Enzeli (foaled 5 April 1995) is a retired Irish-bred Thoroughbred racehorse and stallion. He won Ascot Gold Cup in 1999.

Background[edit]

Enzeli was bred at the Aga Khan's Studs and foaled on 5 April 1995.[1][2] He was sired by Kahyasi.[3][4] Enzeli's dam is Ebaziya, by Darshaan.[5][6] Enzeli is the Ebaziya's second foal.[7] His half-sister is Estimate, winner of the 2013 Gold Cup for Queen Elizabeth II.[8] Enzeli has a lean and lengthy appearance.[9]

Enzeli was trained by John Oxx.[10][11] He was sold for nearly 200.000 pounds to Australian businesspeople Kerry Packer and Lloyd Williams in 2000.[12][13] Then he was trained by Myles Plumb.[14]

Racing career[edit]
