To be held on 28 and 29 July, the Doncaster Summer Sale will hold the Spring Store Sale on Tuesday from 10am which will offer 228 top-class entries.

Featuring progeny by the leading sires and from some outstanding NH families, the sale looks well placed to continue its good run of form on the track this season with graduates including COPPERHEAD, EMITOM, IF THE CAP FITS, MIDNIGHT SHADOW, RAMSES DE TEILLEE etc. all making headlines.

The store catalogue was published online in May and all horses have now been assigned official lot numbers.

The Spring HIT/P2P sale will also offer horses from owners and trainers including Alan King, Clive Cox, Dan Skelton, Denis Murphy, Godolphin, Gordon Elliott, Jonjo O'Neill, Mark Johnston, Mick Channon, Nicky Henderson, Nigel Twiston-Davies, Paul Nicholls, Philip Rowley, Roger Varian, Sam Curling, Tom George, Tom Lacey, Warren Ewing, Willie Mullins etc. Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:

“The Spring Store and HIT/P2P Sales are our largest NH sales of the year and in a tough 2020, we are delighted to now have a catalogue out and a new date confirmed to offer them.

This year will see a small change to the Spring Sale’s traditional format as the compacted sale calendar has required that the August Sale be incorporated and thus, the sale has been rebranded the Doncaster Summer Sale.

“What has not changed is that once again we have been very well supported with some outstanding stores, point-to-pointers and horses-in-training and, as in previous years, the sale will feature the annual Million In Mind Dispersal.

So, despite the new date and a new name, the spirit of the Spring Sale is very much alive as it embodies the very essence of our goal to offer the best NH horses of all ages in one catalogue.”
