International Interest On Day 1 Of Online Autumn Yearling Sale

The opening session of the two-day Goffs Autumn Yearling Sale, a fully online live sale this year, attracted substantial international interest and recorded rises in both average and median prices.

A total of 1225 online bids were accepted via the Goffs Online platform from 132 individual buyers in Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Kuwait, Poland, Serbia, Sweden and the UK, in addition to a notable number of telephone bids. 

The Day 1 trade returned a 13% rise in average to €6,796 over the 2019 renewal, while the median price increased by 11% to €4,200.  Turnover was down on last year due to offering significantly less horses.   

Highlights included a son of New Approach from the family of Gear Up (Lot 192) that was sold by Boherguy Stud to E Hannon for €40,000; an Oasis Dream colt out of the Stakes placed Maybe Grace (Lot 290) consigned by Loughmore Stud and knocked down to Earlsfort Bloodstock for €30,000; as well as an El Kabeir brother to G3 Marble Hill Stakes winner Minaun that was sold by Eyrefield Lodge Stud (Lot 157) for €29,000 to Noel Meade, who purchased 2020 Group 3 Weld Park Stakes winner Elysium at this sale last year.
