Can Zabeelionaire Amass A Great Fortune In 2012 Melbourne Cup?

Zabeelionaire will have his first run over 3,200 metres when he runs in the Melbourne Cup tomorrow November 6, 2012.

The Zabeel entire is yet to win a race this spring, with his best result being a fifth placing in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington Racecourse last Saturday.

Zabeelionaire has had the misfortune of drawing barrier 24 in the 2012 Melbourne Cup, however, that has not fazed trainer Leon Corstens.

Corstens learnt his trade under Bart Cummings, who is known as the master of Melbourne Cup victories, and is confident Zabeelionaire can come through with the goods tomorrow.

Here you will find all the form and facts on Zabeelionaire as he prepares to line up for the $6 million Melbourne Cup 2012.
