Following the success of last month’s Goffs Online January Sale, which sold horses-in-training and breeding stock up to £300,000, Goffs are to hold another timed online sale on 24 March for which entries are now open.
The Goffs Online March Sale will largely be focused on horses-in-training but will also be open to breeding stock and entries can be made online through the Goffs UK website here. The timed online sale concept made a successful debut for Goffs last autumn when The Aga Khan’s Ebendi sold for €165,000 whilst last month’s January Sale produced the three highest prices achieved by any online sale in the UK and Ireland in 2021: £300,000 for the debut bumper winner Hollymount, £170,000 for the dual Grade 1 winner La Bague Au Roi and £125,000 for the well-related mare Buck’s Bee.
The Goffs Online March Sale will be conducted in pounds sterling and the entry fee is £195 + VAT. Entries are due by Monday 8 March.
Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby commented:
“The Goffs Online platform has proved a key addition to our service over the last year with close to €8 million worth of business being conducted via the medium. Last months January Sale was very well supported and clearly illustrated the growing appetite for online sales in the current climate as it produced the three highest prices achieved by any online sale in the UK and Ireland in 2021 so illustrtaing its ability to sell elite bloodstock with three six-figure lots and a £300,000 top price.
“Vendors have expressed plenty of positive feedback selling through Goffs Online as it can bring significant savings with a lower entry fee of only £195 + VAT, no travel and sale staffing costs as well as an assurance that the sale will take place regardless of the COVID restrictions at the time. Buyers have also voiced positive sentiments, in particular that with all lots sold with a veterinary certificate, which buyers can vet against following the sale, there is an extra level of security which provides confidence when bidding on horses.
“We have proven that Goffs Online provides a strong marketplace for horses-in-training in particular and that will be our focus for the new March Sale. Like the online January Sale, the catalogue will only be available to view on the Goffs Online website, it will not be printed, and it will be released on Friday 12 March.”
