Ebendi Sells Online To Joseph O'Brien For €165,000

The winning Aga Khan-bred Ebendi sold today for €165,000 to Joseph O’Brien in Goffs’ first ever timed online sale which took place via the Goffs Online platform. 

A maiden winner at Killarney in July for Dermot Weld before finishing second at the Curragh to subsequent Breeders Cup winner Order Of Australia, Ebendi attracted 27 bids from five individual bidders representing interests from Europe, South Africa and Australia. 

The three-year-old Le Havre gelding is out of a winning daughter of Irish Oaks star Ebadiyla and is a half-brother to a number of black type performers including the Group 2 Prix de Royallieu winner Ebiyza.  Ebendi was originally catalogued for the Goffs Autumn Horses In Training Sale which took place earlier this month as a live sale on Goffs Online, however due to being cast in his stable was withdrawn and reoffered in today’s groundbreaking sale.

At the conclusion of the sale, Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby commented:

Following the success of our two recent live online sales, we are pleased to have secured a good price for Ebendi in this alternative online format and are grateful to HH The Aga Khan Studs for the opportunity”.
