Goffs chief executive Henry Beeby said: “Goffs' Punchestown Festival Sale clearly illustrated the strong demand that exists for horses with National Hunt potential and with the return of our horses in training sale we aim to further meet this demand.

“We will also target horses that may be of interest to international Flat markets such as Hong Kong and the Dubai Festival.

“Traditionally the leading vendor at this sale, I am pleased to confirm that His Highness the Aga Khan’s horses are already committed for 2011.”

Jim Kavanagh, of the Irish Trainers Association, commented: “Ireland needs a horses in training sale. Goffs sale is the only outlet for Irish trainers to sell in Ireland and we welcome its return.”
