HORSE OF THE YEAR PROBABEEL RETIRED

16 Feb 2022 08:43


 

Cambridge Stud is sad to announce the retirement of its great race mare Probabeel.
The reigning New Zealand Horse of the Year and Champion Sprinter Miler was discovered to have a suspensory ligament injury to her off foreleg this morning. The mare is well and not lame but the injury is sufficient for owners Brendan and Jo Lindsay to pull down the curtain on a stellar career.
Probabeel raced 29 times, winning 13 races, four of them at Group 1 level in Australia. She ran second at an elite level eight times during her career – with four of them at Group 1 level. She is currently the only racehorse in the history of the race to claim the Karaka Million double, as a two year old and three year old. She retires as the current New Zealand Horse of The Year and Champion Sprinter Miler.
Probabeel was bred by Waikato Stud and purchased by David Ellis, Te Akau Racing, at the 2018 NZ National Yearling Sale for NZ$380,000. With Brendan and Jo the underbidders, she was offered to Cambridge Stud and so began her amazing career, most of which was spent in Australia where she was the benchmark middle distance mare of her generation.
