Mick Channon’s 2YO Barbill kicked off an incredible ten-horse winning streak across Europe for Zebedee (by Invincible Spirit) at Bath last week.
With ten winners in ten days Zebedee has taken his tally of winners to 44 for the season keeping him firmly entrenched in the European top ten sires by winners.
Starting last Monday Zebedee has had winners almost every day in Ireland, England and Italy culminating in ten individual winners in a little over a week.
“Every morning we have been waking to the news that Zebedee has had another winner. They just kept on coming.,” enthused Sam Hayes of Cornerstone Stud.
Zebedee’s first Australian crop of yearlings sold for an average of $61,500 at sales around the country. They have been picked up by some of the best trainers in the country including Anthony Freedman, Tony Noonan, David Hayes, Waterhouse / Bott, Leon Macdonald, Toby Edmunds and Tony McEvoy.
“The fact he averages thirty 2YO winners a year in Europe has given breeders and trainers confidence. The reports have started rolling in from the breakers and we are trying to temper our expectations,” Hayes said.
Zebedee will be standing at a fee of $14,300 inc. GST this season making him one of the best value sons on Invincible Spirit in Australia.
