Goffs Sportsman’s graduates have enjoyed recent success in Ireland, the UK, Italy, France, Germany, the US and Australia, and have a superb strike rate in Scandinavia which was headed this year by the Swedish Derby winner.  A prolific source of two-year-old winners, among its Black Type juvenile graduates this year is Lady Hollywood who landed the Listed Marwell Stakes on her most recent start at Naas for Amo Racing.

Commenting on publication of the catalogue, Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said:

“Our inspection team has worked with Irish breeders to hand pick a quality collection of classy commercial yearlings and real two-year-old types for this year’s Sportsman’s Sale.  The Irish National Yearling Sales week comprising the Orby and Sportsman’s Sales is simply unmissable for buyers and offers a greater selection of quality at every level”.
