UK Tatts Yearlings Book-2 Day-4: $238k Dark Angel Colt
Sheikh Hamdan's Shadwell Estates representative Angus Gold also paid 140,000 guineas (A$238,000) for a colt by Dark Angel (out of Green Desert mare Thawrah) consigned from the Cashman family's Rathbarry Stud. The colt was previously sold for 50,000 guineas (A$85,000) at the 2009 Tattersalls December Foal Sale & Gold commented: "This is a family we know very well (referring to Sheikh Hamdan's ownership of Arjuzah, this colt's 2nd dam who has produced Sheikh Hamdan's Gr1-winner & dual Gr1-placed Malhub). This is a gorgeous horse. Dark Angel was a sharp & precocious 2YO. I have seen most of his horses here & I have liked the majority of them."
