Too Darn Hot's Brother Sells For 3.5 Million Guineas

Yesterday saw another record breaking day at the October Tattersalls Yearling sale with Tuesday's biggest amount of money spent on a horse blown out the water when full brother to Lah Ti Dar and Too Darn Hot sold for 3,500,000 Gns to Qatar Racing.

It was another day of money being splashed around at the sales at Newmarket with many primed young specimens up for grabs and trainers and owners there in apprehension to get the best lot on offer.

This was the colt previously owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and bred by Watership Down Stud and really looks an impressive prospect out Dubawi as the Sire and Dah Re Mi the Dam and what makes it so reliable is the previous prospects that have been produced out of these two horses.

The lot was officially bought by David Redvers of Qatar Racing for in pounds £3.675 million which is astonishing for anything let alone a horse.

The bidding started off at Newmarket with 500,000 Gns which is the highest starting price of the week to date. There were many interesting parties in for the colt with Bloodstock agents Jamie McCalmont, Mike Ryan and Robert Nataf all in for the horse along with Japanese trainer who was yesterday just outbid by Coolmore's Magnier for Japan's brother who went for 3,400,000 Gns.

However they soon dropped away and Shadwell's Angus Gold started to be the front runner for the yearling but then Redvers stepped in only when the lot went up to 3 million Guineas and sealed the colt by bidding the final 200,000 Gns and no one else could match up.

After the bidding had settled Redvers did not reveal who the horse would be trained by with John Gosden looking the favourite to do so. It will be down to Sheikh Fahad who gets the final nod to train this soon to be superstar and the racing world is very much looking forward to seeing what he is like.
