Apple’s Jade, the winner of 11 Grade 1s during her career, will be offered in foal to Walk In The Park at the Goffs December National Hunt Sale which will begin a two-day run at Kildare Paddocks on December 9.

The winner of 15 races while in training, Apple’s Jade became the first ever mare to achieve 11 victories at the top-level including the 2017 Mares Hurdle at Cheltenham, last year’s Irish Champion Hurdle and three consecutive wins in the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle and Frank Ward Memorial Hurdle.

Gigginstown’s Racing Manager Eddie O’Leary said: “Apple’s Jade is a very special mare. She was the first mare ever to win 11 Grade 1 races, a feat now matched only by the great Enable, and we hope that she can mirror what she achieved on the track through her broodmare career.

“Gigginstown has never been about having a National Hunt breeding programme which is why she will be offered for sale at Goff in December. Apple’ Jade could be the ultimate blue hen for any serious National Hunt operation.”

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby added: “It is an honour for Goffs to offer a mare of the calibre of Apple’s Jade. On behalf of all the Goffs team, I would like to thank Gigginstown House Stud for entrusting this exceptional mare to us, which is a wonderful endorsement of our December Sale.”
