Initially it looked as though the colt (lot 92) would end up in the ownership of either Shadwell or the Hong Kong Jockey Club as Angus Gold and Mick Kinane drove the bidding past last year's record high of £380,000, but a late entrance in the gangway by the Coolmore group of Kevin Buckley, Mick Flanagan and Paul Shanahan ensured that he will be heading to Ireland before long.
"We've been very impressed with what Kingman has achieved at stud to date to the extent that we have bought his son Calyx to stand at stud," said Buckley, who signed the ticket in the name of MV Magnier. "The team was very impressed with this horse and keen to get him."
The horse in question was bred by Bob and Pauline Scott at their Parks Farm Stud from the Exceed And Excel mare
Shamandar, who carried their colours to Listed glory in the St Hugh's Stakes. and hails from a family which includes the hardy and talented duo of Undrafted and Reynaldothewizard. Shamandar is in foal to EXPERT EYE.
