George Stanners will be leaving his role at Goffs UK and will join Yorton Farm as bloodstock manager in the new year.

A well-known industry figure, Stanners joined Doncaster Bloodstock Sales in August 2004 and continued when it emerged with Goffs, subsequently becoming an auctioneer with managerial responsibility. 

He will begin his new work with stud director David Futter and owners James and Jean Potter from January 1. 

Futter said: “George’s appointment is one of the most exciting developments in the history of Yorton. He is widely respected by the bloodstock community, he has a wealth of knowledge and marvellous contacts across all sectors of the industry.

“As our business has grown it has become apparent that we need someone of George’s experience to work with me in sourcing horses, attending bloodstock auctions and liaising with clients. He is an excellent people person, who is going to be another point of contact for Yorton."

He continued: “The team at Yorton and James and Jean are looking forward to welcoming George and his wife Laura when they move to this area from their present home in Scotland.”

Stanners said: “I'm excited to be taking up this new role with Yorton. I joined DBS/Goffs straight from school 17 years ago and can’t thank Henry and Harry Beeby enough for that opportunity. It is 100 per cent accurate to say I owe the team at Goffs UK everything in my career thus far.

"Yorton is a growing force and I look forward to playing my part in continuing that when I take up my role in the new year.”
