Classy Initial Entries Announced For Goffs London Sale

Royal Ascot-bound winners, international racing prospects and Group 1 breeding rights are among the initial entries revealed for Goffs London Sale in association with Privat 3 Money which returns to Kensington Palace Gardens on the eve of Royal Ascot, Monday 13 June.  

Among the early highlights are the winning Star Girls Aalmal (pictured) from Henry De Bromhead who finished fourth in the Group 1 Irish 1000 Guineas; the Andrew Balding trained Hoo Ya Mal who won the Convivial at York at two and was third behind Native Trail in last months’ Craven and holds entries in the English and French Derbies, as well as Black Type winning fillies Ladies Church and Symphony Perfect.

Fourteen lots are confirmed so far with additional entries to be announced next week.  A hugely popular aspect of the sale for international buyers in attendance is the opportunity to purchase a runner for Royal Ascot and the majority of horses in training will be offered with engagements at the Royal meeting that will be confirmed in due course.  Unique to Goffs London Sale is BHA’s facilitation of an on the spot change of ownership at the sale to ensure that any Goffs London purchase can run at the Royal Meeting in the new owners colours.

Pedigrees, photos and race and conformation footage will be available online next week.
