Horse racing: One-year-old filly sold for record $10.5m fee
(REUTERS) - A one-year-old filly has been sold at auction for a world record 5.25 million pounds (S$10.5 million).
The unnamed filly is the daughter of Galileo, the world's most sought-after stallion who also sired Frankel, who claimed a perfect winning record in 14 races.
The horse was sold for a world-record fee for a year-old filly and it was the highest figure paid at a European auction.
It was bought by Mandore International for Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al Thani's Al Shaqab Racing, which is owned by the Qatari royal family.
