Kool Kompany is to stay in training with Richard Hannon having been bought privately.
The dual Group Two-winning juvenile was offered at Doncaster's Horses in Training Sale but failed to meet his reserve.
However, he was subsequently acquired by Neil Werrett, well known in racing circles as the co-owner of superstar Australian mare Black Caviar.
Speaking at Salisbury, Hannon said: "He didn't meet his reserve, but he has been bought by a man called Neil Werrett who was involved with Black Caviar. It was a private sale, but luckily he is staying with us and will be aimed at something like the Middle Park.
"I don't know if he will want to take him to Australia later on, but we're pleased he's still in the yard."
Formerly owned by Middleham Park Racing, the son of Jeremy has enjoyed his finest moments to date in the Railway Stakes at the Curragh and the Prix Robert Papin at Maisons-Laffitte.
