Zoustar 2YO Wins by Six on Debut
The most expensive yearling by Zoustar sold in 2021 when selling for $1.25million, well named colt Zamborghini scored a scintillating debut win on Sunday at Ballarat.
The Matt Laurie trained Zamborghini had shown ability at the trials and was sent to the post a hot favourite for the 1110m maiden.
He made light work of the assignment, zooming away from stakes-placed Godolphin 2YO Lascars to win in a breeze under Ben Melham.
Zamborghini holds an entry for the Group I ATC Sires Produce Stakes and is obviously held in high regard.
Bred by Widden Stud in partnership and offered at Inglis Easter where he was snapped up by his trainer, Zamborghini runs for a syndicate that includes his breeders.
Zamborghini is the first foal of Lady Jivago, a speedy stakes-winning two year-old by Beneteau from the Singles Bar branch of the Easy Date family that has produced Group I winners King’s Legacy, Oohood and leading sire Not a Single Doubt.
Lady Jivago has no yearling for the sales this year, but produced another colt by Zoustar last spring and is back in foal to him again.
