SALES: Channon chasers in demand at Goffs UK
on 20 May 2021
The demand for horses in training showed no signs of slowing down at Doncaster on Thursday

THREE smart chasers trained by Mick Channon and owned by Tim Radford dominated the final session of the Goffs UK Spring P2P/Horses In Training Sale at Doncaster on Thursday.

The day's trade was topped by Channon’s Grade 2 placed chaser Hold The Note, which sold for £130,000 to Brian Jordan, who was accompanied by trainer Alistair Whillans.

Channon also produced the Grade 2 winning chaser Mister Whitaker, which sold to Donald McCain for £70,000, and Glen Forsa - another Grade 2 winning chaser - which was purchased by Charlie Longsdon for £52,000.

Another lot to feature was Godolphin’s Group 3 winner Moonlight Spirit, which sold to James Moffatt and Varlien Vyner Brooks for £75,000.

The two days saw an impressive clearance rate of 93%.

Goffs UK managing director Tim Kent commented: “We were certainly hopeful of a healthy Spring Sale, especially following the significant issues faced last year and, like many others, we have been blown away by the level of demand for horses.

"It’s another very positive sign for the bloodstock industry, following the record-breaking results achieved in the same sales ring just four weeks ago at the Breeze Up Sale. This is something that we can all enjoy and bodes extremely well for all future sales."
