Group 2 success and a third consecutive black-type win declared September Yearling Sale graduate SOFFIA as one of the leading sprinters this season when Eddie Lynam's filly landed the Group 2 Friarstown Stud Sapphire Stakes at the Curragh yesterday. The daughter of Kyllachy produced one of the most impressive performances of the season when quickening away from her fellow September Yearling Sale graduate and ultra-consistent El Astronaute.
Owned by Lady O'Reilly, SOFFIA was sold at the 2016 September Yearling Sale by Grove Stud on behalf of Amy Lynam for €52,000 to BBA Ireland.
In the Czech Republic, FALCON BABY headed a 1-2 for the September Yearling Sale when winning the Listed 74. Oaks Holdingu Rabbit CZ (Czech Oaks) ahead of fellow September Yearling Sale graduate Gold Memory. FALCON BABY, trained by Helena Vocaskova and owned by 3 Hearts, was sold at the 2017 September Yearling Sale by Mount Coote Stud to Janda Bloodstock for €15,000.
The catalogue for the September Yearling Sale and Part II 2019 will be online later today and available in hard copy from Friday 26 July.
