That the family of ZEPHYRINE and DELICIEUSE LADY, dam of yesterdays top filly, is always in demand is not surprising, as there is a host of high class horses on the page. The dams of these two mares are own sisters and both have produced a Derby winner by ACATENANGO.
SURFISTA became the first winner for SHIROCCO and interestingly SURFISTA's dam is by a son of KENMARE, as is ZEGNA's dam ZEPHYRINE. ZEGNA's 2yo own sister ZAHRA was due to give her debut on 1st of August, but was stopped by an infection. The filly, who is held in high regards by her trainer Waldemar Hickst is hoped to start within the next 2 weeks and holds entries for all the main fillies races.
