Makin dispersal a massive boost for Irish bloodstock industry

10 September 2013

 One of the most significant events in international bloodstock this year will take place at Goffs in November, as the Kildare auction house has been selected to conduct the bloodstock dispersal of Paulyn Ltd on behalf of Paul Makin.

The outstanding Paulyn Dispersal of 25 blue blooded thoroughbreds will feature Group 1 Darley Irish Oaks winner Chicquita and the Galileo half-sister to Group 1 Investec Derby winner Pour Moi, alongside some stunning broodmares including Group 1 winner Fleeting Spirit in foal to Galileo, the Sadler’s Wells mare Song in foal to Frankel, and Group 1 Prix De L’Abbaye winner Gilt Edge Girl in foal to Redoute’s Choice. A Galileo filly out of Fleeting Spirit heads the yearlings on offer, while the world’s leading sire features strongly in the foal draft too along with Montjeu, Dansili and Oasis Dream. A number of horses in training will also be catalogued including the Grade 2 winner Chief Havoc. The Paulyn Dispersal will be consigned at Goffs by Bill Dwan’s The Castlebridge Consignment.

Commenting on the Paulyn Dispersal, Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby said:

“Rarely is such a superior collection of horses offered for sale at public auction. It is a privilege and an honour to be appointed as the Auction House of choice for The Paulyn Dispersal and we are absolutely thrilled that Paul Makin has put his faith in the Goffs Team and our unrivalled promotion and customer care.

As the announcement was made Paul Makin commented; “All of the Paulyn breeding stock is already in Ireland and by the time of the Sale all of our racing horses, some as yet unraced as 2yo’s will be on farms in Ireland, our Consignor is Irish and the Irish Government needs a boost. I love Ireland and I hope this dispersal, without reserves, will encourage other vendors to come along for the ride … we will make money …. and it should be good fun!”
