The Chosen One (Savabeel) will have his final start in Saturday's Group 2 The Q22 (2200m) at Eagle Farm, before retiring to stand at Highview Stud in New Zealand where his fee has been set at NZ$4,000 (plus GST). 

The Chosen One has won seven times so far including the Group 1 Thorndon Mile (1600m) in January and trainer Andrew Forsman thinks he has a good chance of adding one last feature win to his resume, following an unlucky fifth in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2100m) last start.

"He's come through the Doomben Cup really well," he said. "We freshened him up going into it so we were a little bit nervous that he hadn't quite done enough work, but he was up to the mark and that run should have him spot on for Saturday. 

"He's definitely right up to them and in a more genuinely run affair with a little bit more luck when he needs it, he's going to be right in the mix."

The son of multiple champion stallion Savabeel (Zabeel) will stand for a fee of NZ$4,000 (+GST) with a live foal guarantee and he will stand alongside Wrote (High Chaparral) whose fee remains at NZ$5,000 (+GST) for the 2022 breeding season.
