Doncaster January NH Foal Session Rescheduled to August Sale

Due to the continued COVID-19 restrictions, Goffs UK have taken the decision to postpone the NH Weanling session of the Doncaster January Sale and will instead offer NH Yearlings during a dedicated section of the Doncaster August Sale on 4 – 5 August.

Goffs UK announced earlier this month that the January Sale would be split into two parts, with Part 1 being a timed online sale of Horses-in-Training and NH Breeding Stock on 26 January and Part 2 being a physical sale of NH Weanlings at Doncaster on 17 February. The revised schedule sees the continuation of the online sale on 26 January with the alteration only applying to Part 2 of the sale.

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented on the postponement of the Part 2 January Sale NH Weanling session:

“It was hoped that we would be in a place to hold a physical sale of NH Weanlings at Doncaster in February and we have been planning as such since our announcement earlier this month. However, with the recent changes in government announcements, the current scale of the pandemic and the issues in getting overseas buyers to the UK, we feel that holding a physical sale next month is not in the best interests of everyone involved.

“We have spoken to all vendors who have entered NH Weanlings and most have committed to offer their entries at the later date. We have also received some very positive comments from vendors who understand why we need to make this change so we would like to extend our thanks to our clients for working with us. The August Sale is a proven and growing NH sale, having sold the likes of Tiger Roll, and recording prices of up to £230,000.

“As stated, we will be holding our Part 1 Online January Sale of Horses-in-Training and NH Breeding Stock as scheduled next Tuesday 26 January from 10am. The catalogue for that sale is online and anyone wishing to bid online must register to bid with Goffs 48 hours prior to the sale.”
