Pointers Lead Goffs UK Autumn Sale


Music Drive | Goffs UK

Point-to-pointers proved popular during the one-day Goffs UK Autumn Sale on Thursday, with trade topped by Music Drive (Fr) (Muhtathir {GB}) (lot 129). Offered by Colin Bowe's Milestone Stables, the 4-year-old Music Drive won a point-to-point at Monksgrange on Sept. 26, and was picked up by Aidan O'Ryan and Gordon Elliott for £90,000.

At the close of trade, 113 horses sold (66%) from 170 offered for an aggregate of £1,014,800 that was up 29% on last year. The average jumped 83% to £8,981, while the median climbed 67% to £5,000.

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent said, “It is always difficult to make direct comparisons between horses in training sales as any trade will be determined by the strength of the catalogue and the quality of the horses on offer. With that in mind, we were delighted with the strength of the sale and, as ever, we are indebted to all the vendors who put their trust in the Goffs UK team. We would obviously wish all buyers the best of luck with their new purchases, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to Doncaster for the final time this year on Friday, Dec. 3.”
