Six-Figure Colt Tops Highly Successful First Annual Yorton Sale

Today’s inaugural Goffs UK Yorton Sale got off to an exciting start with a big crowd of buyers from throughout Europe descending on the beautiful Yorton Farm Stud for the select offering of National Hunt yearlings and two-year-olds.

Designed from the onset by Yorton Stud owner, David Futter, as a unique event with a catalogue featuring lots not often found at the more established foal and store sales, it certainly delivered with the sale’s top lot being a 2YO colt. Boasting a pedigree befitting that of a NH stallion, being by No Risk At All out of the Grade 2 winner Princesse Kap (Lot 11), the colt was the subject of strong demand in the ring before selling to Dai Walters for £105,000. 

Demand was strong throughout the sale with 29 of the 32 lots offered selling, producing a superb clearance rate of 91%. Other lots to feature were Lot 20, a 2YO gelding by Fame And Glory, who sold to Dai Walters for £60,000 and Lot 21, a 2YO gelding by Blue Bresil, who sold to Donnchadh Doyle for £40,000.

Yorton Stud Owner David Futter commented:

“We are delighted with today’s results, this sale has been a long time in the making and I’d like to thank the whole of the Yorton Farm team who have worked tirelessly during the last few months. We would also like to express our immense gratitude to the Goffs UK team who have helped bring this concept to life and to everyone who attended today’s sale and supported this exciting new venture. We believe the Yorton Sale has a bright future and we hope this initiative will become an annual date on the NH calendar."

Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams commented:

“Today was an exciting start to the Yorton Sale and we would like to congratulate David Futter and the Yorton Team on what was an excellent sale. The figures, headlined by a 91% clearance rate, a top price of £105,000 and an average of just shy of £25,000, are proof of his concept which we are delighted to have been apart of.

“We have called this sale the first annual Yorton Sale and following today’s success and the positive feedback of buyers who have travelled from all over France, Ireland and the UK, it will be the first of many.”
