The bay son of Sir Tristram from the Nureyev mare Lady Giselle, iconic New Zealand thoroughbred Zabeel has carved out a place in racing history, so it is fitting that he has now been immortalised in bronze.
Cambridge artist Nicola Lewis spent hundreds of hours sculpting the horse, completing the project just weeks before Zabeel died in September 2015.
During his 22 years at stud - from 1991 to 2013 - Zabeel sired more than 1,000 individual winners, producing an unprecedented 106 Group One winners and 44 individual group one winners, with his legacy surpassing even that of his own sire, Sir Tristram.
“This bronze can stand alone, or alongside the sculpture of Sir Tristram that my father, renowned artist Rick Lewis, was commissioned to produce in 1984,” Nicola says.
Nicola Jain Collections has released a strictly limited edition of the bronze sculpture. Endorsed by Cambridge Stud’s Sir Patrick Hogan, the bronze is mounted on a black granite base accompanied by an engraved certificate, name badge and book.
