UK Tatts Book 2 Day-2: $494k Invincible Spirit Colt
Sheikh Hamdan's Shadwell Estates racing manager Angus Gold out-bid trainers Marcus Tregoning & Paul Cole to also pay 260,000 guineas (A$494,000) for a colt by former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (out of With Approval mare Exclusive Approval) consigned from Peter Player's Whatton Manor Stud. The colt is a half-brother to 3 winners & Gold told racingpost.com: "He was a bit of a standout & all the trainers seemed to love him. It was interesting to see how many judges thought he was a lovely horse. He would definitely have fitted in well in Book 1 & there are some cracking individuals this week who may not quite have the pedigrees."
