Zacinto X Of The Essence

2 year old Bay Filly

Sire: Zacinto Dam: Of the Essence

It simply makes sense to capitalise on this latest ownership opportunity from Ellerton Zahra Racing.

This filly was sourced from the New Zealand Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale and is by ZACINTO, the sire of the stable’s lovely stayer and G1 placed ODEON, and up and coming Into Rio.  We've had 2 of the stallions progeny and both look like high class stayers of the future.

Zacinto was a classy galloper himself during his career in England, winning a Listed contest and a Group 2 event at his first two starts, becoming another stakes winner for his champion sire DANSILI, the sire of international superstars HARBINGER, FLINTSHIRE, RAIL LINK and THE FUGUE.

Zacinto has made a super start to his stud career in New Zealand with his son UGO FOSCOLO scoring in the Group 1 NZ 2000 Guineas and the Group 2 James & Annie Sarten Memorial Stakes (1400m).

Zacinto also sired the stakes winner ZIGWIG while Navagio scored a Melbourne win for the stallion on New Year’s Day at Flemington.

This filly’s dam Of The Essence was a 10-time winner in New Zealand at distances ranging from 1355m to 2200 and has had no runners to date but is a daughter of the YAMANIN VITAL, the sire of Group 1-winning stayers WHOSHOT THE BARMAN, HERCULIAN PRINCE and CUT THE CAKE.

This filly’s pedigree has Oaks written all over it but Zacinto’s progreny have been sharp enough to perform well as late two-year-olds.

An inspection of this athletic filly is a must. Contact Ellerton Zahra Racing for more information or to arrange an inspection of this cracking type.
