SOME extraordinary demand for the best stores on the open market drove the Goffs Land Rover Sale to a new high as the opening day of the company’s flagship National Hunt sale made strong gains in several key areas.

A session that saw the number of six figure lots grow from 10 to 14 and produced 34 transactions of €70,000 or more – as opposed to 30 last year – gave rise to a turnover of just under €10.5 million which was a 21% increase on 2017.
