Lot 591 b c Iffraaj – Bellazeel (Zabeel) $100,000 (draft: Trelawney Stud)
A colt with terrific pedigree attributes, by a high-quality proven International Group One stallion, from a good quality staying mare that impressed winning over 2100 metres.
In turn, grand-dam La Bella Dama has left six individual winners of 28 races and over $2 million in prize money.
“We really like this colt as a medium sized and particularly tidy animal with plenty of quality,” said David Ellis.
“Any time you can get Zabeel in the dam side pedigree, it really is worth taking note and Bellazeel was a very good race mare and certainly passed on good attributes in this colt.”
“Although not a two-year-old type, we could see him preparing as a spring three-year-old and really nice Derby sort of horse.”
“With his pedigree and the performance of his family: La Bella Dama winning the time-honoured weight-for-age Mackinnon Stakes (Gr. 1, 2000m) during the Flemington Spring Carnival, he was really good value at the price, and his dam is promising young mare.”
