Sire: Zacinto

Dam: I See Fire

Colour: Bay

Gender: Colt

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Nov 5th, 2017

Country: New Zealand

Horse Description:

EZR has gone close to Group I glory with Zacinto’s stakes-winning son ODEON while the sire’s stock Into Rio and Necessitas have emerged from the Flemington stable with impressive results.

ZACINTO added another stakes win to his record in mid-January when SECRET ALLURE posted a Group 3 victory in New Zealand while the fillies was placed at Group 2 level on New Year’s Day.

This colt is out of the ENCOSTA DE LAGO mare I See Fire, who is a half-sister to the stakes winner ROYAL OCEAN while he hails from the same family as Listed winner ZELSNITZ, while further back in his pedigree is the blueblood L’on Vite, the dam of Irish & French Group 1 winner HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR and MILANOVA, who sold for $5 million as a broodmare in 2008.

This colt’s pedigree shows he could be anything on the racetrack while ZACINTO has had a Caulfield Guineas placegetter in VASSILATOR and Group 1 winner UGO FOSCOLO.
