Inaugural Yorton Sale Catalogue Now Online

The select catalogue for the first annual Goffs UK Yorton Sale on 12 September 2019 at Yorton Farm Stud is now available to view online and will offer a total of 37 entries. View the catalogue >>

The new initiative has been an ambition of Yorton Stud Owner David Futter and his team for some time and this year’s inaugural sale will be the first of what is hoped will develop into an annual event on the sales and National Hunt calendar.

The select catalogue will offer 28 2YOs and nine yearlings which are a mixture of horses that have been bred on Yorton Farm and sourced from studs throughout Europe. The format of the sale will see the stud open its doors at 8am on Thursday 12 September for inspections with the sale to commence at 1pm.

The catalogue is not only unique in that it will offer predominately 2YO stores but also that it will offer four colts including Lot 11, a 2YO by No Risk At All out of the Gr.2 and dual Gr.3 winning Kapgarde mare PRINCESSE KAP, and Lot 31, a Pether’s Moon yearling out of the Listed winning King's Theatre mare BLUE BUTTONS.

Some of the other highlights of the 2019 Yorton Sale catalogue are:

  • Lot 2, a Gentlewave 2YO half-sister to the Gr.2 and dual Gr.3 placed The Saint James.

Yorton Stud Owner David Futter commented on the inaugural Yorton Sale catalogue:

“This is a unique event on the annual sales calendar and is something the Yorton team have been striving towards for some time. The draft has come together very well and I think it will hold great appeal with buyers as not only will it offer some outstanding young horses, it will offer something different – that being 2YO stores that can be brought into training earlier as well as the opportunity to race well-bred colts.”

Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams commented:

“We are delighted with the catalogue for the first annual Goffs UK Yorton Sale which is set to offer some outstanding NH stock. Interest in the sale has been very strong and this catalogue will undoubtedly attract buyers from throughout Europe to Yorton for the inaugural sale.”
