Von Tunzelman Wins Listed Kaimai Stakes
At Matamata in New Zealand, Cambridge Stud's deceased multiple Champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a black-type success when 4YO grey gelding Von Tunzelman (Zabeel-J'Adane, by Danehill) displayed his superior staying talent when scoring by 0.5 length for trainer Roger James in the $50,000 Listed Kaimai Stakes (2000m) for 3YO+, over 4YO mare Fanatic (Shocking-Komplete Klass, by Groom Dancer) & 8YO gelding Cruiser (Captain Rio-Morton Babe, by Orpen). This was the first stakes victory for the promising and lightly raced Von Tunzelman who improved his record to 4 wins and 4 placings from 10 starts for $69,425 earnings. Von Tunzelman is just the second foal to race from former smart racemare J'Adane (Danehill), who was placed three times at Gr1 level in the Mudgway Stakes (behind champion Kiwi mare Seachange) & Kelt Capital Stakes (behind Princess Coup) in New Zealand, as well as the Gr1 Winter Stakes (behind Nova Star) in Queensland.
