Superb Doncaster Premier Sale Catalogue Now Online


Royal Ascot success is the pinnacle for many owners’ racing dreams and the Premier Sale has a proven track record of fulfilling these ambitions.

This was evidenced again in June when GOLDEN HORDE won the Gr.1 Commonwealth Cup, following the success of ADVERTISE in the same race last year, whilst THE LIR JET landed successive Goffs UK wins in the Gr.2 Norfolk Stakes after rising star A’ALI won the race in 2019.

Top level Premier success was also recorded in Dubai and Germany this year courtesy of BARNEY ROY’s two Gr.1 wins, and in the 2YO ranks the sale has produced an impressive and ever-growing eight Stakes winners thus far. The Lir Jet is joined by fellow graduates and top juveniles SUPREMACY who impressively won the Gr.2 Richmond Stakes, Gr.2 Prix Robert Papin victor VENTURA TORMENTA, unbeaten Gr.3 Prix de Cabourg winner CAIRN GORM and Listed winners METHOD, FEV ROVER, GUSSY MAC and SARDINIA SUNSET.

Commenting on the publication of the Premier catalogue, Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent said:

“It has been a very strong year for the Premier Sale on the track and once again it has proved its ability to produce horses of the highest calibre with A’Ali and particularly Golden Horde. Both elite 2YOs last year, they have progressed in their 3YO season to hold strong stallion credentials and look set to follow other top graduates such as Advertise and Harry Angel who have recently secured their place at leading studs in the same way as the likes of Acclamation, Dark Angel, Wootton Bassett etc.

“Seeing these results is very exciting for the sale and the host of top 2YOs we have this year, headlined by the likes of Cairn Gorm, Method, Supremacy, The Lir Jet and Ventura Tormenta, certainly puts it in a strong position for the latter half of the season and their Classic season next year.

“We have some outstanding yearlings catalogued this year, including siblings to some of our star performers, and we have plenty to look forward to over the coming weeks with a number of graduates lining up in Group 1 races. We will be busy in the build-up marketing this catalogue to our ever-growing global audience and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Doncaster on 1 – 2 September where we will be strictly  following the updated protocols to ensure that we comply with the UK Government’s latest COVID guidelines.”

Please note that due to COVID-19, the Doncaster Silver Sale has moved away from its traditional date and will now be merged with the Doncaster Autumn Sale on 21 – 22 October.
