The online auction record was broken on Monday night when Gr1 Zabeel Classic winner Consensus (Postponed-Kate Cross, by Cape Cross) sold for A$622,500 to the bid of Yulong Investments, reports breednet.com.au.
gavelhouse.com General Manager Haylie Martin was grateful for the opportunity to showcase the benefits of selling online.
“It’s a privilege to be given the opportunity to present horses of Consensus’ calibre to the market. There was plenty of interest in her from New Zealand and Australian clients right from the outset and this result demonstrates again that there really are no boundaries when it comes to presenting horses for sale online.”
Consensus won eleven of her 62 starts including the 2016 Gr1 Zabeel Classic over 2000m in New Zealand.
Only recently retired to stud, the 8YO mare is in foal to Iffraaj (Zafonic-Pastorale, by Nureyev) who recently gained his tenth Gr1 winner when Wyndspelle (Iffraaj-Western Star, by High Chaparral) won the Gr1 Captain Cook Stakes on Saturday.
