GOFFS UK NEWS - Doncaster Premier Sale Moved to September
The new 2020 date harks back to the DBS days where the sale, then known as the St Leger Yearling Sales, forged a rich history in a September slot.
Held in conjunction with the Doncaster St Leger race meeting, the sale carved a unique identity, to which the Premier Sale remains loyal today, selling a succession of Group 1 winners such as Lyric Fantasy, Turtle Island, Phoenix Reach, Kyllachy, Cockney Rebel, and Dutch Art etc.
Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:
“This is an extraordinary time with challenges for us all as we strive to get our sales back up and running. Like all auction houses, we are faced with an ever shifting and extremely busy sale calendar in which new positions are difficult to secure. However a September slot gives extra time which may be vital this year especially given the profile of the typical Doncaster yearling.
“With inspections having commenced in the UK and Ireland, the new date gives our consignors surety as they look to plan their prep into the sale. The Premier Sale is no stranger to selling in September having produced numerous Group 1 winning racehorses during its many years as the St Leger Yearling Sales and we are looking forward to seeing this year’s smart nominations in studs in the UK, Ireland and France over the coming weeks.”
The one day Silver Sale, usually held the day after the Premier Sale, will move to later date and held alongside the Autumn Yearling & Horses-In-Training Sale on 21st and 22nd October.
