Melbourne Cup Confirmed For Zabeat
The Logan stable also confirmed this year's Gr1 Sydney Cup runner-up Zabeat (Rhythm-Zabest, by Zabeel) will be set for a tilt at the $5.1 million Gr1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on Tuesday 7 November. Co-trainer Donna Logan confirmed: "He has just come back into work & looks a million dollars. We haven't finalized his lead-up program, but the Melbourne Cup will be his main goal." Zabeat boasts an impressive 3200m record: he won last year's Gr1 Wellington Cup (3200m) & finished second in this year's Gr1 Auckland Cup (3200m) before going on to beat all but County Tyrone in the Gr1 Sydney Cup (3200m) on April 22.
