Exceed & Excel's highest winning cross are Zabeel mares

Apr 09, 2015

The anticipated arrival of this magnificently strong filly by the leading 2 year old sire in Exceed & Excel (Danehill) from the group winning Zabeel mare National Treasure is upon us. She lands form New Zealand this week and will go to Kolora Lodge for a one week break and then straight into pre- training.

Appointed Trainer Tony Gollan is eagerly awaiting her arrival into his already strong stable. He said" without seeing her in the flesh, I already know she will run from watching the breeze up video. She will fit in well with us".

The cross of the Zabeel dam is Exceed & Excels most successful cross for winners. This cross has generated 18 winners and the son of Zabeel in Octagonal being the third best on 15.

Mr Bourke said "Australasian Thoroughbreds will syndicate this filly for racing and even if she fails as a racehorse, she will have a residual value on breeding and size alone. She stands 16 hands already and hasn't finished growing.The bloodline will cross back with the majority of the topline stallions"
