Today’s top price was recorded early in the day when Lot 930 was purchased by Queensland agent John Foote for $160,000. The colt offered by Brighthill Farm was the last Zabeel to go through the Karaka 2014 Sale, and potentially the last yearling by the great sire to be sold at Karaka.

Out of Al Maher mare Al Shamekha, the colt is from the international family of Group 1 winners Saddex (Sadler’s Wells) and Spinning World (Nureyev).

John Foote purchased the horse on behalf of his Queensland client Ian McCauley who was delighted with the purchase.

“Ian is a very good client and a great supporter of the Karaka Sales and he loves a good Zabeel,” commented Foote. “I’ve bought a number of horses over the years with Ian including another Zabeel called Turner Bayou that won the Queensland Cup last year.

“This colt is a good horse, he’s a strong Zabeel, well developed with a deep girth and Ian
was determined to buy him"
