Australian Bloodstock Win Wellington Boot

Tara Madgwick - Sunday April 5

The famed Australian Bloodstock colours are carried by a diverse range of horses that include Sydney Cup contender Raheen House, who won at Randwick on Saturday, as well as slick two year-old Zeftabrook, who took out the $200,000 Wellington Boot on Sunday.

The Kris Lees trained filly overcame an outside gate to travel just behind the leaders and was too strong in the run home to score a popular half length win as favourite.

Yet another fast two year-old by Hinchinbrook. Zeftabrook has had two wins and a placing from three starts earning over $165,000 in prizemoney.

Zeftabrook as a yearlingA $190,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Yarraman Park draft for Australian Bloodstock/Ronald Rauscher, Zeftabrook is a half-sister to Group I placed Denmagic and is the third winner from Magic Zefta, a half-sister to Group II winner Go the Knuckle.

The current yearling from Magic Zefta is a colt by Extreme Choice that made $210,000 at the Inglois Classic Yearling Sale for Bell River Thoroughbreds when bought by Ciaron Maher Racing / Astute Bloostock (FBAA).

Magic Zefta is now in foal to Yarraman Park’s young gun sire Hellbent.
