Caulfield Cup Winner From A Zabeel Mare

 
16 Oct 2011

Zabeel’s massive week in Melbourne has continued with the Caulfield Cup winner, Southern Speed, being from his daughter, Golden Eagle (ex Rising Eagle, by Danehill).

 

The result comes hard off the back of Atlantic Jewel’s magnificent win midweek in the One Thousand Guineas-Gr.1.  Atlantic Jewel is also from a Zabeel mare.

 

Zabeel is now the sire-of-the-dams of 15 Group One winners.  What’s more, he is now a clear leader in the Australia’s Broodmare Sire Premiership.  According to online figures at Arion Pedigrees’ website (www.arion.co.nz), Zabeel’s broodmares have progeny earnings this season in Australia of A$4,065,278.  Danehill (A$2,670,914) is second on the list with Snippets currently third.

 

In Australia this season alone, Zabeel is the damsire of 52 individual winners.
