Mike Grech said he was ‘absolutely ecstatic’ after the five-year-old was sold for £620,000 as part of a sale to mark the end of his partnership with Stuart Parkin
The record price for a jumps horse sold at auction has been shattered, with Interconnected being knocked down for £620,000 at Goffs’ sale in Doncaster. Casual followers of the sport will be scratching their heads at the name, as the five-year-old has yet to win a race under rules and is all unexposed potential.
Interconnected was one of 28 horses sold to dissolve the Mike Grech and Stuart Parkin partnership, with the two owners having become frustrated by a lack of high-level success after a major investment over several years. They paid £220,000 for Interconnected a year ago after he won a point-to-point.
