SAVABEEL CONTINUES G1 DOMINATION
Champion sire Savabeel has continued his G1 domination into 2016-17, striking dual Gr.1 success with 5YO son Kawi and with 3YO son Hall of Fame in the Levin Classic.
Previously, after setting the benchmark for all other Australasian sires with a stunning 6 G1 winners in a season in 2014-15, the champion sire produced 3 G1 winners of 5 G1 races in 2015-16.
Bettering his 2014/15 award haul when he claimed the Dewar (Australasian earnings) and the Grosvenor Award (New Zealand premiership), SAVABEEL claimed additional Centaine Award success in 2015-16, leading the way with $14.3million in global progeny earnings.
Only 2 active sires in Australasia exceeded this progeny earnings figure for 2015-16.
Demonstrating the all-important G1 hallmarks of his great sire ZABEEL and grandsire SIR TRISTRAM, SAVABEEL has sired 12 individual G1 stars. All told, the Cox Plate winning sire has produced 56 stakes winners, with no less than 9 achieving black-type distinction during 2016/17.
Such a tally sees him lead the NZ way for stakes winners and sees him in the very top echelon of the elite producers in Australasia.
His incredible versatility is demonstrated by the array of distances over which his stakes-winning progeny excel. To this end, he has had 8 superlative sprinters, 27 black-type milers, 20 middle distance stars, 11 stayers, and has also celebrated 2 G1 Derby winners, 2 G1 Oaks winners and no less than 16 Cup winners.
SAVABEEL’s black-type achievements have escalated his stakes winners-to-runners ratio to a remarkable 9.3% - a figure that is a true benchmark for all Australasian sires.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, SAVABEEL has already staked his mark as a damsire, courtesy of black-type winner STELLA DI PACO.
Red hot demand in the sale ring, where he is regarded as New Zealand’s leading sire and where progeny have sold for up to $875,000.
In fact, so dominant is SAVABEEL that at the 2016 Premier Yearling Sale, he constituted 20% of its turnover and sired 4 of its top 6 yearlings sold.
