Zabeel Announced as Winner of The Centaine Award

 
3 Aug 2010


Cambridge Stud's champion sire
Zabeel (NZ) has been announced the winner of 2009/10's
The Centaine Award.


Established in 2008/09, the award is based on the sire whose NZ-conceived progeny have accumulated the highest stakes earnings worldwide for the season.




Sir Patrick Hogan with The Centaine Award's 2009/10 winner, Zabeel


New Zealand Thoroughbred Marketing has deliberately held off publishing the result until all races had been factored in, but in association with
Arion Pedigrees
we can now report that
Zabeel has taken out the award with the  accumulation of
10,161,878 in worldwide progeny earnings for the season.

 

Such a tally ultimately afforded a
$76,337 buffer over Waikato Stud's outstanding sire
O'Reilly, who was in fact the previous winner of the award.


Upon hearning of
Zabeel's final standing, Cambridge Stud's Sir Patrick Hogan commented:


"Zabeel's shareholders and I are delighted that his name will be on The Centaine Award,"


"He does not have a lot of time left and he deserves to be on the Award, through the sheer fact that he has been distinguished on so many other awards in Australia and New Zealand."
