The sale will follow its proven format, with foals catalogued alphabetically by dam each day from Monday to Thursday inclusive. Every session holds appeal throughout with Monday and Thursday billed as equal, Tuesday raising the bar to an extent, and Wednesday traditionally attracting the most black-type pedigrees.

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “The European foal and breeding stock sales season will open in some style at Kildare Paddocks as we have assembled a truly world-class selection of foals for November that offers a superlative catalogue of strength, depth and diversity at every level and is simply unmissable as it caters to every requirement.

“November Foal graduates recorded more black-type success in Ireland, the UK, France, Japan, Italy and the US over the past year whilst pinhookers enjoyed multiple touches at the Orby Sale, and this year's catalogue is sure to attract every major buyer to Goffs next month whether they are seeking to race or to resell.

“On behalf of the passionate Goffs team, I extend our thanks to our vendors who have sent such quality to November as their first choice again this year.”
