Lot 144, by Galileo out of Shastye consigned by Newsells Park Stud Limited

After an astonishing opening bid of 1 miilion guineas, Lot 144 rewrote the records books, when the beautiful bay colt sold for 3.6 million guineas at the Tattersalls October Book 1 Yearling Sale. By Galileo(IRE) out of Shastye(IRE), the colt was the talk horse of the sale and it came as no surprise when John Magnier of Coolmore and Sheikh Fahad bin Hamad Al Thani ended up in a bidding war over the colt. The hammer eventually came down on Magnier's bid of 3.6 million guineas, setting a new European record for a yearling.
