NZB 2YOs & Mixed: NZ$220k O'Reilly Colt
In the NZ auction ring, NZB (as agent for "overseas interests") out-bid Victorian trainers Fran Houlahan & Brian Johnston to pay top price (& new sale record) of NZ$220,000 for a colt by O'Reilly (the 6th foal out of winning Waikiki Star mare Miami) during the 1-day NZB South Island Sale of 2YOs & Mixed Bloodstock at Canterbury Agricultural Park in Christchurch. The colt was consigned by Berkley Stud & his dam Miami has produced 4 to race to date (all winners).
