MOUNTAIN View Stud, owned by Rory and Barry Mahon, consigned a son of Shamardal on behalf of a syndicate of breeders that own the winning King’s Best mare Dehbanu and the yearling generated a tussle between Angus Gold and Patrick Cooper. Sheikh Hamdan’s man won the battle at 250,000gns for this three-parts brother to dual Group 3 winner Dubai Prince. It was just one of many high-profile purchases on the day – and during the week – by Shadwell Estate.
