Tuesday, 6th August 2013

Champion New Zealand sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev), the paragon of Australasian stallion excellence, registered the 1,000th individual winner of his remarkable career yesterday with the victory of his daughter Lovin Connection at Stratford, reports NZ Racing Desk. The milestone immediately follows Zabeel's crowning as champion broodmare sire in both Australia & New Zealand for the second consecutive season. Zabeel's 1,000 winners are derived from 1374 runners that have yielded 147 stakes winners, including 43 individual Gr1 winners, for worldwide progeny earnings totalling an incredible $171,271,398. When restricted to Australia & New Zealand, his aggregate prize money totals $128,137,219, eclipsing the great Danehill (worldwide $403,303,563; Aust/NZ $110,146,536).
