Goffs Punchestown Sale- A Focus on Quality

The Goffs Punchestown Sale, to be held after racing next Thursday 28 April, was the first sale of its kind to be held in a parade ring at a major racing festival.  With numbers strictly limited it always catalogues lots of a certain quality, and the headline horse among its graduates is undoubtedly Honeysuckle, the dual Champion Hurdler.

All of last Sunday’s winners of the Irish 4yo gelding Maidens are entered in the Punchestown Sale, as well as winners from the previous Sunday including the pick of that weekend’s performers, the exciting Castleward.
