Extra day added to Sportman's Sale due to increased demand
Auction will take place on October 3-4
The Goffs Sportsman's Sale will be held over two days this year following an unprecedented number of applications, with the auction set to take place on Thursday and Friday, October 3-4, following the two-day Orby Sale.
Goffs have attributed the impressive 85 per cent clearance rate at last year's Sportsman's Sale to a strong international buying bench, and this has led to an increase in the number of yearlings nominated for and matching the selection criteria for this year's sale.
Goffs group chief executive Henry Beeby said: "The Goffs team, including our network of international agents and our friends at Irish Thoroughbred Marketing, will travel the globe between now and the end of September to deliver the largest possible group of buyers for every yearling catalogued by Goffs.
"Last year we welcomed our most diverse international group of purchasers to the Goffs yearling sales and we have already confirmed an unparalleled number of overseas buyers and have many more promotional trips planned between now and the sale.
"The extension of the Sportsman's means that we can accommodate a higher number of yearlings that meet the strict criteria we set out for this sale, resulting in a simply unmissable week of yearling sales in Ireland at Goffs.
"We will have a specific marketing campaign for the Sportsman's Sale alongside the Orby, and vendors can rest assured that we will work tirelessly to deliver the best result for every yearling entrusted to us."
