Horse Description:

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, Group 3 James & Annie Sarten Memorial Stakes (1400m) and potentially on a Cox Plate path. Zacinto also sired the stakes winner ZIGWIG while the exciting Sidestep has been sold to Hong Kong to target the Hong Kong Derby. Zacinto is well clear on the New Zealand's Leading Second Season Sire's list by both earnings and winnings.

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.
