A quality session of Point-to-Pointers and a huge buying bench featuring purchasers from throughout Europe ensured a brilliant opening day of the Goffs UK January Sale at Doncaster.
The sale produced phenomenal results at the top of the market with supplementary entries in the Point-to-Point/Form Horse Session including two Irish Point-to-Pointers which sold in excess of £200,000.

Colin Bowe’s Lorvon Pearl (Lot 67) also attracted plenty of interest when selling to Eamonn Phelan for £90,000.
