Six-Figure Stores Headline Good Start to Doncaster Spring Sale

The three-day Goffs UK Spring Sale at Doncaster got underway today with the Spring Store Sale producing figures largely matching last year’s trade and was headlined by four horses selling for six-figure sums. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sale sold 179 stores today with a clearance rate of 80% and saw two lots share the top price of £105,000. The first to reach the mark was Oak Tree Farm’s Yeats gelding (Lot 76) who sold to Aiden and Olly Murphy for £105,000. The 3YO is a half-brother to this year’s Cheltenham Festival Grade 1 OLBG Mares' Hurdle winner Roksana and will be trained by Olly Murphy. Later in the evening that price was matched with Ballincurrig House Stud’s Getaway half-brother to the Scottish Grand National Winner Joe Farrell (Lot 238) which was knocked down to Ross Doyle and Colin Tizzard. 

Tom Malone and Paul Nicholls came out on top for the remaining two six-figure lots when bidding £100,000 to secure Treannahow Stables’ Getaway gelding (Lot 164) and Busherstown’s Sholokhov gelding (Lot 246).

The Doncaster Spring Sale will continue tomorrow from 10am with the opening day of the Spring HIT/P2P Sale which will include the dedicated point-to-point session and also offer the annual Million In Mind draft. Day two of the Sale on Thursday will offer horses-in-training including the Brittas House and Grech & Parkin Dispersal.
