At Te Rapa in New Zealand, Cambridge Stud's deceased multiple Champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a Group race success when 5YO New Zealand-bred mare Lizzie L'Amour (Zabeel-Sabia, by Sadler's Wells) made a welcome return to the winner's circle when landing the $100,000 Gr2 Cal Isuzu Stakes (1600m) for fillies & mares, defeating Love Affair & Stolen Dance.Lizzie L'Amour improved her record to 6 wins (including the Gr1 New Zealand Stakes & Gr3 Waikato Cup) and 2 placings from 16 starts for $272,851 in earnings. The beautifully bred Lizzie L'Amour is a direct descendant of celebrated blue hen Best In Show. Close family members include Gr1 winning sires Denon and Good Journey, and multiple Gr1 winner and producer Chimes Of Freedom. This is arguably the most sought after bloodline in the world, with other esteemed members including multiple champion Australian sire Redoute's Choice, Hurricane Sky, Umatilla, Xaar, Al Maher, Sex Appeal (dam of stallion heavyweights Try My Best & El Gran Senor), Kentucky Oaks winner Blush With Pride, and her daughter Better Than Honour, who fetched a world-record price of US$14 million for a broodmare in 2008 and is the dam of US classic winners Rags To Riches & Jazil.
