Sires represented include Authorized (Ire), Blue Bresil (Fr), Crystal Ocean (GB), Doctor Dino (Fr), Goliath Du Berlais (Fr), Jew St Eloi (Fr), Kapgarde (Fr), Karaktar (Ire), Martinborough (Jpn), Masked Marvel (GB), Muhtathir (GB), No Risk At All (Fr), Tunis (Fr), Walk In The Park (Ire) and Zarak (Fr).

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “The spectacular rise of the Arkle Sale has seen the majority share of the select store horse market presented to buyers at Goffs each June, and this year is no different. Key to the sale's success has been the support of our vendors who send such quality to Goffs in ever-increasing numbers, and our inspection team, led by Gerry Hogan, Neil Walsh, Peter Molony, Kevin Ross and Harry Fowler, have worked with those vendors to handpick a catalogue of real athletes for Arkle 2024.

“The Arkle Sale is the headline act in a vibrant new era for National Hunt at Goffs on both sides of the Irish sea, which is also evident across the foal, breeding stock and point-to-point categories.  It is a huge point of pride for the entire team, and we are committed to improving all the time and not resting on tradition.  A destination sale for so many owners and trainers, the Arkle atmosphere is like nowhere else, and, together with our luxury brand partner Defender, we look forward to welcoming everyone to Kildare Paddocks for this year's Arkle Sale for unrivalled quality along with some new flourishes to enhance the buyer experience.”
