Star 3YO from Zabeel mare

26 Dec 2011


Planet Rock looked every bit the dominant 3YO filly of the current season when blitzing her rivals in yesterday’s Group Two Eight Carat Classic, sponsored by Cambridge Stud, at Ellerslie.


Planet Rock clocked a sizzling 1.33.98 for the 1600 metres and left a top-class field of 3YO fillies behind her gasping.


Planet Rock (Fastnet Rock ex Akris, by Zabeel) is likely to back up in Sunday’s Royal Stakes-Gr.2 (2000m) to further her big lead in the New Zealand Bloodstock 3YO Filly of the Year Series.


Planet Rock is from a Zabeel mare and the sire is a clear leader in the NZ Broodmare Sire Premiership.
  Zabeel also leads the Australian Broodmare Sire Premiership.
