With that price tag, they should call her Pretty Penny!

There are many sayings, but the one that springs to mind.....
"a fool and their money........" (not even if I had more money than Warren Buffet )

This is a bit like selling a boat. Two things happen when someone buys a boat. They buyer is happy, but the seller is happier (and then later on the buyer usually finds out why and becomes a seller )

Always feel sorry for those high prices horses. So many of them don't live past 20. Often "killed with kindness". (e.g. look at Secretariat.....dead at 19)

Hmm. I don't like the looks of her but that could just be the awkward yearling stage. I looked Galileo up. I fail to see why he is such an important horse. Maybe someone on here can tell me.

shes in her yearling fuglies so eah not the most impressive looking right now maybe.

I highly doubt that if shes unsuccessful on the track that shell just be thrown away. this is an $8mill investment they aren't just gonna say "oh she's not a runner lets ship her off to the china and forget about the $8 million purchase along with all her training"

hopefully she makes a steller career on the track.

*Insert something witty*

She's a yearling. Pretty much everything you mentioned as making her "ugly" will probably not be the case in a few years. The ewe neck will likely elongate and become more muscled. She will likely grow into her long legs and her pasterns will appear more proportionate. Her withers will likely catch up to her croup as she continues to mature (it's very common for youngsters to gain height at the croup before they gain height at the withers as they go through growth spurts).

tempest, I couldn't figure it out either.

I looked a few other expensive ones up, Green Monkey, Shareef Dancer and Fusaichi Pegasus (who supposedly sold for 60 mil) and I can't figure out why ANY of them are worth such large amounts of money...

Imagine what their reaction would be if the filly got colic or laminitis or got into some poisonous plants

I really don't find her ugly, though nothing super special, especially for being in the yearling stage!

Hm? The Green Monkey sold for $16 million and Seattle Dancer sold for $13.1 million, so I'm not sure how this filly is the "most expensive horse in history". Maybe the most expensive mare, but certainly not the most expensive overall.

EliRose, I believe she is the most expensive yearling, not the most expensive horse.
