"Combined with what was a strong 2019 sale, consignors have really backed us and have sent some outstanding horses. The result is a catalogue among the strongest produced in the sale's 43-year history.

"As per previous years, all horses are eligible for the Swedish Derby and Oaks Series, which has proven a big success for the sale with Red Cactus winning the Swedish Derby last year. The global appeal of this sale continues to grow and we look forward to welcoming a large domestic and international audience to Doncaster on April 22 and 23."

The Goffs UK Breeze Up Sale will commence on Wednesday, April 22 at 11am, with the pre-sale breeze held on Doncaster racecourse. The auction will be held the following day and is scheduled to begin at 11am at the Doncaster sales complex.
