Savabeel’s son a star in the making

Starrybeel

Starrybeel confirmed his status as a potential cup’s contender with a stylish display over 2200 metres at Ellerslie this afternoon.

The Waikato Stud graduate won the Dunstan Feeds Championship Final with plenty in hand.

Trained by Stephen Marsh, the son of Savabeel has now won four of his last six starts.

Starrybeel was a $180,000 purchase for Go Racing out of Waikato’s 2016 Karaka Premier Sale consignment.

He is a son of the O’Reilly mare Starry, who was unraced and is a half-sister to the Listed Widden Stakes winner Delta Girl.

Starry’s grand-dam is the dual Group Three winner and Group One placegetter Starcent.

Waikato Stud will offer a half-brother, Lot 435, by Pins to Starrybeel during the Book 1 session at Karaka later this month.

Starrybeel’s sire Savabeel enjoyed another top day at Ellerslie where his son Prince Jabeel won the Gr.3 City Of Auckland Cup.
