Goffs Doncaster Yearling Sales
On August 27th we will start the search for the next generation of horses. We will be heading to Doncaster for the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, which runs the 29th and 30th of August. Over the years this sale has become established as a key source of two year old talent, many of whom train on well to a good level as they mature. Doncaster is always about the individual, good strong athletic horses that should be ready to race early in their career. They don’t always have the fancy pedigrees one might find at other sales but the type of horse in the catalogue should be runners, and the sale produces champions year after year.
As the first British yearling sale of the year it can be a competitive market however, we’ve bought a couple of yearlings at the sales there in the past. Disko and Thewaythewindblows, both of whom won maidens as two year olds. Disko was particularly talented achieving an official rating of 95 and with her best form being beaten just a length in the Listed Empress Stakes at Newmarket. She was picked up for just £10,000 and gave her owners some really exciting days out.
If you would like to add a yearling to your string get in touch to discuss the opportunities at this and the other major yearling sales in the next couple of months.
