Horse superstars giving Federer & Messi a run for their money

(CNN)The main auction ring at Tattersalls, Europe’s leading bloodstock auctioneers, is packed as Lot 325 nervously enters.

The yearling pricks up his ears as he walks next to his groom in the auction ring in Newmarket, the home of British racing.
After a frenzied bidding war, the colt is eventually snapped up by David Redvers, the British racing and bloodstock manager to the young Qatari Sheikh Fahad al-Thani and his brothers, for 3.5 million guineas ($4.8 million).
