Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams commented:

“The Doncaster Premier Yearling Sale is enjoying another superb year with the highlight thus far being the Group winning treble at this year’s Royal Ascot meeting. This sale is an established source of Royal winners and this is backed up by the fact that it has produced three of the last six Norfolk Stakes winners and three of the last five Albany Stakes winners – just two of the meeting’s many races in which the sale has excelled. 

“In addition, the Premier & Silver Yearling Sales are the world’s only yearling sales to have sold winners of one of the feature races of the Royal meeting, the Gr.1 Commonwealth Cup, a race won by Premier graduate Advertise this season.

“The 2019 Premier catalogue shapes as one with the firepower to continue this fine record and we look forward to welcoming an international audience to Doncaster on 27 – 28 August.”
