The Goffs Autumn Yearling Sale holds the unique distinction of being the only yearling sale to take place in Ireland in 2020, and the catalogue for the 2020 edition is now online. Slated for Kildare Paddocks on Nov. 4-5, the sale will offer 461 yearlings, with 61 lots originally from the Goffs Sportsman's Sale that did not travel to the UK. Past graduates include group winners Laws of Indices (Ire) (Power {GB}) and Elysium (Ire) (Belardo {Ire}).

Many established sires are represented, among them Acclamation (GB), Australia (GB), Dandy Man (Ire), Exceed And Excel (Aus), Footstepsinthesand (GB), Holy Roman Emperor (Ire), Kodiac (GB), Make Believe (GB), New Approach (Ire), Oasis Dream (GB), Starspangledbanner (Aus), Teofilo (Ire) and Zoffany (Ire). Younger sires Gleneagles (Ire), Mehmas (Ire) and New Bay (GB) also have yearlings set to sell.

New Bay's lot 113 is a filly out of a daughter of European champion Banks Hill (GB) (Danehill) from Airlie Stud. Another highlight is an El Kabeir colt (lot 157) out of the SP Bee Eater (Ire) (Green Desert) from Eyrefield Lodge Stud, making him a half-sister to G3 Marble Hill S. winner Minaun (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}). Ringfort Stud brings a Kodiac colt (lot 211) who is out of a half-sister to Australian Group 1 winner Opinion (Ire) (Oasis Dream {GB}), German Group 3 winner Fox Hunt (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) and GSW Anam Allta (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}). Acclamation (GB) is the sire of lot 263, a colt out of an Arcano (Ire) half-sister to European champion sprinter Limato (Ire) (Tagula {Ire}) from the draft of Rathbarry Stud. Mount Coote Stud offers lot 287, a half-brother to MGSP Marksmanship (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) by Tamayuz (GB) out of SW Maroochydore (Ire) (Danehill).

“Due to the issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced the relocation to the UK of the major Irish yearling sales, the Goffs Autumn Sale will have the distinction of being the only dedicated yearling sale held in Ireland this year,” said Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby. “We commend it to potential purchasers who seek quality and value as the performances of its many winning graduates this season graphically illustrate that the Autumn Yearling Sale features both facets in abundance.  This year's catalogue contains some impressive commercial types which are further bolstered by a draft of Sportsman's yearlings making the sale a most attractive proposition.

“Together with our colleagues at Irish Thoroughbred Marketing, we look forward to welcoming buyers back to Kildare Paddocks, in person and online, for both the Autumn Yearling and Horses In Training Sales.”

In 2019, 387 yearlings grossed €1,693,600, with an average of €5,860 and a median of €4,000. Following the yearling portion of the Autumn Sale, Goffs will host the Autumn Horses-in-Training Sale on Nov. 5. Its catalogue will be online on Wednesday.
