Goresbridge Sales have already proved themselves adept at sourcing and selling top class fillies such as Barefoot Lady, Music Show and Zain Al Boldan but there are a number of high class colts and geldings that have also been through the ring at the Kilkenny based sale. Drunken Sailor (IRE) is one such example and the 6yo made light work of the opposition in the Listed JLT Aston Park Stakes at Newbury on Saturday. Trained by Luca Cumani, Drunken Sailor narrowly missed the cut for last years Melbourne Cup but looks an ideal candidate for the race. He was formerly trained in Ireland by Paul Flynn for whom he won a valuable handicap at the Galway Festival. He was bred by Cyril Kiernan and is by Tendulkar out of Ronni Pancake (by Mujadil). Goresbridge host their Breeze-Up sale this Thursday and Friday.
