The Goffs UK Silver Yearling Sale, which catalogued 175 yearlings, will be held at Doncaster on Aug. 29, the day after the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale ends. Two past graduates of the sale are American graded winners this year, in The Mackem Bullet (Ire) (Society Rock {Ire}) and Simply Breathless (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}), while Flying Thunder (GB) (Archipenko) won a Group 3 in Hong Kong.

One of the highlights of the sale is a filly by Fountain of Youth (Ire) out of the G3 Ballyogan S. heroine Golden Nun (GB) (Bishop of Cashel {GB}) as lot 593 from Bearstone Stud. Lot 473, a Dandy Man (Ire) colt produced by French Group3 victress Percolator (GB) (Kheleyf), hails from the draft of Harry Dutfield. Night of Thunder (Ire) is represented by a Bumble Mitchell-consigned half-brother to SW & GSP Green Rock (Fr) (Green Tune) (lot 484) and Abbeville Stud consigns lot 546, a son of Markaz (Ire) out of the Group 3 winner Questioning (Ire) (Elusive Quality).

In 2018, the sale grossed £1,385,400 from 136 yearlings sold, with an average of £10,187 and a median of £8,250. The top price was £40,000 for a son of Clodovil (Ire).

“Every year the Silver Sale produces some very smart horses and 2019 has been no different having enjoyed stakes winners in America, Hong Kong and Ireland thus far this season,” said Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams. “Each year we see more buyers stay after the Premier Sale for the Silver Sale the following day and last year was one of the best in terms of attendance with a number of major owners, trainers and agents onsite which led to vendors supporting the sale with a stronger selection this year.”
