LA ZEEL is a lovely big style of a mare by renowned broodmare sire ZABEEL. Daughters of the Champion sire are responsible for producing some of the best runners we have seen on the racetrack in recent times including TARZINO, DUNDEEL, OCEAN PARK, SILENT ACHIEVER, FENWAY, COMMANDING JEWEL, DEAR DEMI and ATLANTIC JEWEL just to name a few.

LA ZEEL is a winner out of a running family as well, having won herself on 9 occasions and placing third at listed level, she is a half-sister to 9 other foals to race, 7 of them winners. LA ZEEL is also the granddaughter of the stakes winner BAYONETTE, making her a close relation to stakes horses SAVANA CITY, ROSE O’ WAR, GUNNAMATTA and MR VITALITY.

Currently in only her 5th season at stud, LA ZEEL is carrying a positive test to the exciting young son of More Than Ready in PLUCK. His oldest horses being just 2yo’s and his yearlings so far in the 2016 season have sold up to $100,000 at an average of over $60,000. LA ZEEL has previously had a cystic ovary removed, however this was prior to her latest cover and she went ‘in foal’ first time.
