Plus 13 and dry when waking in Doncaster.

Yesterday was another hot day at Goffs Sales.. 24 degrees..That was the temperature, but the prices of horses reflected that too as the medium was up the best part of 50%


Aiden Murphy and I bought two horses .. Lot 417 and Lot.455A. two superstars? Ask me in a years time but they look pretty good at the moment.

A whole gang of us had supper in Bawtry last night taking Michael Dale out..Michael is retiring as a Director of Goffs in July and will be sorely missed..Top man and he has looked after us all so well for years..Happy retirement Michael, we will miss you..

Back to Goffs Sales today and the horses we are selling are Jimmy The Jetplane. Boy In A Bentley, Beyond Supremacy and Shaluna.. all are sound and will have other jobs in racing.

We have one runner this afternoon at Warwick; David Bass rides and for my thoughts on Derrintogher Bliss’s chances please click here.
