Goffs Land Rover Sale Concludes In Bullish Fashion


Lot 594 was one of three to reach €50,000 | Goffs

Demand was strong for Part II of the Goffs Land Rover Sale on Thursday, with the clearance rate rising to 82% for 174 sold from 213 offered. The gross also improved to €3,109,500 (+59%). The average and median came in at €17,871 (+8%) and €16,000 (+7%), respectively.

Three lots shared honours for the joint-highest price of €50,000, and the first horse to reach that amount was lot 594. The Jet Away (GB) gelding, out of a full-sister to Grade 2 hurdle winner and Grade 1 runner-up Emitom (Ire) (Gold Well {GB}), was offered by Tullycanna Stables and found a new home with Milestone Bloodstock.

Fillies by Workforce (GB) (lot 644) and Doyen (Ire) (lot 645) reached that amount later in the day. The former, already half-sister to a winning point-to-pointer, was part of the Kellsgrange Stud draft and sold to Charlie and Francesca Poste. Her dam is a full-sister to the Grade 1-placed Rindoon (Ire) (Beneficial {GB}).

Boardsmill Stud consigned lot 645, who is out of the Grade 3-placed Benny's Fagartha (Ire) (Beneficial {GB}). Baltimore Stables bought the April-foaled bay.

“With so many sales these days one of the joys of the Goffs Land Rover Sale is the need for only one trip to buy classy stores at all levels of the market,” said Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby. “That allows so many of our important UK buyers to take in both Part 1 and Part 2 incorporating 715 lots but only do battle with the airport once. In today's world that is ever more important.

“Today continued the positive trends of the Part 1 Sale with increases in the key metrics and, once again, we are indebted to every vendor and each purchaser for their trust and support. Whilst trade is obviously at a lower level than Part 1 there is no doubt that some future stars were sold today and we look forward to seeing Land Rover graduates performing at all the big meetings in the coming seasons.

“The last three days have concluded a vibrant NH stores sales season for Goffs with strength, depth and consistency at Doncaster Spring and Goffs Land Rover with both sales posting impressive results following massive support from breeders on both sides of the Irish Sea. We are grateful for every lot and each bid, and remain committed to providing the best possible service to the industry as our share of the market continues to grow.

“As well as enjoying a highly satisfactory few days of business one of the most wonderful aspects of the whole week was the freedom to do business without a hint of the dreaded restrictions, temperature checks, masks or the like. And that made it all feel even better.”
