Hazzabeel Wins Gr3 RJ Peters Stakes
At Ascot in Western Australia, Cambridge Stud's deceased multiple Champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a Group success when 5YO gelding Hazzabeel (Zabeel-Miss Avalon, by Fantastic Light) scored by 1.5-lengths for trainer Daniel Morton in the $150,000 Gr3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m) for 3YO+, over 4YO gelding Battle Hero (Stratum-Fromm, by O'Reilly) & 7YO gelding Tower Of Lonhro (Lonhro-Spire, by Danehill). Hazzabeel took his record to 6 wins and 1 placings from 10 starts for $203,300 earnings. Owned by Craig Thompson's Mt Hallowell Stud, Hazzabeel was purchased by Gai Waterhouse and bloodstock agent James Harron for NZ$180,000 at the 2012 NZB Premier Yearling Sale. Hazzabeel is expected to back-up in Saturday's $1 million Gr1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot.
