We were thrilled to see long time friend and client Deborah Ho outlast the competition to purchase the Ocean Park x Luna Tudor colt, this is a family she knows well having purchased Luna Tudor off the track before on selling her to the Taylor family as a broodmare.
The top priced filly of the day was the O'Reilly x Lillet sold on behalf of Raffles Racing. Making $100,000 she has joined the Go Racing stable.
"We are thrilled with the result as they are a successful outfit and she will be given every chance" said Brent Taylor.
