Goffs/Doncaster Launch New UK Flat HIT Auction
Also in the UK, Goffs & Doncaster Bloodstock "are to hold their 1st joint sale venture since the companies merged in 2007" reported racingpost.com. They will hold a boutique sale of highly-rated flat horses-in-training after racing at the DBS sales complex near Doncaster racecourse on Friday September 9 (eve of the Gr1 St Leger). Goffs & DBS "are drawing comparisons between its new horses-in-training sale at Doncaster & the Arqana Arc Sale, a popular boutique sale of high-class flat horses that takes place on the eve of the Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe". No more than 50 horses will be accepted for the new DBS sale. Goffs/DBS group chief executive Henry Beeby noted: "The success of the Goffs & DBS sales this year at Punchestown & Newbury, as well as the breeze-up sales at Kempton & DBS, proves that demand for quality horses who are ready-to-run is higher than ever. The St Leger meeting at Doncaster is the perfect fit for this sale, as it attracts all the key UK & international owners & trainers while we can utilise the excellent facilities at DBS for the sale."
