Purchased earlier this week by the Hollywood Syndicate, this son of Coup De Grace (USA) appears to be a very classy looking colt and he has the pedigree to back him up. Here he is at the point of sale, generating some big interest amongst the prospective buyers out there and we were very lucky to pick him up in the end.
