2020 - IN HOT PURSUIT OF FUTURE STARS
Day 1 of the Premier Goffs UK sale set the trend for the sale of yearlings by Acclamation in 2020 and they were in demand by some of the shrewdest judges in the Bloodstock Industry.
‘Acclamation was King of the first day @GoffsUK Premier Sale; 4 of the top 10 lots were by @RathbarryStud Leading Sire, 3 more by his sons Dark Angel and Memhas’. Ailsing Crowe 1st Sept. on Twitter.
Peter and Ross Doyle, staunch supporters of Acclamation, signed for no less than 4 yearlings by Acclamation in 2020. Following the purchase of their first Acclamation yearling in 2020, Ross Doyle said ‘We’ve had some very good Acclamations down the years; Mehmas, Ventura Tormenta, Harbour Watch. He’s been a very good sire for our clients and the Hannons’.

2018 - THE SIX MILLION GUINEA FILLY
MARSHA duly smashed the European record when Coolmore’s MV Magnier outgunned John Gosden at six million guineas at the Tattersalls December Mares Sale in Newmarket. Magnier was in no mood to be denied... “She’s going to Galileo” confirmed Magnier. “She’s one of the best sprinters around and she has a lovely presence about her”.
