UK Tatts HIT Day-3: $314k Mount Athos
Bloodstock agent Stephen Hillen (acting for owner Dr Marwan Koukash) paid 190,000 guineas (A$314,000) for triple-winning 3YO colt Mount Athos (Montjeu-Ionian Sea, by Slip Anchor) consigned The Croft Stables of trainer John Hills. Mount Athos carried a Timeform rating of 100 & Hillen (who indicated the colt will be going into training in Ireland with David Wachman) commented: "This was my pick of the sale. He looks a very progressive type, with a lot of improvement in him. I would hope he will develop into a Cup horse."
