Karaka 2012 Premier Session - Lot 152, Zabeel ex Dawninsky (Stravinsky) colt

Photo taken 06 December


One of Cambridge Stud’s 9 Zabeel colts on offer at the NZB Karaka Premier Sale is the bay colt from Dawninsky, by Stravinsky.




This colt has some interesting points about his pedigree.  For a start, Sir Tristram appears on both sides of his pedigree; so does Nureyev.  Stravinsky, his dam sire, is an emerging broodmare sire force; the VRC Oaks-Gr.1 winner this season, Mosheen, is from a Stravinsky mare.


Dawninsky has already left the winner Tolaga Bay (Elusive City) and is herself a half-sister to the Group Two-winning and Group One-placed Beat The Fade.  Dawninsky is also a half-sister to the Gr.3-winning Dawn Till Dusk.
