Daniel Wildenstein died in 2001 but the stable remained in operation and later hit familiar Group 1 heights through Aquarelliste, Beauty Parlour, Planteur and Westerner among others.
Unsurprisingly, the first round of horses - 17 yearlings and 41 horses in training - attracted a range of powerful investors, among them John Ferguson, who signed at €1.4 million for the Dubawi - Beauty Parlour colt. Ferguson came out on top following a protracted battle with representatives of Peter Brant's White Birch Farm, which ended up signing for four horses worth €1.32 million. Alan Quartucci of the New York-based Northshore Bloodstock was also active, signing for €560,000 worth of stock, as was Eugenio Colombo.
In all, 57 horses changed hands at an average of €102,789.
Brant was once a familiar and influential industry figure - at one time he was a principal of Fasig-Tipton; he campaigned that brilliant filly Triptych for part of her career; he was an instrumental figure in the syndicate that moved Mr Prospector from Florida to Claiborne Farm; he bred and owned Gulch and then bred one of his best sons, Thunder Gulch - and so his return to the sport is naturally welcome.
He also made his presence felt at the recent Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November Sale, where he paid $1.1 million for Grade 2 winner Paid Up Subscriber, and at Keeneland, where he went to $975,000 for a Tapit weanling while assisted by Eugenio Colombo.
Brant is expected to be at Goffs in person for the final draft of Wildenstein horses.
Today's group comprises of 20 foals. Another 27 mares and two fillies in training are set to sell tomorrow.
The draft kicks off with 1183, a filly by Juddmonte’s Kentucky-based Mizzen Mast who is the second foal out of the Listed-placed Galateia, herself a daughter of Group 3 winner Gagnoa.
Other highlights include:
1187) b c Dansili - Pacifim Rim: the second foal out of Prix de Malleret heroine Pacific Rim
1189) b f Invincible Spirit - Peinture Rare: a half-sister to a winner, she is out of a Group 2-winning half-sister to Peintre Celebre
1198) b c Le Havre - Altamira: the half-sister to Prix du Moulin runner-up Akatea, now running in the US for Joseph Allen. Alongside Peter Brant, Allen was an extremely prominent feature in the success of the first draft of horses
1201) b f Dansili - Beauty Parlour: the second foal out of 2012 Poule d’Essai des Pouliches heroine Beauty Parlour, a rare European representative of Deep Impact from the family of legendary Australian galloper Might And Power. The mare’s first foal, a Dubawi colt, realised €1.4 million here to John Ferguson at the Goffs Orby Sale.
"The filly is a very good walker and she's correct," said Stauffenberg, a regular high end pinhooker at this sale. "I like the family - I actually tried to buy Incahoots [under the second dam] last year but she was too dear [Incahoots topped the first day of last year's Tattersalls December Mares Sale when sold for €450,000 to Wertheimer et Frere and subsequently won a Listed race]. It's a very good family - a particularly good filly family with a lot of speed."
"He's by an incredibly exciting freshman stallion," said Collins. "He was a four-time Group 1 winner."We have a number of Kingman foals on the stud and we're impressed with them. This colt is a nice, racy type with a good pedigree and we thought he would complement what we have at home. Sheikh Hamdan was very keen to have him."
"We bought a Siyouni filly in August and sent him a mare this year," said Collins. "We've pencilled in a few to send to him next year. He's a very exciting young stallion and this was just a gorgeous filly with the walk to go with it."With that pedigree she will make a lovely addition to the broodmare band at some stage."
"That is the word that has been used as much as any when describing the foal market this week. Indeed, the difference between the start and end of the sale has been palpable as has been the atmosphere depending on the perceived commerciality of each foal as they entered the sales ring. So we have enjoyed a vibrant trade for the most sought after with several multiple bidder duels and some significant prices at the top of the market headed, of course, by the final 17 lots that made up the foal section of the Wildenstein Stables Ltd Dispersal that was topped by the daughter of Siyouni at €775,000.
"However just a couple of days ago it was a very different picture with a contracted market and a drop in figures, most notably the clearance rates. Indeed, the warning signs at the foal sales last autumn have proved prophetic and there should be no shying away from the fact that it was very tough for many breeders as the market spoke loud and clear.
"The 2017 yearling market is the goal for the majority of buyers and they will have had this year’s sales firmly in their mind as they made their assessments. They will have recalled a mighty Orby Sale full of international buyers battling it out for the cream of the crop. Those foals that look likely to make that grade were keenly sought and we look forward to seeing many of them back here next year as they head to their new homes for the winter. However at some other yearling sales here and elsewhere it was tougher going and far more selective, so it is no surprise to see the most likely candidates for those sales proving less popular this week. Maybe that is always the case but it certainly appeared starker the further back in the week you look.
"Of course the Goffs November Foal Sale has truly been one of the success stories of recent years with a simply storming trade over the last five years. Nothing can rise forever and there has quite clearly been a readjustment over the last five days, notwithstanding several special moments today.
"Further reflection will no doubt take place over the winter but for now we immediately turn our attention to a very attractive selection of Breeding Stock over the next two days."
