SALES: Goffs sell 99 yearlings in 'virtual' live sale
on 17 November 2020
Over 1,200 online bids were received during the opening session of the Autumn Yearling Sale

GOFFS sold 99 yearlings on Tuesday during the first session of the two-day Autumn Yearling Sale, which is being conducted without horses or buyers on-site.

A total of 1,225 online bids were accepted via the Goffs online platform from 132 individual buyers in Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Kuwait, Poland, Serbia, Sweden and the UK, in addition to a notable number of telephone bids.

Although turnover was down due to significantly fewer horses offered for sale, the day's trade saw a 13% rise in average price to €6,796 over the 2019 renewal, while the median price increased by 11% to €4,200.

Highlights included a son of New Approach from the family of Gear Up that was sold by Clare Manning's Boherguy Stud for €40,000; an Oasis Dream colt out of the stakes-placed Maybe Grace consigned by Kitty Cowhey's Loughmore Stables and knocked down to Earlsfort Bloodstock for €30,000; as well as an El Kabeir brother to Group 3 Marble Hill Stakes winner Minaun that was sold by Eyrefield Lodge Stud for €29,000 to Noel Meade, who purchased 2020 Group 3 Weld Park Stakes winner Elysium at this sale last year.

The Autumn Yearling Sale continues on Wednesday at 10am. Videos of each lot, together with vet certs and passports, are available to view on the website.
