Zephyron Wins Listed Lord Mayors Cup

Monday, 12th May 2014

At Rosehill Gardens, Cambridge Stud's retired Champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Zephyron (Zabeel-Diamond Like, by Danehill) scored by 0.2-length for trainers Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes in the $100,000 Listed Lord Mayors Cup (2000m) for 3YO+, over 8YO UK-bred gelding I'm Imposing (Danehill Dancer-On Fair Stage, by Sadler's Wells) & 6YO German-bred gelding Secessio (Königstiger-Suisun, by Monsun). This was the first stakes victory for Zephyron who took his record to 4 wins and 2 placings from 14 starts for $183,030 earnings. Zephyron, who hails from the family of legendary producer Eight Carat, was purchased for $2 million by James Bester at the 2010 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Cambridge Stud.
