Year-after-year the November
Foal Sale has proved a fruitful buying ground for pinhookers. Glenvale Stud’s

No Nay Never filly when South African-based Form Bloodstock signed the €160,000
docket at Goffs Orby Sale.
On the racecourse the calibre of foals at the November
Foal Sale was in evidence throughout 2018. Irish Derby hero Latrobe (IRE), Grade
1 Sword Dancer Stakes scorer Glorious Empire (IRE) and Grade 1 Natalma Stakes
winner Le Pelosa (IRE) were all sourced at the auction in recent years, with
