The top priced Lot at the Goffs yearling sales for National Defense was a gorgeous filly from Pier House Stud out of the Dansili Mare Thames Pagent who was knocked down to Ben Mc Elroy for £75,000 and will go into training with Wesley ward.
Prior to the sale speaking to Daithi Harvey from the TDN, Brendan Morrin commented “She’s probably one of the best-looking yearlings on the farm, he said. The National Stud actually took a video of her to use to promote the stallion and she’s an absolute queen to look at. We think Invincible Spirit is a very interesting sire of sires; you just have to look at how the likes of Kingman (GB) and Cable Bay (Ire) are doing and the Profitable (Ire) yearlings look nice too, so we thought National Defense was worth supporting. This filly looks fast and there has been very little prepping on her; she just looks a natural racehorse.”
We look forward to seeing this filly in 2021 !
