Shadwell goes to $600,000 for Afleet Alex colt

A chestnut colt by Afleet Alex became the new session topper when he sold for $600,000 to Rick Nichols on behalf of Shadwell Estate.

The colt, consigned by Margaux Farm, is out of the multiple graded stakes winning mare Solvig, who herself sold for $750,000 at the 2007 Keeneland January sale.
