Today’s inaugural Goffs UK Yorton Sale got off to an exciting start with a big crowd of buyers from throughout Europe descending on the beautiful Yorton Farm Stud for the select offering of National Hunt yearlings and two-year-olds.
Designed from the onset by Yorton Stud owner, David Futter, as a unique event with a catalogue featuring lots not often found at the more established foal and store sales, it certainly delivered with the sale’s top lot being a 2YO colt. Boasting a pedigree befitting that of a NH stallion, being by No Risk At All out of the Grade 2 winner Princesse Kap (Lot 11), the colt was the subject of strong demand in the ring before selling to Dai Walters for £105,000.
Demand was strong throughout the sale with 29 of the 32 lots offered selling, producing a superb clearance rate of 91%. Other lots to feature were Lot 20, a 2YO gelding by Fame And Glory, who sold to Dai Walters for £60,000 and Lot 21, a 2YO gelding by Blue Bresil, who sold to Donnchadh Doyle for £40,000.
