Feature Yearling Profile - Lot 439

23 Jan 2014

Karaka 2014 could well represent the last time that buyers will be able to select a yearling Zabeel filly at public auction.  While the Champion Stallion still has one crop to come, the numbers are limited and filly owners are likely to be reluctant to let go of female stock by Australasia's number one broodmare sire.

Zabeel has been Champion Broodmare Sire in both Australia and New Zealand for the past two seasons straight and right now he again sits and the head of the respective Australasian damsire premierships.

One of the Zabeel fillies being put forward by Cambridge Stud next week is Lot 439, CLICK HERE to view her pedigree.

It's very much an international family with the dam by Danehill, the second dam by Secretariat and the third dam by In Reality.

For the record, Group One winners carrying the Zabeel-Danehill cross are Vengeance of Rain and Dizelle.
