  • 2018 Goresbridge Go For Gold sale

    It's November 12-13th, IIRC, and the catalogue is up. http://www.goresbridgegoforgold.com

    What I fail to understand why the photos of most of the horses are so very ugly and unflattering. You'd think they would at least try to photograph them in the best light possible.

    The videos are quite good; and I especially appreciate their giving a few seconds to a true gallop at the very end. It's a lovely eye candy way to spend a chilly evening.

    There are a few horses that I wouldn't mind having at home.

    I suppose it's more exciting to be there in person than to leaf through the catalog... but what a day we live in, where we can watch videos of horses continents away..

    I definitely have a type -- liked just about all the OBOS Quality horses... that "Unnamed" bay gelding by OBOS Quality looked very nice. I would have been seriously interested in that OBOS / Ghareeb horse, thank you. I once had a BNT tell me when picking out an UL (youngstock) horse you want one that moves like a cat ..

    This one -

    Oh... and love this one but I think maybe he ought to be a hunter --

    I think, I need to stop looking at horses -- like this one a lot too:
    http://www.goresbridgegoforgold.com/lot/gg058/

    Who am I kidding... I liked a lot of them but I am not a BNR.

    I have to say, for all the flack people give "American bred TBs", it sure is vindicating to see not one but several American TB stallions as actual sires of those top notch horses..

    I hope someone keeps that Kilpatrick Treasure colt intact...

    Ah -- we finally see some get of Pointilleste... exciting...

      As far as I've gotten isn't very far, but I really like EPA Murray. He doesn't have an extravagant jump, but he seems SO easy and smooth. He also has a lovely gallop.

      I'm not as impressed with the gallop on the OBOS Quality horses that I've seen so far; and there are a couple of other ones that, at least to my eye, have pounding, up and down, gallops.

        well, I'd be keeping them for ME -- not for letting some BNR have them! The only thing about that one OBOS Unnamed was I thought the way he held his tail was a bit funny.

        Good eye - I liked EP Murray too - even if he was grey..

          Eye candy for sure! A few that caught my eye -

          Lots 3, 6, 17, 18, 20, 37, 44 and 62. It's always fun to see what they went for in the end.

            It doesn't look like you can bid online. Presumably people who can't be there in person can use agents? Hmmmmmm.....

              If you are interested, contact them. They probably accept phone bidding. As a professional horse sales company they will have everything sorted, from bidding to onward transportation and export.

                I've been eyeing this girl since the list came out. I believe her lines tend to track more towards show-jumping, but I've loved the Quidam progeny I've sat on, and I have a soft spot for gritty bay mares. She may be a bit long, but I like the way she carries herself. Would love to see her come to the States.

                  You don't like the gallop on Luckaun Quality? Or OBOS O'Reilly? Asking because in terms of both speed at CCIs and longevity at the upper levels, these are two of the best horses in the game right now (at least, stateside - yes, they might not measure up in other ways to what Europe has to offer, but their gallops have never been the issue). Those are my markers for a good galloping horse - fast and holds up to the sport. What is it that you are concerned about?

                    Luckuan Quality is one of my favorite horses to watch...... which, I think, is why I really liked some of the others. OBOS Quality does stamp.
