UK Tatts Book 2 Day-2: $352k Compton Place Colt
Irish veterinarian & Coolmore agent Demi O'Byrne out-bid trainer Mark Tompkins & agents Tom Goff & Stephen Hillen to pay 160,000 guineas (A$352,000) for a colt by Compton Place (out of Anabaa mare Westwood) consigned from Ciaran 'Flash' Conroy's Glenvale Stud in Ireland. This colt was also a great pin-hooking result for Conroy, who purchased him as a foal for just €46,000 (A$78,000).
