Zabeel reaches milestone of 100 individual Group Winners

3 Nov 2013


Zabeel clocked up another extraordinary milestone recently when his daughter Zonza won the Group Three Snowhite Classic at Caulfield.

The result represented Zabeel’s 100th individual Group Prestige Race winner, adding to his remarkable record as a Champion Sire and Champion Broodmare Sire.

It’s appropriate that the 100th Group winner should come during the Melbourne Spring Carnival.
  This period of the racing calendar has long seen Zabeel at his very best, having sired three Melbourne Cup winners and a record four W S Cox Plate winners.

It’s been a year of milestones for Zabeel.
  Recently he chalked up his 1000th individual winner while in the role of a broodmare sire Zabeel was responsible for the dams of the first three runners home in the Group One Underwood Stakes; namely It’s a Dundeel, Atlantic Jewel and Dear Demi.
