The National Hunt Stallion Showcase, held the Goffs Doncaster Sales Complex on Wednesday 24th January gave breeders the opportunity to view some of the newest recruits to the National Hunt stallion ranks, alongside a number of established sires. The initiative which is supported by Goffs UK is now in its second year, and was run alongside the UK’s only National Hunt Foal sale, allowing breeders to compare youngstock at the same venue as some of their sires.
The event proved popular once again, attracting a larger crowd and 16 exciting British- based NH sires. Amongst those on show included Overbury Stud’s new recruit Jack Hobbs who was joined by his stable companion the Melbourne Cup winning Dunaden. Yorton Farm once again provided a strong line-up which included popular young sires Blue Bresil, Clovis Du Berlais, Pether’s Moon and Universal. Whilst the recently retired, Dartmouth was joined by his impressive stable companions Telescope and Scorpion. Established sires Native Ruler and Passing Glance represented Batsford Stud. Whilst Frankel’s full brother, Proconsul, international campaigner Cannock Chase and new recruit Dragon Dancer completed the line-up.
The TBA would like to extend its sincere thanks to Goffs UK and to all the studs and stallion masters who helped to make the day such a success.
