World’s Most Expensive Horse fetches more than $8m at Auction

Oct 10 (Express) — The as-yet-unnamed filly is the daughter of the most sought-after stallion on the planet, Galileo, who enjoyed a highly successful track career before being retired to stud.

A ONE-YEAR OLD filly has today become the most expensive horse in history after fetching more than $8m (5.25m) at auction in Newmarket.
Galileo also sired Frankel, who himself retired to stud last year following an unbeaten 14 race career that saw him become the world’s highest rated racehorse.
The filly was purchased by bloodstock agents Mandore International for Al Shaqab Racing which is owned by Sheikh Joaan Al Thani of Qatar.
Al Thani is an emerging powerhouse of the turf and also owns both Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe-winner Treve and top miler Toronado.
Nicholas de Watrigant of Mandore said: “She is a magnificent specimen.
“We bought her sister last year and we think she could be special, we didn’t want to miss this one.
“We didn’t expect to pay that sort of price, but Al Shaqab Racing is keen to invest.”

It figures that it was al shaqab. They already breed the worlds finest arabs.

I can't imagine how much money will be spent on top of that for training.

She is exquisite....as a baby her possibilities are incredible.
But that amount of money...whew!!! Incredible...

I hope if she is garbage on the track she is allowed to just become a sweet riding horse or mommy once she grows up and matures some...not be sent down the road....

She can come live in my yard any day!!
