Kensington Palace To Host New Sale
The inaugural Goffs London Sale will fittingly take place on the eve of Royal Ascot at the Orangery at Kensington Palace on Monday 16 June, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. The auction will offer a combination of Classic-bred breezers alongside a selection of top-class horses in training. Juveniles will breeze on the Polytrack at Kempton on the weekend prior to the sale. All horses will be stabled at the Surrey-based racecourse, where they will be available for inspection on Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning. "The Orangery at Kensington Palace is one of the most beautiful venues in London and the timing on the eve of the world's most prestigious race meeting should ensure that Royal Ascot week 2014 begins in some style," said Goffs chief executive Henry Beeby. "Our focus will be on a small but select group of top-class horses that reflect the quality of the racing that week." Mr Beeby added: "This is one of the most exciting recent additions to the global sales calendar and will be promoted extensively around the world by the Goffs team."
