Tatts Ireland Day-3: $83,000 Halling Colt
Agent Bobby O'Ryan (buying for Kevin Prendergast) also paid €52,000 (A$83,000) for a well-bred colt by dual Gr1 Eclipse Stakes winner Halling (sold by Sheikh Maktoum Al Maktoum's Gainsborough Stud Management from its Ballysheehan Stud near Cashel) reported racingpost.co.uk. The colt (out of Listed winner Nightbird) is closely related to this season's Gr1 2000 Guineas winner Footstepsinthesand. O'Ryan commented: "He is a lovely horse with a great action & a real good pedigree. He's also got a grand temperament; if he gallops as well as he walks, he will be a racehorse."
