Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams commented:

“This sale has enjoyed a great year on the track headed by graduate Tiger Roll who became Goffs UK’s (DBS) second dual Grand National winner after Red Rum achieved the feat in 1974. 

“In the sale ring come 7 August we have plenty to look forward to, particularly with the second part of the Grech & Parkin Dispersal which produced so many highlights at our Doncaster Spring Sale in May. We have also been very well supported with drafts from the major owners and trainers and it’s wonderful to have a draft from Aga Khan Studs for 2019. We also have a high number of pointers and young bumper horses and among them are some serious prospects.”
