Million In Mind Dispersal Tops Goffs UK Spring Finale

Thursday's topper of Day 2 of the Goffs UK Spring Sale | Sarah Farnsworth

The Goffs UK Spring HIT/PTP Sale's annual Million In Mind Dispersal closed the second session at Doncaster with a flourish Thursday. A pair of six-figure plus lots led the action, led by Ioupy Collonges (Fr) (Kitkou {Fr}–Ine Collonges {Fr}, by Dom Alco) (Lot 675). The 5-year-old, who has won two of his four hurdle starts for Paul Nicholls, is expected to return to the Nicholls yard after being purchased by his trainer and Tom Malone.

The final session also offered a 25-lot partial dispersal from Dai Walters, which produced three of the day's four top lots, with the highlight coming with their Grade 2-placed mare Great Snow (Fr) (Great Pretender {Ire}) (Lot 682), selling to Highflyer Bloodstock and Opulence Thoroughbreds for £100,000.

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent said, “We are always aware that vendors have a choice, and these options have never been greater within the NH sector but, once again, the Goffs UK Spring Sale has proved to be the very best NH sale held every May with both sections comfortably outperforming all others. [Wednesday's] PTP day saw a top price of £215,000 which comfortably surpassed the competition, and our 15 six-figure transactions stand the closest scrutiny and is something of which we are incredibly proud.”

A total of 379 head sold this year for a gross of £8,923,450, up from £7,163,000 generated from 333 sold in 2022. Average also increased from £23,545 versus £21,511 one year ago. The two-day sale took the total six-figure sales to a record 17, with Thursday's clearance rate closing out at 92%.

Kent added, “We can therefore look back on a fantastic four days in Doncaster where a wonderful atmosphere extended from start to finish and again highlighted the enduring popularity of this end of season finale. A packed sales ring has witnessed some frantic bidding at every level of the market, and we look forward to seeing the next Corach Rambler, Constitution Hill, Good Land or You Wear It Well on the racecourse later this year.
