High profile international buyers are expected to attend this spectacular curtain raiser to horse racing’s most prestigious and elegant showcase at Royal Ascot, and the auction offers purchasers the unique opportunity to buy a horse that is due to run that same week. 

Goffs have now revealed the thoroughbreds featuring in the sale with serious Royal Ascot chances. For aspiring Ascot race owners needing guidance on horses tipped for glory, competitive entries include Group race winners Majestic Queen and Master Apprentice as well as the Group 1 place Smoking Sun.  Other previous winners to be offered for sale include Vallance Road and Pink Angel, as well as the Stakes placed White Bullet, Critical Risk, Cape Wolfe and the rising Asbury Boss. You’re Fired also looks like another fast improving horse heading for Royal Ascot straight from the sale.

Announcing the sale entries, Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby said:

 “Our second Goffs London Sale in association with QIPCO takes up where we left off last year with a quality catalogue full of Royal Ascot potential.  This is a sale that offers buyers something quite unique as they can literally go from sales ring to Royal Ascot within 24 hours.”

“Last year we saw horses that went under the hammer on Monday go out and come back with the prize money throughout the week at Royal Ascot.

 “This extraordinary opportunity has been made possible by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) agreeing to arrange for immediate transfer of ownership for horses sold with an engagement at the Royal meeting.”

Whilst sipping on fine wines from Château Léoube and enjoying afternoon tea from Fortnum & Mason, both official partners to the event, guests attending the sale can explore the beautiful formal gardens in the grounds of Kensington Palace, before some of the top thoroughbreds in Europe go under the hammer.

Going on to talk about the sale, Henry Beeby continues:

“Goffs London Sale attracts an eclectic mix of thoroughbred buyers from all corners of the world. It also aims to attract new owners eager to experience the dream of having a horse to compete on such a world class stage as Royal Ascot.”

Goffs is based in the thoroughbred county of Kildare in Ireland, home to many of the world’s top stud farms, and has specialised in selling the finest quality bloodstock for almost 150 years and it is using the sale to showcase its talent in London ahead of the most important week in international racing.   Their focus will be on offering a small but select group of top class horses that reflect the quality of the racing that week.
