The 2018 Aintree Sale at the Grand National Festival

The 2018 Goffs UK Aintree Sale will be held at Aintree Racecourse after racing on Thursday 12 April, the opening day of the Randox Health Grand National Festival.


A boutique sale of Point-to-Pointers and Form Horses, the sale made its debut in 2016 and has quickly established a reputation as a leading source of top class National Hunt horses which attracts all the leading NH buyers. The sale averaged over £100,000 in its first year and also in 2017 and has sold horses up to £335,000, £300,000, £270,000 etc. The sale has also sold horses with entries into the £1,000,000 Randox Health Grand National, giving buyers a unique opportunity to secure a runner two days before the world’s most famous Steeple Chase.

Despite being a new sale, graduates have been quick to make their mark on the track and are headed by SAMCRO, who was offered by Colin Bowe in 2016 and was purchased by Gordon Elliott for £335,000. Raced by Gigginstown House Stud, Samcro is now a Grade 1 winner and remains unbeaten in seven starts, a rising star in the NH ranks. Other leading graduates include the Nicky Henderson trained Gr.2 winner CONSTANTINE BAY and multiple race winners Carter Mckay, Give Me A Copper, Solighoster etc.
