General Zabeel provided his legendary father with posthumous honours with his victory at Kembla Grange yesterday.
The son of the late, great Zabeel won for the second time in his brief career for Randwick trainer John Thompson.
General Zabeel had finished fifth when resuming and he relished the step up to 2000 metres.
He was purchased out of Hallmark Stud’s 2013 Premier Sale draft by Sydney agent Duncan Ramage for $220,000.
Now four, General Zabeel is out of the Montjeu mare Carib who is a grand-daughter of the multiple Group One winner Horlicks.
