Impressive Gr. 3 winner ZAZOU (Shamardal-Zaza Top) seems to have have the right credentials to rectify the ambitions of his owner and trainer to aim for the Poule d┬┤Essai des Poulains, Gr.1 instead of the German 2000 Guineas, Gr.2. Already Gr.1 placed in France at 2, ZAZOU started for the first time in 2010 in the Dr Busch Memorial, Gr.3 at Krefeld and won easily. His dam ZAZA TOP (by Lomitas) is the best daughter of ZORINA (Shirley Heights-Nadia Nerina) a mare purchased by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK on behalf of Dr Wiesner in 1995 at the Tattersalls December Sales, when carrying her first foal.
ZORINA became a foundation mare for Gestuet Riepegrund and produced Grand Prix de St Moritz winner ZATOOF as her second foal, ZAZA TOP, a Stakes winner in Hoppegarten as her third and Stakes placed ZOLANGO as well.
