Lot 119 Mukhadram x Labisa consigned by Catridge Farm Stud purchased by Amanda Skiffington

THE first wave of yearlings by Shadwell’s exciting young sire MUKHADRAM were in hot demand at Doncaster this week during the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale.

A filly out of WHIRLY DANCER was the talk of the sales ground and the half-sister to Gr.2 Railway Stakes winner and Gr.1 runner-up BECKFORD did not disappoint selling to Eamonn Reilly of BBA Ireland on behalf of Maurice Regan – the owner of BECKFORD – for £200,000, the highest price paid for a yearling by a first-season sire at Doncaster this week.

“I loved the filly, there's no downside to her,” said Reilly after signing the docket.

On Tuesday, Amanda Skiffington signed at £70,000 for a filly by MUKHADRAM out of the winning HIGH CHAPARRAL mare LABISA.

“She was the nicest filly in the sale,” said Skiffington. “She’s strong and fast looking - a real professional.”

MUKHADRAM had six yearlings sell at Doncaster for an average of £58,500, an impressive return considering his stud fee of £7,000.

MUKHADRAM was a top-class performer for trainer William Haggas, carrying the colours of HH Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum to five victories with the biggest of those coming in the top-flight Coral-Eclipse at Sandown.
