This extremely well-bred young mare by Marju from a top Shadwell family represents an exciting opportunity for any breeder looking for a top-class pedigree.
Zeyada's dam (by Nayef) was a three-time winner, rated 87 for John Dunlop. Her half-brother, Laafiraaq, by Cape Cross, was rated 81 whilst in training with Mark Johnston.
In 2017 she had an outstanding filly by Brazen Beau and now carries to Cable Bay (to one cover).
Cable Bay, by Invincible Spirit, was a Gr. 2 winner over seven furlongs and has attracted huge books in his first two seasons at stud. He currently has 102 registered foals in his first crop so is sure to make a huge impact with his first runners in 2019. He has been snapped up to cover in the Southern Hemisphere and will be supported with 50 mares from the breeder of Black Caviar.
Zeyada has a strong physic and is available to view at Elusive Bloodstock in Lincolnshire.
