Tatts Ireland Day-3: $124,000 Xaar Colt
Nurney-based agent Bobby O'Ryan out-bid John Fretwell & paid the Tattersalls Ireland Day-3 top price of €78,000 (A$124,000) for a Xaar colt (consigned by Michael Dalton's Broguestown Stud) "from a family packed with American winners, notably the 1979 champion sprinter Star De Naskra" reported racingpost.co.uk. O'Ryan declared: "He's a smashing horse. I thought he was a star & I hope he is a racehorse. His sire is having a fantastic time & this colt, although a big horse, should be spot on by the middle of next season. He is for Howard Johnson."
