Damien Hirst's The Incredible Journey to fetch more than £3.25M at auction Sep 15-16 2008



Intrade : Business
Online prediction market Intrade enabled people to put money where their mouth is. In 2008, the upcoming auction of Hirst's The Incredible Journey was subject of an online bet containing several statements about the height of the winning bid.

On September 16 2008, CBC News reported that 'only' $2.1 million (£1.2M) was paid for The Incredible Journey, a zebra in formaldehyde. As such, it did not live up to the expected range leaving a gap of half a million GBP to the lowest option (£1.75M).
