Assembled spectators crossword clue in sentence
A new European record was set at Tattersalls October Book 1 when the half brother to Oaks runner up Secret Gesture(GB) was knocked down to John Magnier for 3.6 million guineas. In the packed auditorium, David Redvers stunned the assembled spectators when he opened the bidding on the Galileo(IRE) colt, out of the Danehill mare Shastye(IRE), with a bid of 1 million guineas. The outstanding colt was consigned by Andreas Jacobs’ Newsells Park Stud Ltd and both parties considered him a potential stallion prospect.
The record however stood for less than 24 hours, before another Galileo, the full sister to Group 1 Investec Oaks winner Was(IRE), was knocked down for 5 million guineas (roughly R78 million) to Mandore International for Al Shaqab Racing after another bidding war with Coolmore’s Magnier. Itwas a new world record for a filly. The sale also represents the highest price in European auction history, beating the 4.6m guineas that Magical Romance realised at the 2006 Tattersalls December Mare Sale.
