Spell for Prob­a­beel

- Sports · New Zealand · Horse Racing

Rac­ing: New Zealand mare Prob­a­beel will re­turn to New Zealand for a spell af­ter a gritty ef­fort in Satur­day’s Cox Plate.

The Sav­abeel 4yr­old’s bid was ul­ti­mately un­done by the fickle Melbourne weather that re­sulted in the Moonee

Val­ley track be­ing soft on the day af­ter heavy overnight rain. Rid­den close to the pace from an in­side draw, Prob­a­beel strug­gled to make ground in the fi­nal 400m on the test­ing sur­face, even­tu­ally fin­ish­ing a mer­i­to­ri­ous sev­enth be­hind win­ner Sir Dragonet.

“She’s pretty tired and knows she has had a hard run,” trainer Jamie Richards said. — NZ Rac­ing Desk
