Limited Book For Savabeel

Friday, 20th March 2015

Waikato Stud's outstanding young stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) will be restricted to a limited book of mares for the 2015 breeding season, reports NZ Racing Desk. Savabeel, whose 2015 stud fee will be decided shortly, is currently Australasia's equal number one sire for Gr1 winners this term, with his best progeny including star mare Lucia Valentina, Costume, Soriano and last Saturday's New Zealand Oaks winner Savaria. "He will be serving a restricted book of mares this year and there is very limited opportunity outside of his syndicate ownership for outside mares," Waikato Stud principal Mark Chittick said. "He's had an unbelievable career so far. With 39 black-type winners at a rate of 9.4 percent stakes winners-to-runners, he is widely regarded as the most successful stallion available in New Zealand."
