WHILE Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum’s agent Angus Gold was busy spending just over seven million guineas of his boss’s money in Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale on 19 lots, he upped the spend this week to add a further 51 lots to the Shadwell team.

They averaged 166,765gns and cost Sheikh Hamdan 8,505,000gns, bringing his total spend by Wednesday evening to just short of £16.5 million over two weeks. Last year Sheikh Hamdan bought 40 lots in Book 2.
