Kodi Bear ex Arbeel colt after selling for €66,000 at Goffs

The first crop foals by Rathbarry Stud sire KODI BEAR made an excellent start in the sales ring, as they sold for up to 66,000 at the Goffs November Foal Sale.

The colt foal in question, Lot 130, was offered by Awbeg Stud and represented an excellent return on his stud fee of 10,000. Bought by Rathbarry Stud to be resold as a yearling, underbidders included shrewd pinhookers Tally-Ho Stud and Eddie O’Leary’s Lynn Lodge Stud.

Rathbarry’s Paul Cashman commented on the sale, “He’s just a lovely colt, very like his father, and he’s come from a very good farm. He’s got a lovely way of going, with a great temperament and presence. He’s a good advertisement for his sire and we were delighted to get him.”

Grange Hill Stud also had reason to celebrate when their Kodi Bear colt sold for 40,000 to Robert Levitt. Bred out of the Galileo mare Fancy Vivid, the bay colt is a half-brother to Group 3 Amethyst Stakes winner Zihba.

The popularity of Kodi Bear’s first crop continued at Tattersalls, where Howson and Houldsworth went to 40,000gns for a colt from McCracken Farms. A three-parts brother to promising juvenile Reconcile, the bay is a grandson of Park Hill Stakes third Songerie.
