Hes Remarkable another from a Zabeel mare

21 Mar 2012

Yesterday’s fresh up Newcastle Newmarket Handicap-Gr.3 winner He’s Remarkable adds to the long list of black type performers this season from Zabeel mares.


Stakes winners from Zabeel mares in Australia alone this season number 10 and collectively this group has won 14 Group and Listed Races.  He’s Remarkable joins the likes of Southern Speed (Caulfield Cup) and Atlantic Jewel (MRC Thousand Guineas) on this growing list of success in Australia for Zabeel this season as a broodmare sire.


Zabeel leads the Australian Broodmare Sire Premiership with progeny earnings of A$8,605,339.  His mares have left 141 individual winners in Australia this season and collectively this group of horses has won 207 races in the season to date; information courtesy of Arion Pedigrees (www.arion.co.nz).


He’s Remarkable was bred by Rich Hill Stud from their Zabeel mare Axiom.  The 4YO son of Pentire has now won 6 of his 16 starts for prize money of A$542,012.  He was second in the NZ 2000 Guineas-Gr.1 at three and first past the post in November’s WATC Railway Stakes-Gr.1, only to be relegated to second in a post-race enquiry.
