JEZABEEL (NZ)

Zabeel (NZ) - Passefleur (NZ)
FOALED:  1992
 
Jezabeel won the 1998 Foster's Melbourne Cup in a fighting display from another fine New Zealand bred mare, Champagne. In a stirring battle, after being headed in the straight, Jezabeel came again to outstay the younger mare, winning by a neck. She was ridden by Chris Munce, who also partnered the mare in her unlucky 6th placing in that year's Caulfield Cup. Ironically, both Jezabeel and Champagne were put out of the running during the Caulfield Cup by that race's eventual winner, the UK trained Taufan's Melody. 1998 is the second successive year that New Zealand bred horses have quinelled our richest race. Jezabeel is also the winner of the Auckland Cup.
