Cox Plate winner Savabeel has become the stallion premiership supremo, Champion New Zealand
Sire three times, Champion New Zealand Sire for Australasian success three times and Champion
New Zealand Sire for global earnings twice.

2016-17 achievements include a probable repeat clean sweep of New Zealand's major sire awards
and the distinction of being the country's leading sire for G1 wins (4), progeny earnings ($11m) and stakes winners (19).

In fact, with 19 stakes winners produced, only Savabeel's mighty sire Zabeel has ever enjoyed more stakes winners in a season.

Savabeel’s 65 individual stakes winners equals Zabeel’s tally at the same time and is highlighted by the 12 G1 stars: Lucia Valentina, Kawi, Hall of Fame, Sangster, Sound Proposition, Soriano, Savaria, Costume, Diademe, Scarlett Lady, Brambles and Pasadena Girl.

One of just two Australasian sires to achieve a phenomenal 10% stakes winners-to-runners ratio.

Staggering versatility: progeny dominate at stakes level across the full spectrum of race distances and at ages from two right through to eight.

Impressive returns across Australasia's 2017 yearling sales: 72 sold up to $750,000 for an average
of $215,244. 64 yearlings realised more than $100,000, all off a fee of $60,000.

Strong demand for older stock, with 3YOs selling for up to $756,000 at the Hong Kong International
Sale and with two daughters selling for over a million dollars at the 2017 Magic Millions National
Broodmare Sale.
