Following the sale Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby said:
“Today’s Horses-In-Training Sale has demonstrated yet again that we can and consistently do deliver the best prices for the category. Indeed this is a sector of the market in which we think we have so much more to offer but lack the numbers to attract a bigger group of buyers. That said we have sold horses to the Gulf Region and across Europe today which will only serve to inspire us to redouble our efforts to grow the catalogue in 2019, following a sale that has returned growth in every statistic.
For now we extend our thanks to each vendor and every purchaser, and wish them luck with their latest Goffs graduates”.
