Savabeel’s sprightly son strikes again


Preditor has enjoyed a long and successful career in Singapore and the evergreen son of Savabeel added another notch to his belt at Kranji on Sunday evening.

The 9-year-old returned from a freshen-up to down his younger opposition over 1400 metres in the hands of Vlad Duric for trainer and owner Shane Baertschiger.

It was the gelding’s eighth win, which includes victory in the 2018 Listed Jumbo Jet Trophy.

Preditor was initially purchased out of Waikato Stud’s draft at Karaka in 2014 for $75,000 and he won his first two races in New Zealand for the now Victorian-based trainer Trent Busuttin before he relocated to Baertschiger’s operation.

The Chittick-family bred son of the Danasinga mare Bird, who won an edition of the Listed Warstep S., is a half-brother to the Listed Wairarapa Thoroughbred Breeders’ S. winner Flamingo.

Bird is out of a half-sister to the G3 Rotorua Challenge S. winner and G1 Air New Zealand S. runner-up Seraphic and also the family of the G1 Auckland Cup winner Chintz.
