UK Doncaster: $78k Machiavellian colt
Swedish agent Stefan Uppstrom paid 30,000 guineas (A$78,000) for another Sheikh Mohammed/Mark Johnston offering Metternich (a 3YO Machiavellian colt who won a Wolverhampton maiden in his only start). Uppstrom told racingpost.co.uk: "He's going to be trained in Sweden by Alec McLaren (a Scotsman who was a jockey in Scandinavia). The new owner was here today & keen to get the horse, who looks ideal for the big races at home. The Pramms Memorial (a Listed race at Jagersro in May) could be a target."
