Goffs clarify status of upcoming auctions
on 20 March 2020
The Aintree Sale has been lost but the company still hopes to stage its sales at Punchestown and Doncaster

THE Goffs UK Aintree Sale was a casualty of this week’s decision to cancel all racing in Britain for the month of April, including the Grand National.

On Friday evening, the Goffs group issued the following update on the status of their upcoming auctions.

Yearling Sales – Doncaster Premier & Goffs Orby: Nominations should be returned to Goffs and Goffs UK online so that inspections can be arranged in due course. When stud visits commence our teams will follow strict protocols to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients and staff.

Aintree Sale: Cancelled due to the cancellation of the Randox Health Grand National meeting. However, we are working on alternatives and will contact potential vendors in due course.

Doncaster Breeze-Up Sale: 22-23 April – as things stand we plan to go ahead. In any event we will not make any finite decision until Monday 30 March when we will review the situation at which time we will decide whether we need to delay the sale or can proceed as originally scheduled. However, to be clear, the 2020 Doncaster Breeze-Up Sale will be held and the only issue is when.

Punchestown Sale: 30 April – as with Aintree, this sale depends on whether the Punchestown Festival takes place. We will react accordingly and in consultation with the Punchestown executive.

Doncaster Spring Sale: 18-21 May – stores: entry forms should be returned to Goffs UK and the catalogue will be published on April 15th. HIT/P2Pers: entries can be made in the usual way via the Goffs UK website. Entries close on 20 April. Should the Aintree and/or Punchestown Sales not be held those entries will be accommodated at Doncaster.

Goffs Land Rover Sale: 9 - 10 June – entry forms should be returned to Goffs and the catalogue will be online on 1 May.
