Savabeel makes his mark at Flemington
Waikato Stud’s multiple champion stallion Savabeel had his say on Melbourne Cup day at Flemington.
His gifted son Kaonic claimed the Listed Furphy Plate to give his sire his 79th stakes winner.
The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old has now won five of his 12 starts.
“He jumped brilliantly, put himself in a lovely spot and got into a great rhythm,” Purton said.
“He towed me into the race really well and I was always very confident.”
Kaonic sat in behind the pace before asserting himself in the closing 200 metres.
Bred by JML Bloodstock, Kaonic was a $425,000 Karaka yearling buy for agent Guy Mulcaster. The Savabeel entire is out of the Fastnet Rock mare Fast Love.
Successful at black type level, she is a half-sister to the Listed Sunline Vase winner A Chance To Dream.
The headline act in the pedigree is the Gr.1 English 1000 Guineas and Gr.1 Oaks winner Midway Lady.
Her daughter Eswarah emulated her dam by also winning the Oaks.
