Lot 159 bay filly Savabeel – Kansas (O’Reilly) $210,000 (draft: Waikato Stud)

A filly by Cox Plate (Gr. 1, 2040m) winning three-year-old Savabeel, Champion NZ Sire eight times, she is another example of the “magic” Savabeel/O’Reilly cross that has produced 12 individual Group One winners.

One of the most notable is Amarelinha, whom Ellis purchased as a yearling at Karaka, and became New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year after winning the NZ Oaks (Gr. 1, 2400m), David & Karyn Ellis Classic (Gr. 2, 2000m), and Sunline Vase (Gr. 3, 2100m).

Along with other Savabeel/O’Reilly Group One winners he purchased as a yearlings at Karaka: 2000 Guineas (Gr. 1, 1600m) winner now stallion Embellish, and 1000 Guineas (Gr. 1, 1600m) winner The Perfect Pink.

Savabeel is represented by over 900 individual winners, including 137 stakes winners which surpassed his grand-sire Sir Tristram (Sir Ivor) while closing in on his sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram).

“She has a full-sister that is showing plenty of promise and to buy a filly of this quality for such a good value price is very satisfying,” said David Ellis.

“We’ve had plenty of success with this incredible cross and this filly is very much in the mould of Savabeel.”
