THE sixth edition of the Goffs Punchestown Sale once again topped €1 million in turnover, in spite of having the smallest number of lots offered since the sale started. Only two of the 16 lots on offer failed to change hands and there was strong demand for the better lots.

While the sale could not match the excellent returns of the two previous years, the quality of lots on offer was affected by the introduction of the Goffs UK Aintree Sale where many of the lots that might have been earmarked for Punchestown were sent instead.
