KODI BEAR’S FIRST YEARLINGS PROVE POPULAR
KODI BEAR made a strong start in the sales ring at Goffs UK, where his first yearlings sold for up to £90,000 at the Premier Yearling Sale.
Nine sold for an average of £40,222 (€46,747), having been bred from a fee of €10,000. Top billing went to Aughamore Stud’s Kodi Bear filly out of Midnight Martini, whom they had bought from Rathbarry Stud for €25,000 in February. Clive Cox, who trained Kodi Bear, went to £90,000 to secure the bay, who is a half-sister to three multiple winners.
Trainer Kevin Ryan and agent Stephen Hillen were keen on Kodi Bear’s first crop, buying a pair of colts at Goffs UK for £75,000 and £52,000 each. Blandford Bloodstock, Peter and Ross Doyle and Sackville Donald were others to sign for his first yearlings during the week.
