Three horses break £200,000 barrier at Goffs UK Spring Sale
on 20 May 2016
J.P. McManus snapped-up two of the top three lots, while Roger Brookhouse bagged the other

Three horses topped £200,000 at the Goffs UK Spring HIT Sale on Wednesday.

Anthony Bromley and David Minton’s Million In Mind draft headlined proceedings and produced the day’s top prices with the Grade 2 winner and Grade 1 placed Le Prezien selling to Frank Berry on behalf of J.P. McManus for £290,000. Just one lot earlier, Berry went to £260,000 to secure Million In Mind’s Listed winning mare The Organist, also on behalf of J.P. McManus.

The Select Supplementary Session, which featured current Point-to-Point and Bumper winners, also saw its share of fireworks and was topped by Espoir De Teillee who created a huge impression on his debut at Athlacca earlier this month. The four-year-old equalled the sale’s top price last year when selling to Roger Brookhouse for £220,000. The Select Session saw three additional horses sell for over £100,000 with Milestone Stables’ Minella Warrior selling to Jill Lamb Bloodstock for £180,000, Monbeg Stables’ Calino d'Airy purchased by Harold Kirk and Willie Mullins for £150,000 and Newlands Farm Stables’ Ravenhill Road selling outside the ring to Phil Martin for £100,000.

The Spring HIT Sale continues on Thursday, starting at 10am.
