Goffs UK Managing Director Tony Williams commented:

“Goffs UK yearlings have enjoyed a superb season on the track through the exploits of star filly Laurens and 2YO Advertise and it was very timely to see sale graduate Mabs Cross join that list with a much-deserved Group 1 victory on Sunday. She is a brilliant example as to the talent that can be found at this sale.

“Our Doncaster Horses-in-Training Sales have also had a strong year producing lively trade and some excellent graduates including Tiger Roll, Summerville Boy and Thomas Hobson to name just three. We will be adding to Thursday’s HIT session over the coming fortnight with Point-to-Pointers and Form Horses and entries will be released as they are accepted.”
