Tally-Ho Stud’s Roger O’Callaghan has paid tribute to the record-breaking Harry Angel colt who sold for £500,000 at the Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale on Tuesday but died less than two days later in a transport accident.
The Harry Angel colt was sold to trainer Michael O’Callaghan, who held off the persistent challenge of Amo Racing’s Kia Joorabchian as underbidder.
Roger O’Callaghan told TDN Europe on Saturday morning, “It’s a crying shame but accidents happen. We’ll never know how good he really was.”
The horse was pinhooked by Tally-Ho Stud for €38,000 at the 2021 Goffs November Foal Sale before breaking the record for the most expensive breeze-up horse ever purchased at Goffs UK.
