NEWS: Neil Walsh joins Goffs team
on 31 July 2020
The Co Kilkenny breeder was with Tattersalls Ireland for 12 years before stepping down in February

NEIL Walsh has joined the bloodstock team at Goffs and will take up his new role on the inspection panel as a vendor liaison in August.

He spent 12 years with Tattersalls Ireland, where he was head of bloodstock and director of bloodstock, before stepping down in February. He also held a number of committee positions during his time at Tattersalls Ireland including on the International Cataloguing Standards Committee, the ITBA National Hunt Committee and the Anti-Doping Task Force.

Walsh previously spent six years in the racing department of Horse Racing Ireland. He is also well known to the point-to-point community having given over 12 years as a raceday official and inspector of courses for the Turf Club. A keen breeder, he has his own band of broodmares on the family farm in Co Kilkenny and combines breeding with buying flat and National Hunt foals for resale.

Goffs’ chief executive Henry Beeby said: “I have no doubt Neil is a perfect fit, combining experience and knowledge with a hands-on approach that is the hallmark of the modern-day Goffs. His experience, horsemanship and passion for racing perfectly complements the current team and aligns very well with our ambitious business development plans.

“Neil has proven success in sourcing top-quality sales horses under both codes and a strong background in customer relations which will only enhance the unrivalled Goffs service to our valued vendors.”

Walsh added:“I am delighted to join Goffs and look forward to helping build on the company’s impressive progress with both their flat and National Hunt sales.”
