Goffs launch Kempton Ready-To-Run Sale

MEMBERS of the bloodstock fraternity gathered at Motcombs of Belgravia on Monday evening to celebrate the launch on the Goffs Ready-To-Run Sale at Kempton on Tuesday March 29.

Goffs have catalogued 88 two-year-olds for the sale, which will be staged just over two weeks later than its former position of the Friday before the Cheltenham Festival.

All the horses will breeze on Kempton's Polytrack from 10.30am. The sale will start at 3pm following a champagne reception hosted by Goffs and Kempton Park Racecourse and lunch will be served in the sales arena prior to and during the sale.

"The process of selecting and purchasing a racehorse is an important part of the ownership experience and we have added some extras to this year's sale so that owners can combine the business of acquiring future winners with the pleasure of a real social occasion," said Henry Beeby, chief executive of Goffs.

"Kempton's proximity to London and Heathrow meanwhile makes it particularly convenient for international and London based clients.

"This sale is a must for owners eager to get racing and get winning, and the title of Ready to Run proved to be as accurate as ever in 2010 with winners flowing less than a month after the sale."

Beeby noted that over half the horses offered at last year's sale are winners led by Roses Stakes winner New Planet and Puddle Duck, both of whom at the York Ebor meeting.
