Hume Wins Chairman's Handicap

Monday, 14th May 2012

NZ Cambridge Stud's multiple champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a group success when 8YO gelding Hume (Zabeel-Lolette, by Arazi) scored a 0.75-length victory in the $115,000 Gr3 Chairman's Handicap (2000m) at Doomben. Hume (ridden by Scott Galloway for trainer Brian Smith) defeated 6YO geldings Ironstein (Zabeel-Gentle Genius, by Danehill) & Warrior Within (King Cugat-Ava Bolli, by Volksraad). Hume (originally a NZ$400,000 yearling consigned by Whakanui Stud at the 2005 NZB Karaka Sale & subsequently in January 2009 a $22,000 purchase consigned from Lloyd Williams Racing Stables at the inaugural Magic Millions Summer Carnival Thoroughbred Sale) took his record to 7 wins (also including 2009's Gr3 Tattersalls's Cup over 2200m at Eagle Farm) & 6 placings (including 2009's Gr3 Lexus Stakes over 2500m at Flemington & Listed Grafton Cup over 2350m) from 32 starts for $394,175 earnings.
