At Riccarton Park in New Zealand, Waikato Stud's Cox Plate-winning champion sire Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a black-type success when 5YO brown mare Grazia (Savabeel-Trocair, by Flying Spur) opened her stakes account when bounding to a dominant win in the $50,000 Listed Spring Classic (2000m) for 3YO+, defeating Aspen Lass & Princess Brook. Owned by David Ellis's Te Akau Racing, Grazia improved her record to 4 wins and 5 placings from 17 starts for NZ$64,910 in earnings. Purchased by Ellis for $100,000 at the 2014 NZB Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Little Avondale Stud, Grazia is a full sister to Group winners Shillelagh & Tullamore.
