KARAKA 2023 – Lot 534 Savabeel – Sombreuil Bay Filly



Lot 534 bay filly Savabeel – Sombreuil (Flying Spur)  (draft: Milan Park)

By Cox Plate (Gr. 1, 2040m) winning three-year-old and eight-time Champion Sire Savabeel (Zabeel), from a mare by Golden Slipper (Gr. 1, 1200m) winner Flying Spur (Danehill).

She is from a family that Te Akau knows well and already experienced considerable success, including grand-dam Te Akau Rose (Thorn Park) who David Ellis purchased as a yearling at Karaka.

Trained by Mark Walker, Te Akau Rose was one of seven winners for the stable in the Matamata Breeders Stakes (Gr. 2, 1200m) and went on to produce five individual winners of 14 races.

The family has plenty of depth, known by many as the Alberton family, has produced a host of high quality winners, none more so than Group One winner and first season sire Brutal (O’Reilly).

“She’s a beautiful filly with an enormous amount of quality and from a family that we have had plenty of success with in the stable,” said David Ellis.

“She’s from a great farm and any strong race form will really add to her residual value.”

The filly carries bloodline crosses to incredibly influential sires: Sir Ivor, Nureyev, and Northern Dancer.
