09/07/02 Zabeel's Sister Continues to Star at Stud
Everyone in Australia and New Zealand is fully aware of the magnificent achievements of the former Group One winning galloper Zabeel since he was retired to stud at Sir Patrick Hogan’s Cambridge Stud.

During his stud career Zabeel has sired a swag of star Group One winners including Octagonal, Might and Power, Jezabeel, Cronus, Sky Heights, Mouawad, Dignity Dancer, Champagne, Zacheline, Inaflury and Hill of Grace, and now its his female family that is proving their worth at stud.

Charming Life, who like Zabeel is by the former Cambridge champion Sir Tristram and out of top producing Nureyev mare Lady Giselle, was represented by an impressive stakes winner in France last week.

Wellbeing, who is by the world’s champion stallion Sadler’s Wells and out of Charming Life, bolted clear of his rivals for a three length win in the Grand Prix de Compiegne (2000m) at listed level in France.

As well as being the dam of Wellbeing, Charming Life has already proven herself in the breeding barn as the sire of the former top class galloper and promising young sire Kingfisher Mill. Ironically, he also stands in New Zealand, being based at Ray Knight’s Ashwell Farm near Matamata.

Wellbeing had already proven himself to be a galloper of high class. No doubt his best effort to date came in defeat. On that occasion he chased home the brilliant Mutafaweq in the Group One Coronation Cup at Epsom, going down by a mere short head. He is already a Group winner after downing Marienbard in the Group Three St Simon Stakes.

It’s understood connections of Wellbeing will target the Group Three Prix Gontaut-Biron in France on August 10.
