NEW ZEALAND’S STAKES PRODUCING PHENOMENON
31 individual Stakes Winners from 6 crops to race proudly demonstrate SAVABEEL’s ability as a stakes producing phenomenon. In fact, in the history of New Zealand’s greatest ever sires, only his own mighty sire ZABEEL and grandsire SIR TRISTRAM had sired more stakes winners at the equivalent stage of their careers.
On the basis of Australasia’s leading stakes producers of 2013-14, Savabeel currently features as the number one sire thanks to his outstanding 9.0% lifetime Stakes Winners-to-Runners ratio.
