Sparkling Statistics As Goffs Land Rover Part I Draws To A Close

Lot 445 topped the second session of the Land Rover Sale | Goffs

Demand for stores remained high during the second session of Part 1 of the Goffs Land Rover Sale on Wednesday. The overall clearance rate of the two-day stand reached 90%, while total turnover was €20,406,000 (+25%). The average and median were both up by double digits to €51,792 (+12%) and the median to €45,000 (+13%). Just focusing on Wednesday's session, the gross was €9,642,000 for 189 sold from 216 (87%) offered. The average was €51,016 and the median was €42,000.

Seventeen horses broke the six-figure barrier on Wednesday led by a Blue Bresil (Fr) filly (lot 445). Brown Island Stables offered the bay half-sister to the dual Grade 1-placed hurdler Gentlemansgame (GB) (Gentlewave {Ire}). KB Racing/Rod Moorhead and DJ Bloodstock paid €195,000 for the January foal.

A gelding by Saint des Saints (Fr) (lot 415) from Tally-Ho Stud caught the eye of Mags O'Toole at €170,000. Out of the listed-placed hurdler Fleur des Villes (Fr) (Villez), the February foal is a full-sister to two-time Grade 3 hurdle winner Saint Firmin (Fr) (Saint des Saints {Fr}) and a half to Listed Prix Prince d'Ecouen H. Hurdle scorer Floreign Flower (Fr) (Poliglote {GB}), who was also graded placed.

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “The statistics make for happy reading with an impressive 90% clearance rate, a 12% rise in average, 13% median increase and a massive 41 horses realising €100,000 and over, and all from a sale that is only in its second year as a two-day event following the unprecedented demand for places from all the big farms. The latter stat perhaps most graphically illustrates the progress Land Rover has made as there was just one six-figure lot 10 years ago whilst this year's tally is the most recorded at any store sale.”
