Classic New Zealand quality is written all over this gelding by one of Ellerton Zahra Racing’s favourite stallions ZACINTO.
ZACINTO’s stock has gone a great job for Ellerton Zahra Racing over the last few seasons, giving owners great bang for their buck with all returning their purchase prices a few times over on the track.
EZR’s quality performer ODEON has earned $800,000 for his owners while Brilliant Venture, Into Rio, Necessitas, Stayawake & debut winner Zac De Boss proving good money-spinners for their owners.
This gelding is out of the three-time New Zealand 1200m winner Forever Vital, a half-sister to Hong Kong Group 2 performer FLYING BLUE, seven-time SA winner Noble Connection and another Hong Kong winner Flying Elite.
The family has notched wins in several countries over all sorts of distances, showing the pedigree works in all type of conditions.
He’s closely related to the Group 3 performer Manhattan Von, the winner of 10 races and the 12-time winner Strongarm. He also hails from the same family as South African Derby winner Be Noble and New Zealand Group winners ALAGANT SATIN, MAXAM and PLAY THAT SONG.
ZACINTO is a proven performer for the stable, which will give this colt a head-start in his racing as Mathew and Simon have a great understanding of the breed.
