Goffs Sale goes online

A year ago, the Goffs UK January Sale ensured the British and Irish auction calendar began with a bang as the highly touted bumper winner Keskonrisk set a new record when knocked down to Henrietta Knight for £370,000.

This time around, however, the Doncaster sales ring will remain empty with Goffs UK having been forced into moving the event online as a result of ongoing Covid-19 related restrictions.

The sale, which begins on Tuesday at 10am, will be the first exclusively online event hosted by Goffs UK and will also see the introduction of timed auction software, with bidding on each lot set to close two minutes after the proceeding lot. However, any bid placed inside the final five minutes will extend the sale time for that lot by a further five minutes. – Racing Post.
