Silent Achiever (O'Reilly ex Winning Spree, by Zabeel) became the third horse from a Zabeel mare to win a Group One race this season when taking out last Saturday's New Zealand Stakes (2000m) at Ellerslie.

It's A Dundeel (2013 Underwood Stakes) and Atlantic Jewel (2013 Caulfield Stakes & 2013 Memsie Stakes) are the other two Group One winners from Zabeel mares this term.

Zabeel now leads both the Australian and New Zealand Broodmare Sire Premierships, titles he has won for the past two seasons straight.
