Irish Pointer Do Your Job Tops Doncaster Autumn HIT Sale

Today’s Goffs UK Autumn HIT Sale once again saw its point-to-point/form horse session produce the sale topper with the Irish pointer Do Your Job selling for £150,000.

The 5YO son of Fame And Glory (Lot 81) won his debut point-to-point for Colin Bowe at Castletown-Geoghegan earlier this month and subsequently sold to Mark Dunphy and Derek O'Connor. “We are delighted to have purchased him, he was the standout lot today and is to go into training with Claire Dyson,” commented O'Connor. “He’s an athletic type and Colin has produced some cracking horses such as Samcro and Malone Road so hopefully he can follow in their footsteps.”

The point-to-point/form horse session also sold the four-time flat winner Buzz (Lot 76) to Highflyer Bloodstock for £80,000 while winning pointers Pennyforapound (Lot 83) and Press Your Luck (Lot 88) both sold for £40,000 to Rebecca Curtis and Ed Stapleton & Chris Gordon respectively.  

Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams commented:

“Today’s sale demonstrated once again the strength at the top of the market with the Listed placed and four-time winner Buzz and debut winning Irish pointer Do Your Job selling well – the later matching last year’s top price of £150,000. This sale has produced some outstanding racehorses such as the triple Gr.1 winner Supasundae and we wish our buyers, who have travelled from throughout Europe and the Middle East, the very best of luck with their purchases.”

Entries are now open for Goffs UK’s final horses-in-training sale of 2019, the December HIT Sale, for which entries are due by 11 November.
