A touch of Zabeel about leading trio in NZB Series

11 Feb 2012


New Zealand Bloodstock’s 3YO Filly of the Year series has two races to run and the leading three on the points table all have Cambridge Stud’s Zabeel prominent in their respective pedigrees.


Planet Rock (Fastnet Rock ex Akris, by Zabeel) leads the series with 20 points.
  She won both the 1000 Guineas-Gr.1 and Eight Carat Classic-Gr.2 and was an excellent fourth in yesterday’s Sir Tristram Fillies Classic-Gr.2 from a wide draw.


Yesterday’s winner,
Zurella (Zabeel ex Doneze Girl, by Volksraad) is now in second position in the prestigious series on 14 points.
  Like Planet Rock, consideration is being given by her connections to run next in the $750,000 New Zealand Derby-Gr.1 (2400m) 03 March.


Capital Diamond (Lucky Unicorn ex Diamond Smile, by Zabeel) was a game second in yesterday’s Group Two feature, following on from her close second a fortnight ago in the Gr.3 Desert Gold Stakes behind Quintessential.
  Capital Diamond is currently in third position in the NZB Filly of the Year Series on 12 points.
