New British Record At Doncaster Spring Store Sale Opener

Session-topping lot 75 | Goffs UK

A new British record was established during the first of two sessions of the Doncaster Spring Store Sale when Goldford Stud's filly by Blue Bresil (Fr) was hammered down for £210,000. The daughter of Petticoat Tails surpassed the previous mark of £200,000 set at this same event 12 months ago. The Astons' Goldford Stud have accounted for the top seller at the Spring Store Sale no fewer than 10 times, including five years consecutively from 1997-2001. It was an especially poignant transaction for the Astons in light of the passing of Richard Aston late last month and the celebration of life in his honour held at Goldford Stud last week.

A total of 99 horses changed hands for turnover of £2,905,300. The average price of £29,346 represented a 6% decline from 2022, while the median of £25,000 dropped by 4%.

The second and final session of the sale commences Tuesday at 11am.
