Zabeel vs Danehill

30 Mar 2010

It’s been well publicised that Zabeel clocked up his 40th individual Group One winner last weekend when Zabrasive (NZ) won the Darley Rosehill Guineas.


So how does Zabeel’s record compare with the greatest stallion to have stood in the Southern Hemisphere in the last two decades, Danehill


NZTM called on Arion Pedigrees for some assistance and came up with some interesting measures of the respective greatness of these wonderful stallions.
