Zephyron Wins Gr3 Premier's Cup

Monday, 26th May 2014

At Doomben in Queensland, 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 0.8-length for trainers Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes in the $125,000 Gr3 Premier's Cup (2200m) for 3YO+, over 8YO gelding Precedence (Zabeel-Kowtow, by Shadeed) & 5YO mare Pretty Pins (Pins-Luna Tudor, by Military Plume). This was the second consecutive stakes victory for the beautifully bred Zephyron who took his record to 5 wins (including the Listed Lord Mayors Cup) and 2 placings from 15 starts for $264,130 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.
