If you’re wishing to get youngstock privately in France, you’ll get the pick of the offerings by getting in early and buying them as foals or yearlings. A lot of these purchases are for the end user.
Goffs & Tattersalls hold Foal & Yearling sales respectively at Fairyhouse, Kill and Doncaster, where it is possible to acquire the very best of the UK & Irish foal crop, there is value in purchasing this age of horse for the end user, rather than waiting for the Store Sales at 3.
Our approach to buying any stock is extremely well considered, we commit a great deal of time to researching & developing theories on pedigrees and trends to help identify potentially elite level racehorses, we are always aiming to improve and adjust these criteria. When we view any horse, we combine these theories along with our trained eye for an athletic & physically well made thoroughbred. This ideology has been utilised to great success by the yard (Culverhill Racing) Lizzie had so much success for, they have operated at a formidable strike rate of runners to graded performers and it has been achieved using these processes. We have taken these practices on board and applied a lot of our professional experiences to adapt and improve it for our clients.
