Beach Rehab Pays Off

Zabeel entire, Zabiso has undergone extensive beach rehab to get back to the top of his game.

At his first start for the stable in December last year, he unfortunately injured his tendon after winning the Woodford Cup at Warrnambool.

Since his injury he has spent the majority of his time at our beach stable where he has completed an extensive rehabilitation program.

The patience of the owners paid off at his third start this preparation, when Kerrin McEvoy timed his run to perfection to win the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes over 1800m.

“His two runs this time in have been good. He was fourth in the Seymour Cup after 10 months on the sidelines and then ran sixth, not too far away in the Cup Day Plate at Flemington. He has a lot to like about him and if he gets that one good crack at them, he has a very good finish,” said trainer Darren Weir.

Kerrin bided his time along the rails and when the gaps opened in the straight he unleashed with an almighty burst to win his first stakes race by a head to race favourite Pheidon.

The Group 3 Hobart Cup is now on the radar in February. It’s a race we know a lot about having won previous Cups with True Courser (2006), Offenbach (2008), Gotta Keep Cool (2009) and Hurdy Gurdy Man in (2013).

A lot of water has to cross the Bass Strait between now and then, but fingers crossed a long term plan can pay off.
