Hughes's racing manager Seth Semkin commented: "He's a beautiful colt. He's got a lot of leg, which I like. He's a great moving horse & there's enough pedigree there for Mr Hughes. We were pleased to get him for US$300,000. We've come to this sale more & more & bought more horses here because it produces racehorses."
