The fifth edition of the Goffs UK Yorton Sale featured a new record top price, with 2-year-old Brisky Dancer (Fr) selling to Ian Ferguson and Dai Walters for £165,000 on Thursday. The sale celebrated it's first Grade 1 alumi this year with Inthepocket (GB) (Blue Bresil {Fr}), who scored at Aintree's Grand National Festival.

Consigned as lot 5, the gelded son of No Risk At All (Fr) is a half-brother to Grade 3 winners Al Dancer (Fr) (Al Namix {Fr}) and Tzar's Dancer (Fr) (Tzar Rodney {Fr}). The previous record price was also set by a No Risk At All 2-year-old at £105,000, also purchased by Walters, in the sale's inaugural edition five years ago.

No Risk At All also sired the second highest price on the day, a 2-year-old filly (lot 18), who is a half-sister to listed winner Night Endeavour (Fr) (Shalaa {Ire}), with the pair being out of the listed winner Night Serenade (Ire) (Golan {Ire}).

A total of 36 horses sold, the same number as last year, for a clearance rate of 80% and a gross of £1,136,000. The average dropped a tick to £31,556, and the median decreased 7% to £28,000.

Yorton owner David Futter said, “This year marks the fifth year of this sale and it's great to see so many returning clients, along with a number of new faces. We take great pleasure in hosting this sale and we can't do it without the support of those who have attended and taken part in the auction–so to them we say a sincere thank you. We would also like to thank the Goffs team who have partnered with us since the launch of this sale in 2019.”

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent added, “We are delighted to break another record here at Yorton Farm and we are very proud to partner with David Futter and his team for this wonderfully unique event, where there were some lovely horses on offer today. We look forward to seeing them appear on the racecourse or in the sales ring for new connections and we hope to see another Grade 1 winner from this sale in the coming season.”
