Horse Description:

Few horses can boast the names ZABEEL, SUNLINE, DANEHILL and SIR TRISTRAM in the first three lines of their pedigree but this striking individual has those names and more.

His sire Sun Ruler, is a son of the super racehorse and breeding legend ZABEEL out of the dual Cox Plate winner and three-time Australian Horse of the Year SUNLINE, a winner of Group 1 races in Sydney, Melbourne, New Zealand and Hong Kong in her amazing career.

Sun Ruler, a winner over 1200 and 1600m, has made a strong start to his stallion career with three winners from his first eight runners with all the winners showing the speed of their grand-mother Sunline, with victories over 1200 and 1400m.

This two-year-old is another graduate of the New Zealand Ready to Run Sale, which has been a goldmine for Ellerton Zahra Racing and this bloke is set to join the likes of ODEON and ROCK ‘N’ GOLD as winning selections from the Karaka sale.

The smooth mover’s dam The Pearl Singa, is an unraced daughter of Stradbroke Handicap winner and Doncaster Mile runner-up DANASINGA, the sire of Group 1 winners METAL BENDER, PIACHAY and PORTLAND SINGA.

Danasinga’s daughters have produced international star HABIBI as well as Group 1 winner ALTERED IMAGE and Group winners DANAUPAIR STARLET and AMEXED with multiple stakes performers coming from the proven crossing of sons of Zabeel with daughters of Danasinga.

This geldings pedigree features stakes performers at a mix of distances with Oaks Dream a winner and Group 3-placed as a two-year-old while the closely-related MONACHEE was a winner over 2400m and WAGE FREEZE won the Carbine Club Stakes over a mile at Flemington.
