At Matamata in New Zealand, Waikato Stud's Cox Plate winning multiple champion stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a Group race success when 2YO New Zealand-bred gelding Sword Of Osman (Savabeel-Bunyah, by Distant View) left his rivals languishing in his wake with a brilliant win in the $70,000 Gr3 Matamata Slipper (1200m) for 2YO colts & geldings, defeating Thomas Aquinas & Handsome Rebel. Purchased for $165,000 by Te Akau Racing principal David Ellis at the 2017 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale out of the Trelawney Stud draft, Sword Of Osman improved his record to 2 wins from 3 starts for $68,250 in earnings.
