The company that is now Goffs UK Ltd was founded as Doncaster Bloodstock Sales (“DBS”) in 1962 by Willie Stephenson and Kenneth Oliver. However, bloodstock sales had been part of Doncaster for a very long time and, in fact, the St. Leger Yearling Sales were the oldest bloodstock sales in the United Kingdom.
On 6th July 2007, Goffs and DBS completed a landmark merger, forming a bloodstock auction house that provides a strong, vibrant and innovative international auction house. Goffs Bloodstock Sales and DBS joined up under the Robert J. Goff and Co plc. banner with sales continuing from Kildare Paddocks in Co Kildare, Ireland, and Doncaster in the UK. DBS was rebranded to Goffs UK in April 2016, so continuing the harmonisation of the Goffs and DBS brands.
The combined entity offers an extensive programme of sales throughout the year at eight locations in Britain and Ireland, including a boutique sale in the grounds of Kensington Palace. The sales offer nearly 10,000 horses each year and cover every sector of the bloodstock market, with auctions conducted by a consistent team of world-class auctioneers and horsemen with unrivalled experience.
