Goffs UK Managing Director Tony William’s commented:

“We are delighted with the results achieved at the inaugural Goodwood Sale at the Qatar Goodwood Festival which saw us achieve a sale average of £237,500. The results in the ring this evening clearly demonstrate there is an appetite for these specialist, boutique sales and our top price of £400,000 certainly reinforces that. 

“The Goodwood Sale adds to Goffs'  boutique offsite sales which already includes the London Sale on the eve of Royal Ascot, the Aintree Sale, Punchestown Sale,  and the Champions Sale which is held on Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown on 15 September. 

“We would like to thank Goodwood for partnering in this sale, as well as our vendors and buyers, and we look forward to seeing it develop in the years to come.”
