Sires to feature include Blue Bresil, Boris De Deauville, Clovis Du Berlais, Fame & Glory, Gentlewave, Great Pretender, High Rock, Kallisto, Masterstroke, No Risk At All, Pether’s Moon, Saddex, Scalo, Silver Frost, Tai Chi and Turgeon.
Yorton Stud Director David Futter commented on the catalogue:
“We are really happy with the draft and I think it will hold great appeal with buyers. We have a good mix of horses which we have bred at Yorton and horses which we have purchased from throughout Europe so the draft has plenty of scope – we have a horse for everyone.
“Preparations on the stud are coming along very well and we are looking forward to kicking off what will be an annual sale on 12 September at Yorton Stud.”
“We have been very keen to hold a sale of this nature for some time and are delighted Goffs UK have partnered with us. We will be offering home-bred and hand-picked progeny by leading and young up-and-coming National Hunt sires. The sale will be a wonderful opportunity to open our doors and showcase the stud, which the property owners, James and Jean Potter have been extensively and sensitively restoring over a number of years”.
Tony Williams, Goffs UK Managing Director shared his thoughts on the forthcoming Sale:
“We are thrilled that Yorton Stud have partnered with Goffs UK to help promote and run this exciting new sale and we would like to extend our thanks to David Futter and the team at Yorton for choosing us. Goffs UK are always looking for new ventures in which to expand and we have seen how successful boutique sales can be. This will be a unique sale in the Goffs calendar and Yorton’s beautiful setting will provide the perfect venue for this exciting new venture.”
