Monday, 4th March 2013

NZ Cambridge Stud's multiple champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a group success when 4YO mare Tavernelle (Zabeel-Wanaka, by Green Perfume) got home by a short-head for trainers Team Hawkes in the $148,500 Gr3 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m) for fillies & mares 4YO+, over 5YO mares Sheila's Star (Snitzel-Northeast Sheila, by Keltrice) & Koonoomoo (Dubleo-Maximova, by Rory's Jester).
