Savabeel 2YO adds to roll of honour

A Waikato Stud family with an abundance of quality two-year-old performers in its immediate ranks produced another promising youngster at Wyong this afternoon.

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained Major Beel opened his winning account over 1300 metres with a commanding performance in the hands of Tim Clark.

The Savabeel juvenile, who was third on debut last month, travelled sweetly in fourth spot one off the fence before angling three wide at the top of the straight and let down strongly to win going away by 1.3l.

Major Beel is the first foal of the unraced O’Reilly mare Gram, who has a yearling Savabeel filly and is back in foal to the Champion Sire.

Gram is a daughter of the G2 Karakatta Plate winner Gold Rocks, whose daughters Gold Fever and Gold Rocks both won editions of the G2 Matamata Breeders’ S. while Calaverite was successful at Listed level as a juvenile in the Gimcrack S. and St Albans S.

Major Beel was purchased out of Waikato Stud’s draft at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale for A$260,000 by Waterhouse, Bott and Kestrel Thoroughbreds with the Matamata farm remaining in the ownership.
