Champion Sire Zabeel Pensioned

   Zabeel (NZ) (Sir Tristram {Ire})–Lady Giselle {Fr}), by Nureyev), two times Champion Sire in Australia and four times in his native New Zealand, has been pensioned from stud duty at Cambridge Stud in New Zealand. The 27-year-old is the sire of 100 group winners, including 43 individual Group 1 winners, including Octagonal (NZ), Vengeance of Rain (NZ), and Might and Power (NZ). He also excelled as a broodmare sire, siring the dams of 22 individual Group 1 winners, including this year’s standouts Atlantic Jewel (Aus) and It’s A Dundeel (NZ). He earned a pair of Broodmare Sire Championships in both Australia and New Zealand. His current sire sons include Reset (Aus) and Savabeel (Aus).
   Cambridge Stud owner Sir Patrick Hogan, who also pioneered the stud career of Zabeel’s sire, Sir Tristram, said: “It’s the end of an era, and what a ride it’s been for Cambridge Stud. I could never have imagined what Sir Tristram was able to achieve and pretty well immediately afterwards came Zabeel to take over the mantle--it’s been an amazing 33-year run.”
   “He is enormously fit, both physically and mentally, and you wouldn’t pick there was anything wrong with him,” Hogan added. “He had 30 odd mares this season and when he came to the end of serving he hadn’t got any in foal so he is officially retired. The fertility just hasn’t happened, but he’s a horse that’s not going to go away, though, and his progeny in New Zealand and Australia will continue to perform for
many years to come.”
