Savabeel mare Fabulist was represented by a notable double today when her daughter Icebath was successful at Randwick and her brother Courier Wonder made a statement with a dashing debut victory at Sha Tin.

Trained by Brad Widdup, the Sacred Falls mare Icebath triumphed over 1600 metres to post her third career win and last season also gained black type credits with placings in the G3 Hawkesbury Guineas and the Listed South Pacific Classic.

She was a AU$100,000 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale graduate while Courier Wonder was bought out of Waikato Stud’s New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale draft for $150,000 by bloodstock agent John Foote.

The 3-year-old is trained by John Size and was ridden to an emphatic victory at the first time of asking over 1200 metres by Joao Moreira.

His dam Fabulist was a five-time winner and all five of her foals to race have been successful and also includes the Singapore black type winner Nowyousee.

Fabulist’s dam Fontaine won three races and was a Group 3 placegetter and the family also features the G2 Wakefield Challenge Stakes winner Kapsdan and the Listed Laurent Perrier Stakes winner Eccentricity and her Listed Moomba Plate-winning daughter Wyndam Glory.
