Jonbon Heads Supplementary Entries for Goffs UK November P2P Sale at Yorton Farm

A superb weekend of point-to-points in Ireland have produced some outstanding supplementary entries for this Thursday’s Goffs UK November P2P Sale at Yorton Farm in Wales (12 November) and the 12 additional lots are headed by the hugely impressive debut winner Jonbon, an own brother to Douvan.

Due to restrictions on numbers imposed by the Welsh Government, only registered/recognised owners, trainers and bloodstock agents can attend the sale. The sale will be streamed live and online bidding is available at www.goffsonline.com.

Ridden by Goffs UK P2P agent and Champion P2P Jockey Derek O’Connor, the 4YO Jonbon (Lot 8) made his much anticipated debut at Dromahane yesterday where he produced an imposing victory, taking the lead three fences from home and under a hand-and-heels ride, effortlessly raced home to an imposing 15-length victory. Trained by Ellmarie Holden, the son of Walk In The Park is an own-brother to Douvan whose eight Grade 1 wins include the Cheltenham Festival’s Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and the Arkle Chase.

In total, nine of the 12 supplementary entries are winners, making for an impressive total catalogue of 74 pointers and bumper horses for Thursday’s sale. The other supplementary entries are below (pedigrees will be online later today).

  • Lot 6, Great Heart'Jac (5YO G by Blue Bresil), winner of his most recent P2P for Colin Motherway at Lisronagh on Saturday.
