TAB: Zabeel Progeny Feature in 2005 Melbourne Cup

TAB: Zabeel Progeny Feature in 2005 Melbourne Cup

Champion New Zealand stallion Zabeel – currently the leading sire in Australia this season - has a very strong hand in the final field for the 2005 $A5 million Emirates Melbourne Cup run over 3200m at Flemington today. Zabeel has already sired the winner of two Melbourne Cups. Might And Power took out the famous race in 1997 and Jezabeel was successful the following year.

Zabeel's sire, the legendary Sir Tristram, also sired the Melbourne Cup winners Gurner’s Lane (1982), Empire Rose (1988) and Brew (2000). Zabeel has six runners in the Melbourne Cup starting line-up this year headed by Caulfield Cup winner Railings who is one of the most favoured runners. Railings also won the Gr. 1 Metropolitan in Sydney prior to his Caulfield success and the four-year-old is poised for an unprecedented treble.
