Record Price Headlines Another Big Year for Doncaster Spring Store Sale


The 2022 Goffs UK Spring Store Sale came to a successful conclusion today at Doncaster, producing the second highest set of figures in the sale’s history and cementing the significant gains achieved at last year’s record-breaking sale.

A total of five lots made six-figure sums over the two days, exceeding the number last year, and with yesterday’s record top price of £200,000 unbeaten, it was Brown Island Stables’ Gris de Gris gelding (Lot 301) which took top honours late in the day today when selling to Henrietta Knight for £155,000. Oak Tree Farm's Getaway gelding (Lot 184) set the tone earlier in the day with Gordon Bloodstock going to £140,000 to secure the horse who was out of a half-sister to the multiple Grade 1 winner Binocular. Goldford Stud's Kapgarde filly (Lot 272) was another headline, being out of a half-sister to the multiple Grade 1 winner Vroum Vroum Mag, and was purchased by Jerry McGrath for £110,000.

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:

“We have added another successful chapter to the Spring Store Sale’s 60-year history and it seems fitting that it was this year that we set a new record top price for a British store with yesterday’s £200,000 top price.

“Last year we ambitiously expanded this sale to two top-class days, set new records across the board, and on the back of that, we doubled the prize fund of our bumper to £100,000, making it the richest bumper in the world. We have invested a lot into the sale, it holds an important place on the calendar being Britain’s only elite store sale, so to see it maintain the ground it gained last year, whilst setting more new records, is very gratifying and we can look back over the last 12-months and be very pleased with what it has achieved.

“We are obviously only half-way through the Spring Sale with two-days of horses-in-training and pointers to come but we would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has supported us for the Store Sale and we look forward to another big two-days of selling – starting tomorrow at 10am.”
