Tavernelle Wins Gr3 Frances Tressady Stakes
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). Earning her first stakes win, Tavernelle (a NZ$330,000 yearling consigned by Cambridge Stud at the 2010 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka) took her record to 3 wins & 2 runners-up (including the Gr3 Trojan Hand Tools Stakes at Moonee Valley) from 12 starts for $173,130 earnings.
