolger.

Her third foal, Ol’ Man River, is the pick of the crop so far. Bought for a record €2.85 million as a yearling at Goffs last year, the Montjeu colt was a smooth winner of his debut before capturing the Group Two Beresford Stakes at the Curragh and is a big Classic hope for the Aidan O’Brien stable in 2015.
