DEMAND for the sport horse showed no sign of abating at Goresbridge this week, where the opening day’s trading on Wednesday produced a set of much improved returns.

Confined to the older stock of five years and over, Wednesday’s tables delivered four five-figure prices, together with a significant hike in clearance of 78% (65% in 2019). Once again, the online bidding facility proved its worth, and making a notable difference to the proceedings, lots were frequently knocked down to distance bidders while others boosted the returns.
