Goffs UK, in partnership with Goodwood Racecourse, will hold a boutique sale for high-end Horses-in-Training and breeding opportunities at this year’s Qatar Goodwood Festival on Wednesday 1 August.
The new venture comes off the back of the hugely successful Goffs London Sale, a highlight of the European Sale calendar, and expands the Goffs Group’s offsite sales to five. The sale will take place after racing and is ideally timed to accommodate international clients with access to newly released Hong Kong permits and for those who are looking for horses to race in the lucrative Melbourne Spring Carnival in Australia and major Middle East Festivals.
The sale is also well timed for the domestic market, being placed in the middle of the flat season, and like the Goffs London Sale, will offer high-end horses in all areas of the market such as a select group of fillies and mares and stallion nominations.
Australasian based Bloodstock Agent Guy Mulcaster commented:
“It’s a great initiative as the sale is perfectly timed for Australasian buyers. There is growing demand for international horses to race in the Spring Carnival, especially in races such as the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups, and the date means horses can be purchased and quarantined making it logistically viable leading in to the Melbourne Spring Carnival.”
Hong Kong based Bloodstock Agent George Moore commented:
“I travel the world searching for horses that suit racing in Hong Kong and this sale will be a welcomed prospect for our owners looking to fill their permits. Qualified and sound horses will allow me to be active at the Goodwood Sale.”
