"I purchased Ohoka Hall's dam Landora's Special from the north island after she had finished her racing career," said Darryl Brown.

"Ohoka Hall is her second live foal. He has been a beautiful type right from day one."

"I would have been happy with half of that, we only had a reserve of $50,000 on him," He added.

Ohoka Hall was purchased by R A &Mrs D J Smith, the owners of the late Springbank Richard ($664,338).
