09/08/12 Classic success for ZEGNA

this provides a wonderful update for her yearling brother

Zilber060812.jpg3yo filly ZEGNA (Shirocco-ZEPHYRINE) won the Norwegian Oaks with 3 length and provided her mother not only with her second classic winner, but also her brother ZILBER by HIGH CHAPARRAL with a welcome update. He will be consigned as Lot 162 at the BBAG Yearling Sales on 31st of August by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK on behalf of his breeders, as was ZEGNA back in 2010, when she was purchased by Börje Olson on behalf of her owners Mr Ascot. She is in training with Frederik Reuterskjold, who already had formed her brother ZENATO to a multiple classic winner.
ZEPHYRINE was back in 1995 the first purchase of a yearling by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK at the Tattersalls Houghton Sales. Unraced due to an injury, she became one of the corner stones of the breeding operation of Graf und Grafin Stauffenberg. She produced the first yearling bred by the couple to be sold to one of the Maktoum brothers at public auction when MAKHSUSAH was sold at Deauville to Sheikh Hamdan. ZEPHYRINE produced their first classic winner in the above mentioned ZENATO, who won the Derby in Sweden and the St Leger in Denmark and Norway.  ZEPHYRINE is currently in foal to MONSUN and is the oldest mare in the broodmare band at SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN.
