 In 2017, News

Speedy Zoustar filly Lezoo was back in the winner’s circle overnight at Ascot capturing the Group III Princess Margaret Stakes (6f) as favourite.

Trained by Ralph Beckett, Lezoo won the Listed Newmarket Empress Stakes (6f) two starts ago and came into this race off a last start second in the Group II Duchess of Cambridge Stakes.

She settled better this time for Frankie Dettori and scored a length win and has now won three of her four starts.


Bred by Chasemore Farm, Lezoo made 77,000 guineas at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale last year and then was re-sold at the Arqana Breeze Up Sale this year fetching 110,000 euros when bought by Atlas Bloodstock.

She is the fourth winner from good producer Roger Sez, a Group III winner by Red Ransom stallion Red Clubs.

Lezoo is the best so far from the first crop of Northern Hemisphere bred 2YO’s by Zoustar, who stands this spring at a fee of $198,000 and shuttles from Widden Stud to Tweenhills Stud in the UK.
