“The Doncaster Premier Yearling Sale is enjoying another superb year with the highlight thus far being the group winning treble at this year’s Royal Ascot meeting,” said Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams. “In addition, the Premier & Silver Yearling Sales are the world’s only yearling sales to have sold winners of one of the feature races of the Royal meeting, the G1 Commonwealth Cup, a race won by Premier graduate Advertise this season. The 2019 Premier catalogue shapes as one with the firepower to continue this fine record and we look forward to welcoming an international audience to Doncaster on Aug. 27-28.”
