COMING close to replicating last year’s extraordinary sale, but not quite achieving the same heady results, Goresbridge delivered another strong edition last week.

The fixture had offered a significantly increased catalogue, and spread over two long days it broadly followed a similar pattern to that of 12 months ago. At the close of play a total of 29 lots returned in excess of €10,000 (33 in 2022) and although once again the four-year-old sector proved the stoutest of the age groups, the averages slipped across the board.
