Goffs Doncaster Breeze-Up Sale Moves To Royal Ascot Week In London
Goffs has moved one of its flagship sales, the Doncaster Breeze-Up Sale to now take place on the eve of Royal Ascot providing the meeting goes ahead as planned at a location to be determined close to London.
Traditionally held in April, the date and venue were changed in the wake of ongoing uncertainty due to the coronavirus crisis.
Furthermore, Goffs' boutique London Sale will not take place this year. Instead, the rearranged breeze-up are likely to be held either on June 13-14 or June 14-15.
Goffs has also pushed back its National Hunt store sales, with the Goffs UK Spring Sale, which also incorporates a horses-in-training offering, now due to take place in the week commencing July 27.
Its showpiece Land Rover offering, originally slated for June 9-10, has been pencilled in for the week beginning Aug. 3. In a press release revealing the changes, hope is expressed that Goffs' autumn yearling sales either side of the water will go ahead as originally scheduled.
The rearrangements follow a similar move by Tattersalls, whose May store sale will now follow its Derby sale offering at the end of June.
