Turner Bayou Wins Listed Queensland Cup
At Eagle Farm in Brisbane, NZ Cambridge Stud's multiple champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a stakes success when 4YO gelding Turner Bayou (Zabeel-Classy Choice, by Redoute's Choice) scored impressively by 3.3-lengths for trainer Patrick Payne in the $150,000 Listed Queensland Cup (3200m) for 3YOs+, over fellow geldings, 3YO Fifth Column (Court Command-Pastoral, by Strategic) & 6YO Verdant (Singspiel-Orford Ness, by Selkirk). This was the promising stayer's first black-type success and took his record to 5 wins and 3 placings from 14 starts for $230,847 earnings.
