Trimmed Goffs February catalogue published
GOFFS has published the catalogue for its February Sale, which is two days shorter and contains almost half the number of lots as last year's renewal.
The February Sale has varied in length in recent years, from three days in 2002, 2003 and 2005, to five days in 2007, when the sale was split into two parts.
This year's catalogue contains 533 lots, made up of broodmares, weanlings and horses in training. The largest consignment comes from Darley, which has 19 horses entered.
At last year's renewal 989 horses were catalogued, with 372 of the 702 horses offered selling for a total of €4,562,000, at an average of €12,263.
Goffs chief executive Henry Beeby said: "We've taken a pretty pragmatic view of what needs to be sold this spring.
"We've been quite selective, as the sales at the end of last year showed that simply filling a catalogue isn't the right thing to do.
"What we do have in the catalogue is certainly worth looking at – there's plenty of quality on offer."
The catalogue for this year's sale, which takes place on February 10 and 11, can be viewed online at www.goffs.com.
