04/07/02 Zabenz Sold and Set for Europe
r4zabenz4.jpg (13423 bytes)Saturday's runaway Grand National Hurdle winner Zabenz has been sold and will continue racing in Europe.

Unbeaten from three jumping runs throughout Melbourne, Zabenz, a son of the mighty New Zealand based Zabeel, has been sold for a reported $250,000.

His Australian trainer Robert Smerdon hinted of a sale to Europe immediately after the galloper had hurdled his way to an incredible win in the National on Saturday.

Smerdon said despite having only his third run over the jumps he was "clearly the best jumper" he had trained.

"From the first time we tested him over some jumps he just flew them," Smerdon said. "He's a natural."

Zabenz, who was a $180,000 yearling purchase, is understood to have entered quarantine and he could be in Europe before the end of the month.
