Orby Graduate Channel Wins French Oaks

Orby Graduate Channel Wins French Oaks


Goffs Orby Sale recorded another Classic success as the Kilcarn Stud-bred CHANNEL stormed to victory in the Group 1 Prix de Diane at Chantilly today in great style for trainer Francis-Henri Graffard and owner Samuel De Barros.  

It was a wonderful result for Pat O’Kelly’s legendary Classic nursery Kilcarn Stud, one of the all-time leading consignors at the Orby Sale.  Channel is a graduate of the 2017 Orby where she was sold by Kilcarn Stud to Meridian International. 

The Prix De Diane was the second Oaks winner in as many seasons from the Orby Sale, as last year’s Epsom Oaks winner Forever Together is also a graduate of Goffs’ flagship sale.
