NZB Yearlings Day-2: NZ$800k Zabeel Filly
Adrian Nicoll's BBA Ireland (acting for a Sydney client) paid NZ$800,000 for a filly by Cambridge Stud’s multiple champion stallion Zabeel (the 4th foal out of unraced 9YO Magic Of Sydney mare Jesmonds Gift) consigned by Cambridge Stud. Nicoll commented: “She's a magnificent individual, plenty of size & scope & a lovely walker. She'll eventually end up as a broodmare, but if she can run she'll be worth a goldmine, with a current pedigree from the Canny Lad & Canny Lass family.” The filly’s dam Jesmonds Gift is a half-sister to Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning sire Canny Lad, triple Gr1-winning & dual Gr1-placed Canny Lass (dam of both stakes-winning & Gr2-placed Astute Angel & stakes-winning & Gr2-placed Causeway Lass), dual stakes-winner Sister Canny, dual winner Taareck (dam of stakes-winner Terrace) & unraced Canny Miss (dam of Gr1-winning & Gr1-placed Camarena).
