A SELECT group of store horses, destined originally for sale at the Goffs Land Rover Sale and the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale, came together on Monday at Doncaster and consisted of lots from British-based vendors and from designated Irish vendors who faced logistical issues with the upcoming flat yearling sales.

This cooperation from the two major sales companies in Ireland and Britain showed what can be done in exceptional circumstances, and great credit is due to both organisations for acting in the best interests of their consignors.
