Biography


By champion sire Zabeel, Zavite is a bay gelding (male) from New Zealand that was trained by Anthony Cummings.

Zavite provided the Anthony Cummings stable and his owners with many great memories in a 67-start career which netted more than $2.4 million with big race wins in the Ranvet Stakes and Auckland Cup. He also won an Adelaide Cup, Launceston Cup, Australia Day Cup, McKell Cup and a Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Flemington.

On Zavite’s retirement in April 2012, Anthony Cummings said, “He was well-travelled and kept turning up time and again at the top level. He gave his owners a lot of fun and excitement.”

Zavite arrived at Living Legends in July 2012 and is now sharing a paddock with Might and Power. Both horses are the progeny of champion staying sire Zabeel, making them brothers with different mothers. This is just how they behave, spending most of the time within a few metres of each other.
