Henry Beeby, chief executive of the Goffs Group, said: "The Goffs February Sale is a clear market leader at this time of year and its popularity is illustrated by the expansion [of the February Sale] to three days.
"We're also delighted to be handling the first part of the complete dispersal of Ballymacoll Stud as well as the conclusion of the Wildenstein Stables dispersal."
