Cheltenham Festival: Five winners for Goffs Group on superb opening day...

Horses bought at Goffs and Goffs UK dominated a superb opening day at the Cheltenham Festival with ALL five winners that had been sold at public auction being Goffs graduates.

This included a double for Goffs Land Rover Sale, the leading store sale at the Festival for the previous three years, which was headed by Altior’s powerful performance in the Grade 1 Arkle Chase followed by Tully East in the last, while Goffs UK HIT Sales enjoyed a hat trick with wins for Labaik, Un Temps Pour Tout and Tiger Roll. 

All the team at Goffs wish to congratulate the connections of every winning graduate today:
