Chance for Land Rover vendors to win Defender

VENDORS at this year's Goffs Land Rover Sale will have the chance to walk away with a legendary Land Rover Defender.

All horses catalogued to this year's Land Rover Sale are eligible to run in the €100,000 Land Rover Bumper next season, and one of the iconic vehicles will be presented to the vendor of the successful horse.

"The Land Rover brand is synonymous with our premier National Hunt Sale and this fantastic prize clearly demonstrates the benefits of the collaboration between Goffs and Land Rover," said Henry Beeby, chief executive of Goffs.

"The Land Rover Bumper is a proven buyer incentive that is unique to Goffs, and it is important that the vendor is also rewarded - both with the Defender prize and the prices achieved at the sale - for supplying the quality horses that has seen the sale grow to its current position as the leading source of quick-to-hand National Hunt racehorses."

Eddie Kavanagh, General Manager Land Rover Ireland, added:

"The Goffs Land Rover Bumper, now in itsthirteenth year, has established itself as a premier National Hunt event, combining two outstanding brand names. We are delighted to present the winning vendor at the Goffs Land Rover Sale with a Land Rover Defender - the definitive off-road vehicle and the correct choice for towing horse boxes."

Past winners of the Land Rover Bumper include Cheltenham Festival winner Cooldine and this season's Gold Cup hopeful Imperial Commander.
