Buyers at today’s sixth renewal of the Goffs London Sale in association with QIPCO could be heading straight for Royal Ascot as fourteen horses in training will be offered with engagements at the Royal meeting.
The British Horseracing Authority will work with the new owners of any horse purchased with a Royal Ascot engagement to process the change of ownership in time for the horse to race in the new owner’s colours.
One of the three mares on offer is Just Sensual, a Gr 1 winner and Champion 3yo filly in South Africa, in foal to Frankel.
She raced in the Jooste Mayfair Speculators silks and won the Cape Fillies Guineas for Joey Ramsden.
Klawervlei Stud bred Just Sensual who is by Dynasty out of the Gr1 Golden Slipper winner Consensual (by Camden Park), who raced out of the Mike Bass yard and was SA’s 2008 Champion 2yo filly.
Just Sensual cost R2 million on the Cape Premier Yearling Sale. She was transferred to the ownership of Miss S Grentell in January 2018.
