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.
His dam Nancy Wake was a dual winner in New Zealand at 1200m but has done well in the breeding barn producing five winners from seven runners, including GEORGEY AEROPLANE, who is a multiple Sydney winner for champion trainer Chris Waller.
Nancy Wake is a daughter of PERSONAL ESCORT, a son of the legendary US stallion MR PROSPECTOR whose daughters have produced NZ stakes winners BLOOD BROTHA, MADAM VICTORIA, PATRICK ERIN and THE BEE KEEPER.
