Diverse Doncaster August Sale NH Catalogue Now Online

The catalogue for the Goffs UK August Sale at Doncaster, scheduled for one-day on Wednesday 3 August, is now available to view online and will feature 261 lots, including a new NH 2YO session.

The Doncaster August Sale has long been an established summer outlet for horses-in-training, pointers and stores and this year will add specific sections for NH mares and NH 2YOs. The new 2YO session has been launched in support of the BHA & TBA’s new Junior Hurdle Races which will commence in the Autumn and has been well supported by breeders with 43 horses to be offered in its debut year.

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:

“We are always looking for ways to add to our service and it’s in that spirit that we launch the August Sale’s new NH 2YO session in support of the new Junior Hurdle Races. The new section fits seamlessly into the August Sale, which is an established mid-summer event, and along with the Yorton Sale on 8 September, we now have two sales offering NH 2YOs.

“The mare session has also attracted a good number of entries which are headed by the top-class hurdler Miss Heritage who is sure to generate a lot of interest. Couple that with horses-in-training, stores and some high-class UK & Irish Pointers, many of which have won their debut outings, there is plenty of quality at this sale and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Doncaster on Wednesday 3 August.”
