A Three Award Haul for CS

CORNERSTONE STUD landed a notable “three award haul” at the 2020 South Australian Thoroughbred Breeders Awards on Saturday 1st February. 

Winning the Leading SABOIS Breeders Title, as well as the Leading South Australian Breeder Award provided for an enjoyable and impressive evening within at the Adelaide Convention Center, overlooking the River Torrens and the Adelaide Oval.

However the highlight of the evening was Cornerstone’s very own Petra Caster accepting the award on behalf of the deceased ZEBEDEE for the Leading 2yo Sire in South Australia. A Stallion that endeared himself to those that worked alongside the son of Invincible Spirit, ZEBEDEE has importantly written his own chapter in the South Australian Thoroughbred Breeders history by winning the Title of Leading 2yo Sire.

With 7 yearlings due to be offered for sale at Classic, Melbourne and Magic Millions Adelaide the opportunity to race the offspring of a former Champion Freshman Sire of Ireland, will help to mitigate some of the sadness over his passing in October of last year.

Petra Caster, an excited Farm Manager declared “I LOVED the old grey boy. He was true gentlemen to work with and collecting this award on his behalf means the world to me. He is missed by everyone on the farm, but I do love to see his babies winning soo many races.”
